    Football Almonds for Caramel Chex Party Mix

    If you want to take this Turtle Chex Party Mix recipe up a notch, try making these adorable mini football almonds! I used melted white chocolate to draw the white lines on the almonds with a frosting bag. You could also mix together a little bit of powdered sugar and milk for a thicker glaze. I just stuck a few on top where they were visible. They are so easy to make and add the perfect festive touch for game day!

    And since I already had out the melted chocolate, I went ahead and drizzled some on top of the Turtle Chex Party Mix, too. In my opinion, the more chocolate, the better. :) This is definitely optional, but I like the color contrast and flavor it adds!
