SEC Wild Card

Old Missouri

There is no mistaking Memorial Stadium. The horseshoe shape & the highly regarded “M” etched in stone marking the north end zone makes it one of the most recognizable on game day & keeping the spirit alive are members of the Tigers Lair where select members of the student body get a chance to show their team pride. Within the group, the front 60 patiently wait their turn on game day to get a little splash of school color painted on their person. They also uphold the coveted tradition of waving the Big “M” flag in the stands while Mizzou players take to Faurot Field. You can make your own Big “M” Mizzou Flags from black card stock & gold shaded wooden block letters that add instant charm to tailgating socials. When paired with Black & Gold Crunch Bars, football fanatics are bound to go wild.

1/4 cup butter
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup lightly salted peanuts, chopped
1 {10-oz} package bittersweet chocolate morsels

Gold Stripe Royal Icing

Melt the butter in a Dutch oven over Low heat. Stir in the marshmallows & the corn syrup; cook until the marshmallows are melted, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat & stir in peanut butter until smooth. Stir in the cereal & peanuts. Press the mixture into a 13 x 9-inch pan lined with parchment paper. Microwave the chocolate & peanut butter morsels in a large glass bowl on HIGH 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir the mixture until smooth & spread the over the cereal blend in the pan. Cool completely & allow chocolate mixture to set, about 2 hours. Cut into bars & place over a wire rack. Prepare the Gold Stripe Royal Icing & Fill a pastry bag fit with a No. 1 tip. Pipe lines over the top of each bar to resemble tiger stripes. Allow to dry. Store at room temperature.

The Extra Point

Use confetti sprinkles in your team colors for a quicker version. Sprinkle over the chocolate mixture before it sets.

The Big “M” Mizzou Flag

Use a gold or yellow marker to color miniature wooden “M” block letters.
Allow the color to set.

Cut 2 x 3-inch rectangles from black card stock. 
Attach the wooden letters to the center of each rectangle with glue & allow to dry.

Pierce two holes using a standard craft punch in the center of the rectangles.
Weave a piece of a wooden coffee stick through the holes.

Thread twine through the coffee sticks on the back, if desired, to create bunting.
Sprinkle the flags throughout your tailgating space.
