BMS student has Super Bowl award-winning snack recipe
BEMIDJI -- A Bemidji Middle School 12-year-old’s snack recipe is one of the best in the state.
Seventh-grader Marissa Gettemans is one of 52 winners of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee’s “Super Snack Challenge,” which asked students ages 8-14 to dream up healthy gameday snacks.
Each winner has been invited to attend a tailgate party for students during the 10-day Super Bowl festival. Ten “All-Pro Chefs” will be honored at the party and the winning healthy game day recipe will be chosen.
The Super Snack Challenge MVP will receive $25,000 to donate to the charity of his or her choice.
A handful of host committee representatives organized the snack challenge last month at the middle school. Students such as Gettmans submitted their healthy snack recipes -- avocado toast, trail mix, snack wraps, and more -- and learned how to make fruit kebabs.
Here’s Gettmans’ winning recipe for “Sweet and Spicy Nuts”:
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
