Superbowl Sunday!

With Superbowl Sunday rapidly approaching, I thought I'd do a round-up of different treats and snacks that are great for game watching with a small group or a crowd. Whether you are a Steelers fan or a Cardinals fan or like me a Patriots fan, Super Bowl Sunday is always a great day to bring friends together to hang out and watch the game, the musical performances and the commercials (always my favorite part when my boys aren't playing) and of course eat tons of food!

Below are some treats that I've made over the last six months that I think make great Super Bowl Sunday food.


Jalapeno Poppers on the Grill - This take some time to prep and cook, but I promise they are worth it. They are really only conducive to those of us who live in warmer climates and are cool with grilling outside as I'm not sure they'll work too well on an indoor grill.

Balsamic Drummettes
- Here's a different take on Buffalo Wings, though you can never go wrong with Buffalo Wings, these are great if you want to offer a variety of wing flavors and super easy!

Zucchini Fries
- For anyone who's being a bit more health conscious these are great, crispy with tons of flavor and a great baked alternative to fries. The apricot dipping sauce totally makes them too.


BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches
- This is an awesome slow cooker meal that you can start either the night before or early Sunday morning and have an easy peasy sandwich for yourself and your guests.

Cheddar Burger with Chipotle Ketchup
- The star here is the chipotle ketchup. If you make burgers your own way, take the time to make the chipotle ketchup, it's a winner.

Chipotle Mango Pulled Pork - This is a new creation (just posted last week) but it was so easy and flavorful and another slow cooker meal that would be great for feeding a whole crew on Super Bowl Sunday. Topped with avocado or coleslaw it's great.


Red Velvet Cupcakes - If you are a Cardinals fan, these delicious red cakes are the perfect sweet treat for when your team wins.

Boston Cream Cupcakes
- I know, I know they have Boston in the name, but these black and gold treats are the Steelers colors and a must have for those Steelers fans out there. Plus they are made with prepackaged cake and pudding mixes making them super fast & easy

Hope these ideas help you in planning your perfect Super Bowl party. Enjoy the game!
