Super Bowl Snack Time!

 


If you’re anything like us here at Snooth Eats, you’re incredibly excited for the biggest night of the football year--and the endless possibilities that are available when it comes to Super Bowl snacking. So while your eyes are glued to the television screen Sunday night, your mouth should be equally busy: chewing, chomping, dipping and devouring delicious treats all night long.

Rather than focus on one food blog that has a variety of recipes appropriate for this night of sacred snacking, we decided to give you a smorgasbord of recipes from some of our favorite blogs across the interwebs, ranging from the most traditional recipes to the slightly strange, but definitely delicious.
In my opinion, sports-watching snacks need to have a variety of savory and saucy finger foods, dips and sweet bites (these are most necessary for when your team is down 40-7 in the final quarter, and you really need to stuff your face with something made with chocolate to ease the pain). In the finger-friendly foods category, we suggest Roasted Jalapeno Popper Potato Skins, Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls and Air-Fried Hot Wings. For the dippables, we’ve found some great recipes for Hummus, Guacamole, Baked Wonton Chips with Corn Salsa, and a Roasted Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar dip that will blow your football uniform tube socks right off. Want to really blow your guests away with a quirky yet healthy snack? Serve up a plate of Mini Cauliflower Pizza Bites. Low in carbs, high in awesome.

While some of you Super Bowl-watchers may be strictly into the finger foods for this night, others may want to eat something a little more dinner-esque. If that’s the case, we suggest this Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich, which only requires a slow cooker, some bread, and an empty stomach. Also, check out this Chili Tamale Pie. You’ll never look at the word ‘casserole’ the same way again.

For the football-loving sweet tooth (or the sweets-loving football tooth) out there, many of our favorite foodie blogs have delicious sugary treats for the big game. These Wannabe Snickers Bars will make you feel like you’re biting into the classic chocolate bar without the guilt. If you want to keep things simple, check out this recipe for Super Bowl Football Sugar Cookies, decorated to your heart’s content and super simple to make. To really show off your baking and decorating skills, whip up a batch of these Championship Chocolate Cupcakes, decorated with the team colors of your choosing. (Tip: red and gold frosting is much easier to come by than purple and black, just saying).

At this point, any team could win on Sunday night, but if you serve up any or all of these treats at your Super Bowl party, we’re certain of a few definite winners: you, your party guests, and your happy bellies. Cheers, and may the best team win!

    Thank you Sara, for the Championship Chocolate Cupcakes shoutout! BTW, if I had the gold foil liners on hand at the time of the post, the cupcakes would have all been red & gold. Have a terrific weekend and enjoy the game.
