When you think about watching sporting events, you probably think about eating savory snacks because they’re something that you can munch on easily throughout a one, two or three hour game. When it comes to watching a big game like the Super Bowl, those snacks can turn into a feast with dishes like nachos and guacamole, veggies and yogurt dip, chicken wings and homemade chili. Every good feast should include dessert, even if it’s not usually part of your game day routine, and these sweet snacks are a perfect addition to a sports-oriented party.
Chocolate Football Cakes are made by cutting out a chocolate sheet cake to form individual, football-shaped cakes. The best thing about them is that they don’t require an special equipment, so you won’t have a football-shaped pan taking up space in your pantry for the rest of the year.
Double Gold Caramel Corn is a salty-sweet snack that you don’t need to wait until after the game to serve. It’s got just enough salt to make it mouthwateringly addictive, so you might want to make a double batch so you don’t run out.
Buttermilk Lime Shortbread Bars deliver a refreshing burst of citrus and they’re even easier to make than regular lemon bars. The whole recipe can be whipped up in the food processor and the bars can be made in advance, stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them.
Coffee and Kahlua Brownie Bites are a good choice because everyone is happy to see a chocolate dessert out there, and these bite-sized brownies are enough to satisfy a sweet tooth without making you overly full. They’re rich and chocolaty, with just the right amount of coffee to perk you up if your team isn’t doing well.
Chocolate Cream Filled Chocolate Cupcakes are just like your favorite snack cake – only with a lot more chocolate. The moist homemade cupcakes are filled with a rich chocolate filling, and they’re good enough that you can make room for one even if you think you’re already full.
Classic Red Velvet Cupcakes are never a bad choice for a party, but the recipe is versatile because you can color the cupcakes to show your team spirit. Make orange (with blue frosting) for the Broncos or navy blue (with white or green frosting) for the Seahawks.
