We are only a week away from the Super Bowl.  I know there are lots of people who don’t really care about the game itself.  But having good and yummy snacks while watching the commercials are necessary.  Even when it is just our family watching the game, we like to have a few fun snacks around.  If at anytime the rest of the year we decide to just do snacks for dinner, my 8 year old always calls it a “Super Bowl dinner”.  So at the very least we are making memories!  This year I think we are going to a friends house for the game, but my husband promised I would bring a few snacks.  We will have to see what I can come up with!

Super Bowl Round Up

The Super Bowl is on Sunday, and I have quite the line up for you today!  I am having a party, and I am still not sure what I am making.  Is that a problem?

So here is the line up: (corresponds to the numbers it the picture above)
1 – Avocado Bruschetta; this is a favorite at my house. Put out a bowl of the avocado mixture, a plate of toasted bread, and let your guests make their own!
2 – Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies; every party needs dessert!  These are super fudgy brownies topped with egg free peanut butter cookie dough!
3 – Barbeque Pulled Pork; great thing to put in the crock pot in the morning, and it will be ready when your guests arrive
4 – Spicy Chili-Lime Yogurt Dip; a healthy alternative to other dips.  Great with veggies or chips
5 – Fire Roasted Salsa; I can’t watch a big game without salsa!  I love the flavor the fire roasted tomatoes give to this quick salsa.
6 – Chicken, Bacon, Avocado Quesadillas; you can make these just before your guest arrive, and leave them in the oven at a low temp so they stay warm.  Great for with the salsa.
7 – Artichoke Dip; a warm and guilt free artichoke dip.  Dip with veggies or crackers.
8 – Fudgy Brownies; I think that any occasion is a good time for brownies!
9 – Chili; have a big pot of this simmering a way on the stove for people to help them selves.  Set up a toppings bar, and you are done!
10 – Philly Cheesesteaks; fun idea to have as a make your own station at your party
11 – M&M Cookies; quick, easy, portable, and fun!
12 – Chicken Club Eggrolls; great finger food, and they are a healthier alternative, because they are baked.
13 – Chipotle Bacon Ranch Dip; spicy ranch dip with bacon, made with Greek yogurt.
14 – Peanut Butter Bars; a quick no bake dessert that is a huge crowd pleaser.
15 – Avocado Hummus; hummus is a great snack, and adding avocado is such a great flavor combination.  Plus it is good for you!
16 – Italian Chicken Meatballs; tender, chicken meatballs that you can have in the crock pot during the game.

There are so many other great ideas out there too.  Here are some of my favorites!
