Cracker Jack & Pretzel Treats

Buy me some peanuts and crack jacks…oh, oops, wrong sport? These little bites are held together with marshmallows, peanuts, pretzels and crackers, and they are always in season. Plus, tops take 30 minutes to make, so you can throw them together under cover before the game.

Caramel Mocha Nutella Brownies

The only thing better than a margarita? A marrow in dessert form. These tequila-infused truffles are crunchy treats your guests will love to eat before, during and after the game. I’m not saying you should wash them down with shots of tequila, but I don’t either not says that…

Beer and pretzel cupcakes

Ah, beer. A must-have for any Super Bowl party, these cupcakes are basically the closest you’ll get to standing in line at the concession stand at the actual game. If you’re looking to get drunk, these won’t do you any good, because there just isn’t enough alcohol per cupcake after baking. But it is enough to give it a slightly strong flavor, along with a sweet-and-salty frosting.

Recipe from Stetted

Yes, you can make a cake. You can even make a football cake. Or you can make these little cake balls on a stick dipped in frosting and covered in colorful sprinkles. You choose, but as long as it’s cake in one form or another, your guests will be big fans.

Cocoa Krispie Football Treats

We’re big fans of desserts that include cereal, and these Cocoa Krispie treats (shaped like footballs!) are a must-have addition to your Sunday menu.

The key to these cupcakes is the chocolate frosting in the shape of a football, duh. While this chocolate-on-chocolate recipe is delicious, you can basically use any cupcake recipe you like to make these festive desserts. Extra points if you use green cupcake holders to recreate the field.

Chocolate-dipped football strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are always a good idea and the simple addition of white chocolate can automatically turn these into a Sunday football treat. Make them in advance, leave them in the fridge and put them on a tray just before kick-off.

Apple pies aren’t just for Thanksgiving, and these tiny football-shaped pies are the cutest addition to your party dessert table. All you need is a football-shaped cake tin, puff pastry and the filling. One will never ever be enough.

Super Bowl M&M Cookies

It doesn’t matter which teams are playing in the big game – there’s an M&M color to match their jersey. These cookies are a fun way to support one (or both!) teams, but you’ll need to do some advance planning for this dessert if you want to order custom M&Ms.

Mini Red Velvet Cheesecakes

Whether it’s the Falcons, Patriots or any other team with red in the logo that makes the Super Bowl, these bb red velvet cheesecakes are delicious and festive for any Super Bowl soirée.

Recipe from Natasja’s kitchen

Everything is bigger in Texas, and this chocolate cake with chocolate frosting lives up to the hype. It’s made in an 18×13″ pan – which is probably a bit bigger than the Pyrex you have in the cupboard – but it makes for a thinner, crowd-pleasing cake once it’s cut into squares. So yeah, you should probably invest in another one pan.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Ball

If you’re looking for something your guests can eat without having to make a plate, this sweet combination of peanut butter, sugar, cream cheese, and Reese’s Pieces is a simple but flavorful no-bake dish. Just make sure to do it at least an hour in advance and not while your guests are in the Uber, so this baby has time to settle down.
