11 Sweet Snacks for Football-Watching
I'm sure I'm not the only one throwing football-watching parties as long as my team's still fighting in the playoffs. (As the New York editor I probably shouldn't admit that that team is the 49ers, but hometown loyalties die hard.) Wings and guacamole and pizza are all classics, and beer is pretty much the uncontested beverage of choice. But what about sweets?
While watching the game, you want something snackable and pass-around-able: no messy pies or puddings here. I'm partial to all-American inclusions like peanut butter and Rice Krispies. And maybe it's just all the chips and pretzels that get me thinking this way, but I'd like a little salty with my sweet.
So here are 11 recipes to make you the most popular guest (or host) at your playoff party.
