Natalie's M&M Cookies
"Fill these cookies with M&Ms that match your favorite team’s colors for a knockout superbowl cookie that’s sure to please your guests."—Natalie P.
Laura's Caramel Pretzel Bars
"Caramel Pretzel Bars are the ultimate game-day sweet. Sweet and salty, a brown sugar shortbread crust is covered with homemade caramel and pretzels. Plus they can be made up to a week ahead of time. What's not to love about these addictive treats?!"—Laura D.
Monica's Football Cupcakes
"I made these fun football cupcakes for my son last year. I picked up this easy trick of making the "footballs" by simply using Andes Mints, a sharp paring knife, and a few white sprinkles. Plop the footballs over cupcakes, iced brownies or just serve them as they are on a plate."—Monica M.
Caroline's Superbowl Birthday Cake
"My dad's birthday was over the Superbowl this in 2011 so we made him a Superbowl birthday cake. To be honest, we just used boxed cake mix and frosting but the football shape was achieved by a stencil and some serious knife skills from a rectangle pan. The colors were achieved with food coloring—with the addition of some chocolate frosting as well."—Caroline C.
"Each football season, I enjoy trying new dessert recipes for tailgating; however, these blondies are a standard. They're rich with brown sugar, gooey, and loaded with pecans, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. The fun part is customizing them to your tastes - you can include or exclude whatever stir-ins you want (I've used toffee chips, butterscotch chips, and M&Ms before instead of the white chocolate). They've never failed to please whatever crowd I've given them to!"—Amanda M.
Kelly's Sweet Potato Nut Bread
"This nut bread doesn’t contain nearly the fat that typical pumpkin breads do. And it's tastier than most -- might be the rum. You could use twice as much nuts in this, or add raisins or black currants or dried cranberries or other dried fruits to it. I used a yam, but a sweet potato would be just as tasty. The flavor in this bread is far better than that made with canned pumpkin. A couple slices of this with fresh fruit would make a dandy Super Bowl breakfast, or serve it with a scoop of caramel ice cream for dessert."—Kelly A.
Richelle's Jack and Coke Cupcakes
"For game day I am whipping up a batch of Jack and Coke Cupcakes: a Coca-Cola Cake frosted with Double Chocolate Whiskey Buttercream. The frosting will knock your socks off!"—Richelle T.
"Can't go wrong with a solid basic brownie! Totally easy to whip up & a total crowd-pleaser every time"—Posie H.
Julia's White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies
"White chocolate macadamia nut cookies. First toasting nuts, then rolling them in salt - before adding to cookie dough makes all the difference!"—Julia R.
