Super Bowl Food Ideas

Posted by  ·  February 5, 2011  ·  Last Updated: August 8, 2017

Ready for some super bowl food ideas? Football games are a great reason to gather family and friends. Some people come for the football but equally as many come for the good.  Football lovers like finger food. Bite size snacks are perfect for fans to grab so they don’t miss any action.  Here are a couple of recipes that are sure to keep the crowd happy–and cheering even if their team is having a rough night.

Super Bowl Food Ideas

This Buffalo Chicken dip is one of my all time favorites.  I am constantly asked for the recipe, and when I am bringing a dish to share at different parties, this one is often requested!  Luckily it is super easy to make, so I never mind whipping it up for a football loving crowd.  The baked chicken dip is best served hot, but it seems to disappear quickly even when it is cold.  The ranch dressing and hot sauce give this dip the traditional “buffalo wing” flavor, but I think the bonus flavor is in the cream cheese.  To be fair, I do believe that cream cheese is a bonus that can make any dish better!

Crowd pleasing Buffalo Chicken Meatballs with ranch have all the flavors of buffalo hot wings, with out the guilt. If you’re a fan of buffalo chicken wings, you’re going to want this finger-lickin’ good recipe.

This sassy spicy southern hot corn recipe doubles as a side dish AND a dip. Get ready to rock those parties and potlucks and be sure to have the recipe handy – people will totally harass you for it!

Next up, these honey mustard pretzels make a great crunchy snack!  These are super easy to make and will jazz up the boring ole pretzel!  They are also conveinent to place around the football viewing area in little bowls, so no one will have to miss a single play (or commercial) to grab a little snack.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits are the perfect side to any meal from spaghetti to fried chicken. As much as I love a good biscuit, adding cheese and garlic takes these from regular ol’  biscuits into crazy good garlic cheese bombs, a side that will truly be the star of your meal!

This 5 Minute Million Dollar Dip from only has 5 ingredients and is SO easy to make! It is incredibly delicious and totally addicting too. Everyone always raves about this dip and it’s a huge hit wherever you take it! 

Need something sweet?  Do I even have to ask?

Football Brownies

Take your favorite brownie  and cut into football shape with a football cookie cutter. Let’s be honest here…if you have been cooking and cleaning all day in preparation for a football party, a brownie mix will be perfectly suffice for this treat. Add some white frosting details and you have a simple and cute sweet treat!  The fact that your brownies are in the shape of footballs and have icing piped on them, is enough to make any brownie mix taste fabulous!  But, if you have just a little extra time, and you are going for the big win, check out Cookies & Cheese she made Ina Garten’s Outrageous Brownies for her footballs.

Football Rice Krispie Treats

Put a small twist on an old classic by using the cocoa krispies versus the regular ones. The cocoa krispies give a fabulous chocolate flavor and also lend their fabulous brown color which is perfect for these football treats!

These football chocolate covered strawberries are easy to make and just as easy to pop in your mouth.  They will make your super bowl party theme really come together.

Have a fun Super Bowl!  I hope that your team in victorious.  Unless they are playing against my team, then I just hope that your party is wonderful!  Enjoy!

    We make the buffalo wing dip ALL THE TIME! It is soooooooo incredibly yummy!!!! I just mix everything together and throw it in the crockpot rather than in the oven - turns out wonderfully. Also trying eating it with Frito Scoops. We have had it with blue cheese dressing rather than ranch before to. Oh my. This wasn't on my list of items to make for tomorrows game, but I might just add it on!
