When it is football season, or if you are just having a house full of guests, it is time to get thinking about some easy crowd pleasing Superbowl snacks! People love finger foods. They want something easy that they can quickly grab and not miss a minute of the action! Here are a couple of recipes that are sure to keep the crowd happy–unless their team is losing–I don’t have a recipe to fix that!
Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
One of the best Superbowl snacks if Buffalo Chicken Dip. Shredded cheese, shredded chicken, ranch dressing (or mix it up and substitute blue cheese dressing) and cream cheese bake up for a hot and bubbly easy appetizer.
Sprinkle blue cheese crumbles or cheddar cheese on top for a garnish and you are ready for any party. In a pinch use canned or rotisserie chicken to save time. I went ahead and doubled the recipe so you will have plenty for a party! Be sure to make sure your baking dish is large enough.
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! This buffalo dip tastes amazing.
How to make Buffalo Chicken Dip
Once you cook the chicken breast, it is easy to shred. Everything else is just measuring sauces and mixing. So easy! It is a recipe that everyone will love! You can whip it up ahead of time and just refrigerate it until you are ready to heat it up and serve! We serve this dip with Chicken in a Biskit crackers, celery, and even tortilla chips.
- Canned chicken can easily be used. I use this when I am short on time.
- Chicken can also be quickly cooked in the Instant Pot. Place a couple of chicken breasts (I cut mine in half) on the trivet inside the pot. Add about 1 cup water and cook at high pressure for 10 mins and then slow release for 5 or 10 minutes. Release pressure, remove the liquid and trivet. If you haven’t already cut chicken breasts in half. I use an electric hand mixer to quickly shred the chicken.
- This Buffalo Chicken Dip can also be cooked in the slow cooker. Lightly spray a 3 quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place the mixture to the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 2-3 hours, until hot and bubbly. Keep the dip warm throughout your whole party just leave it in the crock-pot on warm.

Sweet Super Bowl Party Snacks
Take your favorite brownie and cut it into a 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 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!
