13 Sensational Super Bowl Party Recipes


The big game is this weekend! Who will you be rooting for? As much as I love football, I’m pretty apathetic about who wins the Super Bowl this year. I don’t have a great deal of like or dislike for either the Colts or the Saints, so I don’t find myself rooting for anyone in particular. Now, what I can get excited about is food! Any big game is a great opportunity to gather with friends and enjoy all of the dip and snack food that your tummy can handle. I have put together the 13 most popular recipes on Brown Eyed Baker that are perfect for such an occasion.

Dippity Dip Dips

P1020012-3 Classic Hummus
Serve this with pita chips and vegetables






IMG_9361-3Cheddar Ale Spread
Serve with vegetables, pretzels, tortilla chips, potato chips, crusty bread… pretty much anything you’d like!





IMG_7057Chicken Spread
This is one my mom is famous for. She has made it for functions since I was little, and it’s fabulous. Best served with crackers.





IMG_6876Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
This one always gets rave reviews. All of the great flavor of chocolate chip cookie dough without the raw eggs. Score! Serve with nilla wafters, pretzels, sugar cookie sticks, or graham crackers.






Fun Finger Foods

A unique and delicious use for the traditional Italian cornmeal dish. Use your favorite toppings!







Fontina-Stuffed, Bacon-Wrapped Dates
The name really speaks for itself: cheese and bacon? Yes please! Throw in some dates and this is an utterly amazing appetizer.






Soft Pretzels
The ultimate party food! I have made them a few times, and while this is my favorite recipe from the site, I made an Alton Brown version recently that was even better!





Pepperoni Bread
This is a childhood favorite of mine and I could easily scarf down an entire loaf myself. These are easy and a sure crowd pleaser!






Sweets for the Super Bowl


Sugar Cookies
If you have a favorite team, use my tips on decorating with royal icing to create a logo or simply fill in colors and write “Go Colts!” or “Go Saints!”. If you don’t have a preference, you could always make football cookies.





Marshmallow Crunch Brownie Bars
These have been dubbed “magical” and they are definitely fitting for sports-watching of any variety.







Chocolate Chip & Pretzel Cookie Bars
Chocolate and pretzels, a perfect marriage of sweet and salty flavors, combine to make absolutely delicious bar cookies.






French Chocolate Brownies
Although a little more involved than your typical one-bowl brownies, these are still THE best brownies that have ever come out of my kitchen.






No-Bake Cookies
One of the most popular recipes ever on Brown Eyed Baker and for good reason – they are ridiculously easy to make and they’re delicious!








Enjoy the food and the fun! I hope your team wins! 🙂

    Mmm. I’m so allover the the chocolate chip cookie dip recipe. Sounds really good! So does the pretzels – but I’ve always had a thing for pretzels.

    Steelers eh? In the AK, it goes either way…

    Fabulous list of recipes! I’m on my way to the recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip ~ my daughter and granddaughter will watch a dvd and eat a whole batch of the real cookie dough between them, so a safe alternative is wonderful! I hope you have a super Super Bowl Sunday.

    HI, I want to ‘borrow’ your pep/cheese/bread recipe for super bowl, it looks fantastic and I also want to make your marshmallow crunch brownie bars, but the link for that is for your sugar cookies. The cookies look great too, but after seeing the chocolate and marshmallow I have a craving 🙂 Thank you

    Hi Kelsomom, sorry about that error! The link is now fixed above, and I have included it below as well. The brownies are so yummy, enjoy!

    Any combination of these recipes would make a great Super Bowl feast! The chocolate chip & pretzel bars really caught my eye.

    Oh wow that cheddar ale spread sounds so yummy! What a wonderful guide to tailgating foods for the big game day!

    I made the chocolate chip pretzel bars back in August and I can’t wait to make them again this weekend!

    My family and I aren’t too big on the whole Super Bowl thing, but this list seems great for anyone that’s having a Super Bowl party. Great choices ♥ (@StephanieVelezR)
