Superbowl Party Foods

Which team will win the Super Bowl on Sunday?  There are always some sports fans among my graders who know the score. They know the players and the teams. They even knew the team colors, can you believe that?  They all love Tom Brady. My kids think he's going to be on the winning team.

Well, we shall see.   I have a fun little challenge for my classroom kids.  Those who predict the winner correctly will win a football sweatband for their wrist.  Those that predict incorrectly get to do 12 pushups.   And I have lost in years past. It wasn't pretty watching me trying to do more than 12. So we keep it at 12 pushups.

Our class graph....looks like the Patriots might be the favorite!  

This easy baked brie has dried cherries and pecans and jam inside. I shape it like a football and then cover it with puff pastry. The recipe for the Baked Brie is HERE.  At the Pepperidge Farm Website you can also watch a video on how to make the Baked Brie. It is to die for Yummy as a cracker dip!

I shaped my brie cheese like a football

I put the letters on with the extra puff pastry. I fill it with raspberry jam, some brown sugar, pecans and dried cherries. I wait to bake it till just before the Super Bowl starts.  Triscuits, Pretzel Ritz and Wheat Thins are good with it.....
Yummy baked brie with dried cranberries and pecans inside..

This yummy stuff is my black bean and corn and avocado salsa.  It's a really fresh and kind of filling and really good! 

This yummy black bean salsa is made from black eyed peas OR black beans, white sweet corn, green pepper,
avocado, tomato, cilantro and purple onion, with a few dashes of lime and Italian Salad Dressing and salt and pepper. It's a crowd pleaser with Tostitos and these yummy pretzel crackers. and very filling! .
Touchdown TreatsHERE at the Family Fun website I found these cute cupcake football players I thought would be super cute to make for a Super Bowl Get together......M and Ms for the eyes and yellow buttons, black skinny licorice for the facemask.  Kids would LOVE these.
These cookies were from "On the Record Sports" and would be easy to make
from a chocolate cookie recipe....Only need a little icing in white!
Here at Luxe Finds was a cute way to do your 7 layer dip on the top....just make the guacamole
layer show on top and make lines from a piped bit of sour cream....then top with 2 colors of cherry tomatoes....so cute! 
Now here's my dipped strawberries...what if you added the white laces in white chocolate on
top...and removed the stems...wouldn't they look like footballs? Yeah they would....yum...another idea....

sports cupcakes
Another bunch of cupcakes that even looked easier were these "football" shaped cupcakes....
or make them as sugar cookies topped with chocolate icing and the white lacing....EASY!

Those will be good Super Bowl Party foods, won't they? They'll go nicely with PIGS IN A BLANKET  and chicken wings FOR SURE!
