17 Super Bowl foods that are easy and delicious!
Whether you’re into football or not, you probably know the Super Bowl is coming up. I’m not at all a sports fan. I never know who is playing in the Super Bowl. But we do like watching the commercials sometimes. And we really like the excuse to have Super Bowl foods. You can’t go wrong with snacks — at least not at my house.
I love pulling together easy snacks that are also so yummy. And I really love easy snacks that are delicious as well. I want to do more than open a bag of chips and a container of dip, but I also don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen.
Your family and friends will love these Super Bowl foods. You’ll love how easy they are to make and clean up from!
It doesn’t get much easier than this 2-ingredient meatball pocket recipe. Of course you could make your own meatballs from scratch, but the frozen ones work great for this recipe. Even my guys, who aren’t big on eating meat, like these meatball pockets!
If you’ve never tried this bacon ranch cheese bread recipe, you must! It’s one of those perfect Super Bowl foods because it is handheld and so incredibly delicious. You guys, I’m married to a very particular eater and this is hands-down his favorite food that I make. Since it uses a frozen bread dough for the base, it’s also easy. You just need to plan a bit of time for it to rise.
Another great warm Super Bowl food is crispy baked quesadillas. You can even customize this easy baked quesadilla recipe based on what the folks you’re serving like most. My daughter and I go for chicken, bacon and ranch. My husband and son love bacon and onion.
And if you’re serving up the baked quesadillas, you need chips and salsa to go along with them. Of course, you don’t need quesadillas for an excuse to have chips and salsa. They’re a party staple! To kick things up a notch, try out this easy pantry salsa recipe. You can make the salsa from scratch in just a few minutes.
You can’t go wrong with a cheeseball either. This 3-ingredient Parmesan ranch cheeseball comes together in minutes and is super tasty. While you can cover it in pecans for added crunch, we eat it plain with crackers and pretzel sticks!
Pizza is one of the perfect Super Bowl foods. It’s delicious, easy to eat on the couch and everyone loves it. But why not get creative this year and make some non-traditional pizzas that are even easier than making traditional pizza?! You can make this BLT pizza recipe a bit ahead of time. You don’t have to worry about it getting too cold since it’s topped with cool ingredients. Made with a crescent roll crust, this BLT pizza comes together in no time!
Another great option is this pizza sub recipe. Pizza subs made on store-bought sub bread are easy to do and can be customized for whatever you like most. I usually have my pizza subs loaded with cheese. My husband loves his loaded with pepperoni!
And don’t overlook this pepperoni pizza pinwheels recipe. Made with a refrigerated pizza dough, these pepperoni pizza pinwheels are easy to make and eat. You can dip them in pizza sauce or ranch dressing or enjoy them plain.
You can’t forget sweet treats when it comes to Super Bowl foods. Sweets are my favorite part of any gathering or event. I have a giant sweet tooth for sure! And these recipes are sure to satisfy your sweet cravings while still being easy to make and eat while watching the big game.
To kick off (see what I did there?!), you don’t get easier than this 2-ingredient butterscotch haystacks recipe. This is literally one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made. It comes together quickly, easily and isn’t messy. You can gobble up these treats with one hand!
These peanut butter honey nut cereal clusters are another great no-bake option for sweet treats that will be a hit. Whenever I make these, I make a double-batch because my family loves them. And I love that with just three ingredients of cereal, peanut butter and honey, they don’t have lots of added sugar.
As we start adding the number of ingredients, I’ve got two four-ingredient recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth without making you spend all day in the kitchen. First up is this four-ingredient whipped pudding pie recipe. You can make this in minutes (no baking required!) and stick it in the fridge. In fact, make it the day before! You can make it pretty much any flavor you can find a pudding mix in and you can make it sugar free as well. It doesn’t get much better than that!
The other awesome four-ingredient recipe is lemon squares. While this recipe does require baking, you can whip it up using a lemon cake mix, eggs and vegetable oil in just a few minutes. Sprinkle it with powdered sugar when it is baked and slice it up. This is another great recipe you can easily make ahead of time.
If you’re not inclined to use your oven, don’t miss out on this recipe for microwave fudge made five ways. My daughter started making these recipes when she was 11. Anybody can make them with flavors like chocolate, mint chocolate, brownie batter, cherry cordial and toffee bar!
For a light, airy sweet treat, try this mint chocolate mousse recipe. It also doesn’t require any cooking. In fact, it doesn’t even need the microwave. You simply mix together ingredients and have a tasty treat! If you like mint chocolate chip ice cream, you have got to try this easy-to-make alternative!
I can’t end a round up of Super Bowl foods without including some cookies. Cookies are the ultimate handheld dessert that are perfect for noshing. First up is my peanut butter cookie recipe. My husband, kiddos and dad claim this as one of their favorite cookies I make. You probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now. These cookies come together quickly and are so incredibly good with a bit of a crisp to the outside and a soft inside of peanut buttery goodness!
And then you’ve got to try this toffee cookie recipe. Of all the cookies I make, these are my most requested across the board. They are different from other cookies in flavor and are somehow both chewy and crunchy. They are the very best made with butter and not margarine, but either works.
Finally, if you just can’t decide what flavor of chocolate you want for your Super Bowl party, this white and milk chocolate chip cookie recipe is perfect for you. It has an optional ingredient of Cadbury eggs, which tend to show up in groceries stores around Super Bowl time. But they are scrumptious without the Cadbury eggs as well!
