Chicken Wings with Buffalo Sauce
When it comes to game day finger foods and snacks, chicken wings are our top pick. Chicken wings are extremely versatile, and part of that is being able to coat them in whatever tasty sauce you like. Buffalo wings are a classic choice, and they’re easier to make than you’d think.
For the buffalo sauce, just mix some Frank’s RedHot pepper sauce into some warm, melted butter, and ta-da! You’ve got buffalo sauce. Toss the wings in the sauce, or keep it on the side for dipping. For a unique take on chicken wings, try this recipe for baked brown sugar chicken wings with roasted red pepper sauce.
Super Loaded Nachos
Nachos are another classic game day snack. They're perfect for sharing and allow for plenty of variety. The best nachos usually involve layers of rich, melty cheese or cheese sauce, with a combo of other add-ons like beans, meat, salsa, or chopped veggies. Here’s an easy recipe for loaded nachos that feature a little bit of everything. If you prefer cheese sauce on nachos over shredded cheese, try this recipe for Super Nachos instead.
Classic Queso Dip
Like nachos, Queso Dip fulfills the same craving for delicious cheese-covered chips, except without all the layering. The easiest way to make a classic queso dip is to melt a block of Velveeta cheese and mix in a can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles.
Use a slow cooker or cast iron pot to keep the queso warm while you enjoy the Super Bowl. To spice up this classic queso dip, brown a pound of spicy pork sausage in a skillet and add it to the queso for a Tex Mex Queso Dip instead.
Easy Potato Skins
While the players are chasing pig skins, you can be chowing down on some Potato Skins at home. This pub comfort food is actually pretty easy to make. Get a couple pounds of smaller russet potatoes and bake them in the oven until crispy.
Slice each one in half, scoop out the flesh in the center, and fill it with cheese and bacon before popping it back under the broiler. Toss on any other toppings you like afterward, such as sour cream or chives. Don’t take our word for it, though. Here’s an Easy Potato Skin recipe that you can follow.
Okay, so baked goods aren’t usually the first thing to come to mind when you think of 'easy' Super Bowl snacks. Hear us out, though. If you’re ok with pre-made cookie dough from the grocery store, then you can consider most cookie recipes to be halfway finished! Just grab some cookie dough, roll it out, and cut it into the shape of footballs.
If you can find a football cookie cutter, even better. Bake the cookies, wait for them to cool, then slap on some brown and white icing to make them look like little footballs. Easy, right? Or, you can follow this recipe for Chocolate Football Cookies instead, if you prefer a homemade cookie dough option.
