The Perfect Super Bowl Party

Are you ready for some football?  Today I shared some easy ways for you to throw the perfect Super Bowl Party with Page Crawford on WNCN Today.  The best part?  None of my tips require advanced cooking skills or the world’s largest cold cut stadium ;-)

     Fun for Kids of all Ages.

DIY Penalty Flag

o   DIY Penalty Flags.  If you have young guests at your party or animated grownups, the perfect way to get everyone involved in the game is with a few DIY Penalty Flags for them to toss each time there’s a call to be made (or the wrong call was made!). 
DIY Penalty Flags
-  1 yellow napkin
-  1 practice golf ball
-  1 rubber band
Unfold the napkin and place your practice golf ball in the center.  Draw up each corner of the napkin tightly around the golf ball (the corners of the napkin will look like a long tail).  Wrap your rubber band around the golf ball 2-3 times and you’re done!  TIP: You can also use a ping-pong ball or small bouncy ball.  Just be sure not to use a hard ball that may do some damage :-)

     Deliciously Easy Super Bowl Snacks.

Corndog Bites

o   Corndog Bites.  Making these bite size corndog bites couldn’t be easier, even for those of you who don’t know your way around the kitchen and they will be a hit with all of your guests.
Corndog Bites
-  1 box cornbread mix
-  5 hotdogs cut into bite size pieces
Prepare cornbread mix as normal, stir in hotdog pieces, spoon into mini muffin tin and bake as directed.  Serve with ketchup and mustard.

Football Deviled Eggs

o   Deviled Football Eggs.  Turn your favorite deviled eggs into mini footballs.  Simply add small strips of green onions to the top of each egg to make football laces.

Milano Football Cookies

o   Football Cookies.  Everyone loves Milanos, but have you ever thought of them as the perfect Super Bowl Party food, probably not.  But, with a little melted chocolate or brown cake gel you can turn a Milano into a football.  Simply melt chocolate in a microwave safe dish, thentransfer to a ziptop bag.  Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe laces on the top of each cookie.

And of course you can't forget my favorite Super Bowl centerpiece, the Beer Can Cake!

Until next time,
