Best Super Bowl Recipes

Dips, hot finger food appetizers, and desserts – here are the best Super Bowl recipes for a perfect party!

In case you live under a rock (or not in the U.S.), the Super Bowl is next weekend.  Whether or not you actually care about football or the outcome of the game, Super Bowl parties are wildly popular.

I’ve shared 4 new Super Bowl party recipes this week, but now it’s time for a roundup from the archives.  Let me help you throw the best Super Bowl party on the block with a roundup of my favorite party-friendly foods on Bunsen Burner Bakery!  Appetizers, dips, finger-friendly hearty foods, and desserts – I have you covered!

Dips, hot finger food appetizers, and desserts - here are the best Super Bowl recipes for a perfect party!

Here’s my requirements for the best Super Bowl recipes (or any party food):

  1. Easy to prep ahead of time – whether it’s the whole dish, or part of the dish, I want to get as much done the day before or morning of the party.
  2. Easy to eat one handed.  This isn’t a formal sit-down dinner party; your guests will be walking back and forth to the food and crowding around the TV.  The only utensils necessary should be those used to spoon the dip onto a plate!
  3. Paper plate friendly.  In other words, no soups, nothing runny enough to leak through a plate, and most definitely nothing requiring a knife!
  4. Options for all diets.  Throwing a party?  Make sure you have at least one or two options for friends who might not eat gluten, vegetarians, those who steer clear of typical junk food, etc.  Ensuring everyone has a good time and good food is part of being a great host(ess).
  5. Freezer friendly.  This one isn’t a requirement so much as a preference, but if you have leftovers, you probably don’t want to eat the same party foods for the next week.  Things which you can freeze for a later date solve this problem.

So here we go: a few of the best Super Bowl recipes that fit into my party requirements!
