Are you hosting a football party or maybe a Super Bowl Party?  My son was having a Football Party, but I did not want to spend a bunch on decorations.  But at the same time I wanted it to look fun and festive.  I decided to make fun, low cost football serving containers for the chips out of a brown paper lunch sack.  At first I just dumped the chips right in the bag… but that left grease spots all over them.  I found it works best to keep the chips in their normal bag, and fold the top down or cut it off.  Then use the brown paper bag as the outer shell.

A bag of chips has a LOT of air in it, so I bought medium size bag of chips and it filled up the small (standard) lunch sack just perfect.  Start out by taking the flat, brown bag and drawing on the black laces of the football.  I did mine with a sharpie marker.  Open up your bag and  then fold down the top a few times to create a “bowl” out of your bag. Put your opened bag of chips inside, cut off the top of the bag or roll it down so it will not show.  You can use Football Stickers  and Craft Twine to decorate the bag too.  Clean up is super easy, just toss the bag in the trash and you are done :)

Cheesy Chip Dip Recipe,  Oven baked chip dip, The Easiest Cheesy Chip Dip You will ever make, #ChipDip, #Cheese, #DipCheesy Chip Dip

If you like a good chip dip then this is a recipe you have got to try.  I had it for the first time about 15 years ago, it was a cold winter day we were getting together for a craft night with my cousins.  She pulled this hot bubbly chip dip out of the oven and we pretty much licked the pan clean… it was that good.  I told her I would love the recipe.  I was SHOCKED to find out how easy it was! I have been making it for social event ever since, and it is always a hit!

You will need

  • 1 80z brick of cream cheese
  • 1 can of Chili 15-19 oz(with NO beans) you just want meat and sauce
  • 2 cups grated Mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Corn chips to eat it with

In the bottom of a 9×9 pan spread the cream cheese in an even layer.  I use the back of a spoon, or just get my hand wet (prevents the cream cheese from sticking to it) and press into  an even layer.  Next open your can of NO BEAN chili spread in an even layer, top with grated cheese.

Put into  an 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or till cheese is totally melted and edges of the dip are bubbly. Take out of oven, sprinkle on the cilantro and green onions.  Serve with corn chips and watch it disappear :)

Symphony Toffee Candy Bar Brownie Recipes, easy ways to jazz up a plain brownie recipe, super bowl food, football foodI am not sure why I have never thought of this before…. but this weekend I decided to combine two of my favorite things.  Brownies and Symphony  Candy Bars…. combined as one AMAZING dessert.  The toffee and almond bits mixed with the chocolate  make the brownies rich and more like a gourmet dessert.

Did I mention I just used a box brownie mix…. I made it like normal, but then I chopped a GIANT sized Symphony bar and added the chunks to the batter.  Bake it according to the box directions, serve it up and I promise everyone will be asking you for your recipe.  It is almost embarrassing when you tell people how EASY they are to make.


This is my favorite pan to cook brownies in Wilton 2105-0454 Brownie Bar Pan, makes them all have that chewy crust and soft gooey middle.

These would make great Game Day Snacks if you are having a Football or Super Bowl Party.

1/2 cup water, lukewarm
1/2 cup + 2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup milk, lukewarm
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 egg, room temperature
2 tsp salt
4 cups all-purpose flour

For the Apple Pie Filling:
5-6 Medium Apples, peeled and chopped
2 Ttbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Cornstarch
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
Salt
2 cups Water
4 tbsp Butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp ground cinnamon

For the Icing (Optional):
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll recipe, #Apples, #Breads, #Desserts, #CinnamonRollsDirections:

In a small bowl, stir together the yeast, water and 2 tsp sugar and let it sit until it foams up, about 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl add the milk, melted butter, egg, sugar, and salt and mix until well combined.
Add about half of the flour and mix until smooth then mix in the yeast mixture.
Slowly add the remaining flour until combined, if using a mixer you will have to switch to using your hands or a wooden spoon.
Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes.
Put dough into a greased bowl, cover with a tea towel, and set aside to allow the dough to rise, about 2 hours.
Meanwhile Toss the apples in a large bowl with lemon juice to keep them from browning and set aside.
Pour cornstarch into a large saucepan and slowly whisk in water to prevent the cornstarch from getting lumpy.
Mix in the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
Allow to come to a hard boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Add the apples and bring back to a boil then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes or until apples soften to the desired texture.
Remove from heat and set aside.
When dough has risen punch the dough down and remove from the bowl.
Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface into roughly a 16×24 inch rectangle
Spread the softened butter over the dough.
Mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle evenly across the butter.
Spread the apple mixture over top of the the brown sugar.
Roll into a log, starting lengthwise; the log should end up approximately 24 inches long.
Slice evenly to create the seperate rolls.
Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper and place the cinnamon rolls in the pan, making sure they are not touching.
Cover with a clean dish towel and allow the dough to double again, about 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375?F.
Bake the rolls for about 22-25 minutes.
If a glaze is desired, mix powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together with a whisk.
Drizzle the glaze over top of the cinnamon rolls and serve.Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll recipe, #Apples, #Breads, #Desserts, #CinnamonRolls
