Any excuse to get together and chow is a holiday, right?
If you are new here, be sure to check out the rest of my Super Bowl party ideas. Embrace the rabbit hole. Love the rabbit hole. Share the rabbit hole.
Super Bowl party food:
- BBQ meatballs
- Pre-cooked, covered in BBQ in a slow cooker.
- Turkey and cheese (pepperjack, provolone, cheddar) mini sandwiches
- Lunch meat and sliced cheese on buttered sweet rolls.
- Spinach and sausage dip
- Absolutely worth the extra steps because it can be made days in advance.
- Black cherry and cream soda
If you guys behave I will share the recipe just in time for Easter. Since Snickers is an Official Sponsor of Super Bowl 50, I am sharing my cookie recipe for team chocolate. They aren’t M&M’s cookies. The aren’t Snickers cookies. They aren’t peanut butter cookies. And they can’t be called caramel cookies. I had no idea what to call this hodge podge of sugary goodness, so they became known as trash can cookies. Not to be confused with garbage can. There’s a difference.
Trash can cookie recipe:
- 1 cup + 2 TBSP flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3.4oz box of vanilla pudding
Mix until blended and fluffy.
- 8 TBSP unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Beat on medium speed until well blended. Next, add and beat on medium speed until well combined:
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1.5 tsp vanilla
Stir in flour mix until smooth. Finally, add:
- 1/2 c caramels, cut into tiny pieces
- 1/2 c peanuts
- 1/2 c Snickers, cut into tiny pieces
- 1/2 c mini M&M’s
Drop the dough onto cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes, until the tops and edges are slightly brown. I recommend removing the cookies before they cool all of the way so the candy doesn’t stick to the cookie sheet. Ask me how I know to tell you this. Go ‘head, ask.

And the final touch is something I’m pretty pleased with. I wanted the food containers to match the football tower I made a few years ago, so I pulled out the glue gun and got to work.

That’s it! I think the extra 30 minutes (I made three.) improved the look of the table by leaps and bounds.
Now, if you didn’t think my Super Bowl party was worthy of a pin, I know you will find oodles of more football party ideas here.
Do yourself a favor and grab your Super Snacks Cartwheel offer (1/17/16-2/6/16) before your next trip. Saving money is a good thing. It’s how I justify the adorable coral blanket resting on the back of my chair. And the clothespins adorned with the cutest Valentine’s Day details. And the…
You know how this ends.
