These Gluten Free Wasabi Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders are the adult version and they’re the perfect addition to your game days snacks.They’re crunchy, protein packed, perfect for dipping in alllll the sauces (looking at you honey mustard).

Guacamole is a nonnegotiable when it comes to your spread of Super Bowl recipes. This skinny guacamole is made with greek yogurt for a protein packed punch that adds a little extra tang and creaminess to your traditional guacamole. Plus, it means you can use less avocados, so it’s a little cheaper to make too! $$$
Pizza is the ultimate game day snack recipe and this 30 minute pizza crust comes together for a crazy good homemade pizza in record time. Top with your favorite toppings, or let your guests make their own pizza for a fun activity during halftime (or a lull in the game day). Serve it up hot and enjoy all the cheesy goodness!
Name a better duo than pretzel bites with cheddar beer dip. You simply can’t. These pretzels bites are seasoned with everything bagel seasoning for an extra crunchy, salty kick. Dip those bad boys in a homemade cheese sauce and you’re in heaven.
What’s better than spinach artichoke dip? Spinach Artichoke Pizza. It’s creamy, it’s cheesy, it’s unique, and it’s a huge crowd pleaser. People love pizza. People love spinach artichoke dip. Why not marry the two together in the best wedding of 2020 so far 🙂
You can’t go wrong with hummus. Serve it up in your super bowl appetizer spread with tons of fresh veggies and some toasted pita for a healthier option amongst all the chicken wings. It comes together in seconds and it goes without saying that fresh, homemade hummus is wayyyyy better than any store bought brand.

Thanks to nutritional yeast, cashews, and the perfect blend of smoky spice, this tastes as good as–NAY BETTER–than real queso. Serve it up with some crunchy chip, drizzled over chili cheese dogs, or tacos!
Game Day Dessert Recipes
Now let’s get to super bowl desserts AKA the perfect complement to all those salty, crunchy carbs we just talked about.
13. Sugar Cookies
Ahh sugar cookies. They’re chewy, buttery, soft, crunchy on the outside, gooey in the middle, and festive for any occasion! Whip up a batch of sugar cookies and decorate them in your teams colors for a fun activity!

Another crazy easy dessert option is circus bark AKA saltine toffee bark topped with caramel corner, marshmallows, AND chocolate. It takes all the best salty sweet desserts into one easily inhaled dessert bark.
And it looks super cute.
16. S’mores Cookies
Pretty much everyone loves chocolate chip cookies. And, most people also like s’mores. These two classic desserts collided into the most beautiful cookie of all time: s’mores cookies. AKA browned butter chocolate chip cookies studded with chocolate chips and graham cracker pieces and stuffed with marshmallows. They are all I will be eating on Super Bowl Sunday.
Okay so you get it by now: barks are the ultimate game day dessert. They’re easy to make, keep for long periods of time, and are the ultimate snackable dessert recipe. This peanut butter saltine toffee bark is made with just a few ingredients and is the perfect thing to munch on while watching the big game!
Cookie bars are the best for entertaining because they come together as quickly as cookies, but bake all at once, meaning you cut out all that time of scooping out individual cookies and waiting for each batch to bake. Plus these brown butter nutella cookie bars literally broke the internet when they were first published.
They’re basically the Kim Kardashian of the blog and with good reason. Brown butter chocolate chip cookie bars with fat swirls of nutella and toasted hazelnuts.
These vegan peanut butter chocolate squares only require a handful of ingredients, are no bake, and are secretly kind of healthy. They’re one of those recipes that everyone will ask you for, and are simply scrumptious.
But they are very addicting. Consider yourself warned.

I grew up with a cosmic brownie in my lunch every day, and quite frankly I miss it. These homemade cosmic brownies taste just like the Little Debbie’s version without any of the preservatives.
Made with just 3 ingredients, these Oreo Truffles are easy, cheap, and seriously snack-able. Top them with sprinkles in your teams colors for some extra festive pizzaz, or leave as is!

Is there anything better than a rich fudgy brownie? N0. N0, there is not. This perfect brownie recipe puts all other brownies to shame. It’s cakey AND fudgy and will satisfy all your chocolate cravings. Perfect for celebrating a win…or consoling the losers.
I think we can all agree that rice krispie treats are the ultimate easy, delicious, crowd pleasing dessert they claim to be. Anyone can make them, and everyone enjoys them. Take your rice krispie treats to the next level with these s’mores rice krispie treats, complete with a torched, toasted marshmallow top.
Who need a campfire anyway?
Okay so these massive, gooey, chocolate chip cookies are def not bite sized, but damn they’re good. Plus you can’t go wrong with a classic chocolate chip cookie and game day in my opinion.
