Superbowl Sunday is only a few weeks away! If you’re like us and hosting a handful of hungry men to watch the big game, you’ll want to make sure they’ve got plenty to feast. This includes my Snickers Brownie Batter Football Dip. This one is yummy chocolatey goodness. Simple to make with store-bought brownie mix and some other ingredients. I’m going to be serving this one up with some pretzels and graham cracker sticks. Who doesn’t LOVE a great chocolate dessert that’s easy to make and shaped in a football?! It will be the talk of your small gathering!
Now, I’m not a huge football fan. But I love entertaining and definitely love to cook and bake. So I’ll let the boys watch football and I’ll keep them well fed. Because if they leave this house hungry, there’s something wrong with them! I’ll come back and join the excitement during all of the really outrageous Superbowl commercials! Cannot wait to see them! Grab a big bowl of my Thick and Hearty Homestyle Chili and get your game day going! These two recipes will keep pretty much anyone happily fed. What are your favorite things to make for your football game watching?!
Here’s a few recipes I created for Food Lion that would be amazing for Game day! Like my Philly Cheese Steaks, Football Shaped Oreo Truffles, and Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches! I hope you try these recipes and more!
Brownie Batter Football Dip
- 1 18-19-ounce brownie mix
- 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, softened
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
- 1 sleeve graham crackers crumbs
- 16-18 miniature Snickers bars
- store bought vanilla frosting
- 1 package graham cracker dippers
- 1 bag pretzels
- chocolate sprinkles or crushed Oreo cookies
- Chocolate Ganache:
- 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3-4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
In a double boiler, over low heat, melt together the chocolate chips, butter and heavy whipping cream. Once it starts to melt, stir until smooth. Turn off the heat and let sit on the stove until you are ready to use it.
In a large mixing bowl, using either an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, beat together the brownie mix, butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the marshmallow fluff. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl occasionally. Cut the snickers bars into little pieces and toss into the mixture. Folding them in.
Spread the mixture out on a parchment lined half sheet pan. Shape it into a football shape, using your hands. Cover with chocolate ganache, spread with a rubber spatula or butter knife. Coat it generously with chocolate sprinkles. Let it set up for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Make football laces with either vanilla frosting. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until you wish to serve.
Place the football in the center of a serving platter, garnish with graham crackers dippers and pretzels for dipping.
