Fun Pick-Up Desserts for Super Bowl

Print Post

It’s Thursday before Super Bowl and you’ve probably seen so many versions of buffalo chicken dip that your head is about to explode with hot sauce.  I love the traditional salty/creamy/fried/cheesy items as much as the next person, but it doesn’t mean that we can forget about dessert.  So for those of you looking for some fun pick-up desserts to add to the mix, here are some of my favorite less traditional ideas.

Bite Sized Chocolate Chip Cookies with Mocha Ganache A football game is the perfect excuse for delicious bite-sized cookie sandwiches

Blueberry Pretzel Clusters Three ingredients and probably five minutes to make, what’s not to love?

Chewy Chocolate Covered Pretzel Bars These are one of the easiest things to make and they will please any sweet and salty lover; no fancy baking skills required

Double Chocolate Mint Crispy Treats These were a huge hit at my sister-in-law’s shower; another super easy recipe

Grown Up S’mores Cookies Even the biggest chip and dip lover can’t resist

Individual Peanut Butter Cheesecakes, lightened up You can still enjoy cheesecake at the super bowl with these individual treats

Individual S’mores Brownies You might want to make a double batch

Kitchen Sink Cookies and Bars Throw in whatever ingredients you feel like, even the leftover broken pieces of potato chips and pretzels will work

Oreo Mallow Clusters Substitute the peeps with regular marshmallows for these super easy chocolate treats

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Pretzel Pops These are actually a little bit healthy, really!

Pumpkin Pie Cookie Dough Truffle Pops I may or may not have eaten a few of these out of the freezer the other night

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Toffee Bars 19a

Thick and Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate and Toffee Bars I can’t wait to have an excuse to make these again

Now can someone please tell my body that calories don’t count during the Super Bowl?

    OOh my goodness, these look like perfect super bowl treats! I’m loving the chocolate and pretzel theme, can’t go wrong! We posted a similar recipe today. :) Hope you have a great time!

    Ohh, yay for a sweet roundup! I’ve been noticing a decline in my bookmarking recently–dips, I can take ‘em or leave ‘em. Traditional Super Bowl food is just not my speed!

    Watching all that football has to burn some calories, right?

      Now that is a seriously good point!

    Dear Lauren,
    Calories don’t count during the Super Bowl?
    Eat away!

      Nope, that was all I needed! ;-)

    Calories do not count during the Superbowl! And if they’re small treats, they totally don’t count ;)

    • KeepItSweet February 3, 2012 at 1:55 pm #

      Ok, then we are set:-)

  11. Maggie @ Kitchie Coo February 2, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    wow everything sounds perfect!!! I would love to make the grown up smores

  19. Maureen February 3, 2012 at 2:01 am #

    Love these! Nothing cheese me off than “finger food” that needs a plate, a fork and a napkin. These are perfect!

    • KeepItSweet February 3, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

      I completely agree!

  20. joanne February 3, 2012 at 8:05 am #

    Tradition seems overrated when you’re staring these desserts straight in the face. So do WW points. Who needs em anyway?

    • KeepItSweet February 3, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

      Seriously, I could do without most of the time!

  21. Caroline @ chocolate & carrots February 3, 2012 at 8:21 am #

    I love this round up! I’d rather eat a bunch of dessert appetizers than savory for the super bowl! ;-) Yum!

  22. Carolyn February 3, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    Great sweet treat SuperBowl round up. Oh I am SO hungry now!

  23. DessertForTwo February 3, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

    Where do I click to order all these? I’d like them delivered Sunday morning, please? ;)

    • KeepItSweet February 3, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

      Let me see what I can get through security and I’ll be right on my way!

  24. Krissy's Creations February 3, 2012 at 5:05 pm #

    Great list of desserts!!!

  25. Emily @ Life on Food February 4, 2012 at 2:36 pm #

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for this post. I love all of the dips and appetizers out there but I need the sweets! They have not gotten their due recognition this week at all.
