Super Bowl Sunday’s around the corner, y’all! This year definitely looks a little different than last, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still give the big game a little fanfare. Kyle and I will probably watch it with a friend or two, so while our “party” will be a little more intimate than previous years’, it’ll still be fun to hang out and eat some fun football-themed snacks together. That said, it’s no secret that I love platters and boards, so I thought it’d be fun to put together a game day snack board in today’s post! Instead of a traditional charcuterie board, I tried to create a football field (kind of?) with veggies and finger foods, and I love the way it turned out. Keep reading for some simple tips on how to assemble your own!
Game Day Snack Board
One of my favorite things about this Superbowl party platter is that it’s both healthy and cheap! It’s super easy to put together, too, and 95% of it can be prepared well in advance. Here’s everything I used to make mine–
- Wax paper– Before adding any snacks, I cut a football shape out of wax paper and placed it in the middle of the board as a reference. Highly recommend doing the same if you want the football to hold its shape!
- Chex Mix– I used basic Chex Mix for the bulk of the football. It’s cheap, delicious, and the perfect shade(s) of brown! If you want to go the healthier route, nuts (almonds, peanuts, pecans, etc) are a great alternative.
- Totino’s Pizza Rolls– I used some pizza rolls for the center of the football and to fill two corners of the board. My thought was that the corners would look like “bleachers,” but when that didn’t happen, I just figured who doesn’t love pizza rolls??
- String cheese– I sliced two pieces of string cheese in half longways (and then cut one of those in half longways) and then layered them to create football laces!
- Green veggies– Use a variety of fresh green veggies to create the football field! I used broccoli, celery, cucumber, snap peas, and green peppers on mine, but pickles, asparagus, and green olives would work well, too. Note: giant dipping bowl of ranch not pictured.
- Green fruits– I ended up only buying green grapes, but apples and kiwi slices are also great for filling in the field.
Another fun way to change up this football snack board entirely is by switching to a nacho theme! You can use chips (or french fries!) smothered in refried beans or pulled chicken/pork for the football, sour cream for the laces, and jalapenos, cilantro, guac, and/or salsa verde to make up the field. Yum, right?! I know what I’m making next year!
I also made some cute little game day tidbit plates and stadium cups with my Cricut! Stay tuned for the super simple tutorials.
What else would you add to your Super Bowl snack board? If you can think of any other green and/or brown snack suggestions, I’d love to hear them! Also, if you need more game day snack recipes, give this baked pimento cheese dip a try. It’s seriously to die for!
