Desserts Perfect For The Superbowl

If you know me at all, you know I love themed parties and the Superbowl isn’t any different! Every year we go to a family Superbowl party and I always bring football-themed desserts. I haven’t decided what I am bringing this year but I can guarantee you it will be delicious and football-themed! Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@blazersandbluejeans) to see what I end up making. Check out my football desserts through the years and some really cool Superbowl dessert ideas I’ve found!

In 2016 I made jersey and football rice krispie treats. These were a little more time consuming because I decorated the jerseys to look like the actual football jerseys for each of the teams.

To make the jerseys, I simply used this cookie cutter when I was shaping the rice krispie treats. It is much easier to do it that way when the marshmallows are warm rather than pressing them into a sheet and using the cookie cutter to cut them out. You could also use this cookie cutter for the footballs rather than free shaping them or this set if you want all the football themed cookie cutters.

In 2017, I couldn’t decide what to make so I went a little overboard. I made royal icing sugar cookies decorated as football plays and the football field, chocolate covered strawberries that looked like footballs and football-shaped brownies.

Last year I made rice krispie treats shaped as football fields, which were super easy by the way. Along with some yummy buttercream iced football cookies.

For the football cookies I followed Jenny Cookies recipe and technique. Buttercream is much easier to work with if you’re new to cookie decorating so I recommend that over royal icing.

Here are some of my favorite baking tools that I use in my own kitchen!

I am not a hundred percent sure what kind of football themed desserts I am going to make this year but here are some really cool ideas I have found!
