Today is the BIG day all you Beyonce and Coldplay fans! By the way, I am going to go ahead and call it now… Beyonce uses this moment to announce she is preggers again. Rumor has it she is. Let’s see if I am right.
No, no, who am I kidding… it is all you Little Monsters grand moment / evening when Mamma Monster sings the great National Anthem. Should we gamble? A subtly dressed Lady GaGa or do we think she will come out with a dress made of chicken wings (ya know – the official game day food)?
Maybe the BIG day is solely excitement centered around commercials (I fall into this category). While everyone is shushing during game time, and jumping up to refill their plates or hit the bathroom during the commercials breaks, I am the complete opposite, “Sit down you are blocking the TV.” or “Are you kidding me, Budweiser went with Clydesdales again!?” (Just kidding… we all know they have to, come on!)
Or, maybe it is all about the food (again, my category). It is a night of vegging out and eating junk (okay, healthy eaters quit reading now).
Since, I never even mentioned football, you get where my mind is this evening. If I am disinterested in the two teams, then I tend to not really care what happens during those four quarters.
However, as a former cheerleader and in the great spirit of the game and competition, I will play along and I will make corny “football” themed food.
SUPER BOWL GAME DAY DESSERT:
- 1 Bag of Pretzel
- 2 Bags of Rolo’s
- M&M’s and Reese’s Pieces
Unwrap the Rolo’s (most tedious part of whole recipe). Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line the baking sheet with pretzel squares, top each with a Rolo and bake for 5 minutes. Just enough time for the Rolo to start to melt. By melt I mean when you place the M&M or Reese’s Pieces, they push down, smashing the Rolo without all the caramel spilling out. I always pop the baking sheet in the freezer for about 3-5 minutes to stop the melting.
You can use this recipe for any event. Pink and Red candies for Valentine’s Day, Green M&M’s for St. Patrick’s Day, you get my point.
I themed tonight’s dessert Broncos vs the Panthers. They are playing right?
Have a great Super Bowl, Friends! May the best commercial, I mean team, win!
