How to Create a Superbowl Dessert Table

 

The Super Bowl is almost here! Celebrate the occasion with friends, family and plenty of great snacks.  It’s easy!

 

I love to entertain and can find just about any reason to host a party.  I aim to keep things simple, yet include special details that make an event memorable.  My favorite thing to create for parties is a dessert table.  It’s the centerpiece of any party and typically where you’ll find most of your guests gathered.  To celebrate the Super Bowl this year, I put together a classic football table filled with delicious treats.

In preparation for the big game, I headed to my nearest Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store to pick up a few supplies.  I alway look for items that can be re-used later for other parties, such as this chalkboard that made a perfect dessert table backdrop!  I simply drew a football “play” with a chalk pen and propped it up against the wall behind the desserts.

Next to the chalkboard, I displayed this fun letterboard that doubled not only as décor but also our party menu!  Both the letterboard and chalkboard can be re-used for later parties and events.

To brighten up the table, I crafted a football field runner made from Cricut paper, white tape and number stickers.  It was quick to create and added a pop of color on the table.

 

As for the actual desserts, I chose three of my favorites to make from scratch and added a bowl of football shaped pretzels to include something salty.  The first desserts on the menu were my signature sugar cookies.  Half were decorated as footballs and half as a field with a goal post.  Wilton makes the cutest mini football sprinkles which made the cookies even more realistic and their rainbow non-pareils were used to represent the football “fans”.

For the cupcakes, green buttercream icing was piped on as “grass” and the field goals and footballs were made from Wilton candy melts.   To make your own, simply microwave the candy melts at 30% power for 30 second increments.  When fully melted, fill disposable decorating bag with melted candy.  Draw goal posts and footballs on parchment or wax paper.  Let dry for 10 minutes.  When hardened, place on top of cupcakes!

The last dessert is a classic in our house.  Football peanut butter cracker cookies!  These are easy to make with ingredients you may already have in your pantry.  All you need is: peanut butter, ritz crackers and Wilton candy melts in chocolate and white.  Simply sandwich a spoonful of peanut butter between two crackers and dip in melted candy.  Lay on parchment or wax paper to dry.  Once dry, draw football laces on with white melted candy.

 

If you’d like to color coordinate your party with colors that represent the teams playing in the Super Bowl, it’s easy to swap out the Wilton candy melt colors for your team’s color.
