Super Bowl Goodies

I can't believe the Super Bowl is already coming up in 5 days! Seriously, how is it already 2012, and how is January over?! Neither of the teams I was rooting for made it.. RIP Saints and Broncos.. and H's Chiefs didn't even make it to the playoffs. But we will be rooting for the G-Men on Sunday since I like Eli and we're both Yankees fans.. it's only appropriate to root for their football counterpart. 

Anyone have big plans for Sunday? We are going to go to a party where all the girls bring their favorite dip and all the guys bring their favorite drink. This way the hostess won't be overwhelmed with preparing tons of food and supplying all the drinks. I thought that was a great idea! I was going to bring my famous buffalo chicken dip, but since there are so many other savory dips accounted for already and nothing sweet, I decided I'll try out a cookie dough dip I found on Pinterest. Oh Pinterest.. how I love thee! 

1 eight oz. package of cream cheese (softened) -- I'll use reduced fat or fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup of butter (softened)
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla
1 cup of chocolate chips

Cream together the cream cheese and butter
Add all remaining ingredients and mix well until combined
Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers, pretzels, and/or apple wedges

I'm excited to try this out! I've heard great things about this dip! 

What do you plan on making for Super Bowl Sunday? 

You can find my buffalo chicken dip recipe here. Every party I bring this dip to, the whole pan is demolished! I got the recipe from a friend a few years ago, and have re-gifted it to so many people I've lost count. It is definitely a crowd pleaser! H and I are finally throwing a housewarming party in a few weeks, and when I told him I was starting to put together my menu and wanted his input, all he requested was buffalo dip :-P


  1. I am fascinated by the idea of this dip...I can't decide if it looks amazing or nauseating (or both...they are definitely not mutually exclusive.) Be sure to update on how it turns out!

  2. I made this from Pinterest too. It's amazing. It's so good I've eaten it until my belly hurts both times I made it. In my opinion it tastes best with apples. Oh now I want some... :-)

  3. ohhhhh this looks good! I think you've inspired to me make nothing but appetizers and dessert for the super bowl, since our plans are to simply relax at home!

  4. I can totally see myself eating this until my stomach hurts as well! Thankfully, I'll be bringing it to a party so I'll have to restrain myself in front of others :-P

    I'll definitely come back and post on how it turned out.

    Alise, those are the best superbowl foods! There are some amazing looking dips floating around on Pinterest. I want to try them all!
