Plan the ultimate Superbowl party

Anytime sports come on TV I promptly find something else to do besides watching it, and I have always been like that. With the exception of the Superbowl of course, but then again I really only watched for the commercials. That is until last year, when I realized that the commercials really weren’t that great and I could always watch them online later. So whenever John brought up the idea of having a Superbowl party this year here I kind of dismissed it, that is until he got invited to go to his friends Superbowl party and I started digging on Pinterest for Superbowl themed dessert ideas that I could make for John and Ethan to take to the party… now I want to make all of the Superbowl themed goodies!

Dang you Pinterest!

Since now I am dyeing to plan a Superbowl themed party, so Im going to live through my blog here a minute and plan the perfect pretend Superbowl party. Feel free to snag any ideas that I share!

Starting with these delicious Baked buffalo wings or these Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce because a party with just one type of wings isn’t a party at all!

Of course dip is also needed, lots of dip too. Like these Avocado Spinich dip, Taco dip or this Creamy rotel dip.

Then comes the other goodies like Puff pastry jalapeño poppers, Toasted ravioli, and this ridiculously delicious looking Slow cooker honey garlic chicken.

Being the sugar addict that I am I would also need some sweet goodies too like these  Chocolate football cupcakes and these Cinnamon and sugar candied nuts.

Now a Superbowl party wouldn’t be a party without some awesome decor! I found a ton of really great decorations so I had to pick just my very favorites like these: DIY football field, Paper chain decoration and more!

Money saving no bake granola bars

Lately the kids have gotten super picky about which foods they will eat for snacks. Among that small list of foods is granola bars, unfortunately these get expensive very whenever five of us are eating these daily. So I decided to make some of my own in an effort to save some money and to eliminate some of those unknown ingredients in the prepackaged bars. Whenever I made these granola bars I split the batch in half and made one batch of plain oatmeals and one with small white chocolate chips. Unfortunately the ones with white chocolate chips were not camera friendly (i.e. fugly), so behold the plain no bake granola bars that were ready to devour in no time!
no bake granola recipe4 Cups quick cooking oats
2 Cups rice crispy cereal
1 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup shredded coconut
1/2 Cup butter
1/2 Cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl mix together your oats, coconut and cereal and set aside.

Put your butter, cinnamon, salt and brown sugar in a small pot and bring to a boil. Once your mixture comes to a boil set a time for 2 minutes and reduce heat so it doesn’t overcook make sure that it continues to boil though.

Line two medium sized pans with wax paper. Set aside any addition add ins that you would like to have in your granola bars (nuts, raisins, chocolate etc).

Pour your mixture over your mixture of oats and stir like crazy to get all of the oats covered.

Add your desired mix in, or enjoy plain like we did.

Pour the mixture into your lined pans and press mixture firmly so that all of the oats will stick together. If you do not press these together enough the bars will be weak and will fall apart all over you whenever you try to eat them!

Put your pans into the fridge for 25 minutes to set. Cut these into squares and enjoy!

No bake granola bars

Like I said we tried adding white chocolate and it was delicious, but next time we are trying almonds and raisins.

I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine did!
