4 Super Bowl Super Snack Ideas
It’s here- The Super Bowl! Maybe you have a party planned, maybe you are scheduled to bring a snack to someone else’s party or maybe you are not a football junkie at all. Regardless, it’s always handy to have snack ideas for a crowd in your back pocket. Mostly because you never know when you’ll need to spring into action with easy but delicious party food.
The super awesome thing about pecans is they can replace more refined products, but naturally enhance the recipe flavors without compromising the texture or integrity of the recipe. So if you’re up for super-fying your snacks and appetizers, you’re going to love these ideas!
1. Mac and Cheese Bites (So easy the kiddos can help!)
This recipe is very simple and perfect for entertaining all ages. The original recipe calls for buttered breadcrumbs. Instead of using the same old same old, substitute farm fresh pecan meal for the bread crumbs. When substituting, you can omit the butter. Pecan meal already contains natural essential oils that work to enhance recipe flavors while baking.
2. Spicy Cheddar Cheese Football
A party isn’t complete without lots of dips. Cheese balls are great for veggies, chips, crackers and any other dip-able goodies. This cheese ball is especially savory and perfect for your football fans. Farm fresh small pecan pieces work perfectly for this recipe. No need to add a chop step when you can get them already perfectly size for your recipe. Feel free to add the cranberries for an added layer of flavor or just pack on more nuts!
3. Tres Pepper Roasted Pecans
Roasted pecans are the bomb-diggity of snacks. Have them by the handful, pair them with your favorite veggies or toss them into some popcorn. Whatever way you choose, these little guys are sure to please even the toughest of football fans! This recipe works really nicely with farm fresh Native pecan halves (if you are planning on tossing in with another snack mix) and farm fresh Pawnee pecan halves (if you are planning on serving solo).
4. Pecan Spinach Artichoke Dip
Add color, texture and flavor to your spinach artichoke dip with pecans. This recipe is an awesome spin on an entertaining classic. And once you try it with pecans, you’ll have a hard time making it any other way. This recipe works really nicely with farm fresh large pecan pieces.
Regardless of what team you are routing for this year, these snacks are sure to make every moment memorable, win or lose. Gather together with your favorite people and make the Super Bowl more memorable with these super snacks.
