Are you hosting this year’s Super Bowl party? It’s time to get inspired. Now that you have the decorations, it’s time to focus on the menu. Why not opt for a fourth quarter dessert table with these fantastic football-themed desserts? One sure bet you can make this Super Bowl is that your party will be a hit!

1. Chocolate Dipped Football Pretzels

Have a little fun in the kitchen with these chocolate dipped pretzels. Melt your chocolate, then dip your pretzels into the chocolate. Shake off any excess drips, and place on a sheet of wax paper to harden. Melt your white candy melts in a squeeze bottle and draw the laces on once the pretzels have hardened. If you’re worried about allergies, use regular pretzels and milk chocolate. Make two bowls of this tasty treat if you opt for a kid’s table.
