Superbowl Food

I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, but even more important is the FOOD!
We didn't do anything elaborate this year but we did have some delicious treats to eat. I did all of the cooking, but asked Dave to help out with some chopping since his knife skills are far superior to mine. I had to laugh when I saw how he chopped the fruit and celery. He got a little stress relief in by taking himself back to culinary school.

Crock Pot Three Bean Chili
adapted from Skinny Taste
I follow her recipe, but use beef and add an extra can of chickpeas and 1 tbl. cumin.

Sausage Balls
adapted from Betty Crocker
I double the meat and add extra cheese and herbs.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
from a friend
2-3 chicken breasts
2 blocks cream cheese
Hot Sauce (to taste - we use 2oz)
Blue Cheese Crumbles or Ranch Dressing (to taste)
Shredded Cheddar
Chopped Green Onions

Poach and shred chicken breasts.
Soften cream cheese and spread in the bottom of a baking dish.
Top with shredded chicken, hot sauce, blue cheese crumbles or ranch, and shredded cheddar.
Bake in a 350 degree oven until cheese melts and ingredients meld together.
Top with green onions and serve with tostitos scoops.

Marshmallow Fruit Dip
from a friend
7 oz Marshmallow Fluff
8 oz cream cheese

Add ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix until combined, scraping bowl frequently.

Peanut Butter Yogurt Fruit Dip
from a friend
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
honey (to taste, I used about 2 tbl)

Add peanut butter and yogurt to a bowl and mix until combined. 
Taste and add honey until desired sweetness.

Peanut Butter Cookies
the ones I always make
1 large egg
1 cup sugar (we use brown sugar)
1 cup peanut butter (we use chunky)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Mix together eggs, sugar, baking soda, and vanilla.
Combine peanut butter until fully blended.
Drop by spoonfuls onto the parchment paper.
Optional add-ins: semi-sweet or white chocolate chips, raisins. (we use chocolate chips)
Optional toppers: sugar, m&ms, reeses pieces.

Double Chocolate Brownies
the original Toll House Recipe
If using gluten free flour - add 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
