It's the Superbowl this Sunday, which happens to be one of the best days of the year for snacks! I mean, the football is ok, the commercials are good, but it's the food that keeps me excited. For this year's Superbowl party, I've decided to have a SNACK-OFF. Which team will have the better snacks? I'm bringing you two dishes inspired by the fair of the state that the team represents.
In one corner, with have the Broncos. Colorado is known for its beers, and one of my personal favorites, New Belgium beer, calls it home. For their dish, I'm bringing you a Fat Tire Chex Mix.
In the other corner, we have the Panthers. North Carolina is known for lots of delicious food, but one of the standout foods to come from there is Krispy Kreme donuts. For NC, I'm showing you how to assemble a donut dessert nacho bar.
Question is, which snack will be the better one?? Show up repping your team not only with your spirit, but also with your food choice!
NEW BELGIUM CHEX MIX
1 cup of New Belgium Fat Tire
1 cup of Smokehouse Almonds
1 cup of Honey Mustard Pretzels *I added in extra normal pretzels as well.
4 cups of Rice Chex
4 cups of Wheat Chex
6 tbsps Butter
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon of Salt
First, you need to turn the Fat Tire into a syrup by reducing it in a pan while on low heat. While it simmers into a syrup, you can gather together all of the other ingredients except the butter into a bowl.
Once the beer has turned into a syrup, add in the butter.
Next, pour the syrup mixture over the bowl of ingredients. Then lay out over a baking sheet.
Lastly, cook at 250 for an hour.
Make sure you store it an air tight bowl!
KRISPY KREME DONUT DESSERT NACHOS
Krispy Kreme donuts
Fruit (bananas, raspberries, strawberries)
Gah, these are indulgent, but DANG they are sooo good. For these, you will set up all of the ingredients into different bowls and then let everyone pick and choose their toppings as they want. These desserts nachos are incredibly customizable, and also probably my new favorite thing.
I laid out nutella, peanut butter, syrup, whipped cream, berries, bananas, coconut, and sprinkles with the donuts. I chose to buy some raspberry filled donuts because I love them, however, you can choose whatever kind of Krispy Kreme donut you want. If it's not the Superbowl, you can obviously choose whatever kind of donut you want. In this case, we're rocking the Krispy Kreme for the Panthers.
Cut up the donut pieces and then layer whatever other ingredients you want on top of it.
Which food do you think will win the snack off? Enjoy your Superbowl luvvvvs!!
