Super Bowl XLVII, a.k.a. The Brother Bowl, is little more than a week away, which means food and football enthusiasts are readying for one of the year’s biggest bashes. As a San Diego native, I’ve been a longtime Chargers fan. But seeing as they didn’t even make the playoffs, I quickly transfered my enthusiasm and emotional investment to the Packers and the Patriots. And then they both lost in the playoffs.
So now that I’m team-less heading into the big game, I’ve devoted all of my energy to hitting the gym extra hard. Hah. Right. No, I’ve devoted all of my energy to planning the ultimate gourmet game day. Here are nine of my favorite Super Bowl snacks, from potato skins to chicken wings and every taste in between.
Chorizo and Cheddar Potato Skins
Simple potatoes transform into crispy cups loaded with crumbled chorizo, shredded cheddar, tangy sour cream and freshly-sliced scallions.
Pepperoni Pizza Pull-Apart Bread
Skip the slices in favor of the easy, cheesy pizza bread that sandwiches layers of homemade dough with tomato sauce, pepperoni, shredded mozzarella and melted garlic butter.
Pickled Deviled Eggs
Add a pop of color to your spread with a kicked up take on classic deviled eggs finished off with a dash of smoky paprika.
Homemade Barbecue Potato Chips
It’s hard to beat hot, crispy potato chips tossed with a homemade blend of barbecue-inspired seasonings and spices.
Homemade Falafel with Tahini Sauce
Tuck pan-fried falafel and tangy tahihi sauce into warm pita pockets for the ultimate handheld snack.
Store-bought dough transforms into doughy bread knots brushed with hot garlic-parsley butter.
Hot and Creamy Artichoke Dip
This make-ahead dip stars jarred artichokes, garlic, jalapeños and cheese, making it the perfect dip for crackers or crudite.
Roasted Garlic Hummus
This homemade hummus is a fast and healthy dip loaded with an entire head of roasted garlic.
Crispy Baked Asian Chicken Wings
Forget the deep-frying and bake your way to crispy, crunchy chicken wings tossed in a sweet and tangy hoisin-blackberry glaze.

I don’t know which one to start with–each recipe I liked even more than the last!
Wonderful photos, too!
great list Kelly! I can’t wait to try some of these!
I so want to try that pull-apart bread! These all look so wonderful! :)
Ok, I’ll be at your house for the big game! These all look delicious!
I’d love to partake in your SB party. I love football solely for the food!
All of these look SO good, but I am especially liking the sound of the garlic knots, artichoke dip, falafel, and pizza bread….oh wait, that’s like almost every recipe that you posted! ;) I would also love making the potato skins with soyrizo since I am a vegetarian. I think that would be absolutely delicious.
What a fantastic line-up of Superbowl snacks!!!! Everything looks delicious, I might eat that whole platter of chorizo & cheddar potato skins!! Holy moly!!!
Hey Kelly, love your site! I visit daily.
Could I make the pizza pull-apart bread the day before I bake it?
Great round-up! That pull apart bread looks amazing–boy do I love the Super Bowl (and not so much for the football!).
My husband’s favorite thing in the world are garlic knots. One time I forgot to order them and he pouted for like, an hour. I am going to use your recipe this weekend!
What a tasty line-up! Love the wings — I agree, forget frying, oven baked are easier and delish!
