IT IS OFFICIAL! We are less than one week away from the big day – what day am I talking about? THE SUPERBOWL!! DUHHHHHH! What? I didn’t know that Haley was such a big fan of sports! Guys – let’s be real. I am a mediocre sports fan. Yes, duh, I am a born and raised Patriots fan – I love Tom Brady just as much as the next guy or gal from Massachusetts. But what do I love the most about the Superbowl? THE SNACKS!!! Again, duh. Have you met me? The Superbowl is just a fantastic excuse to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family. Oh – and I guess watch football. But what does one eat during the Superbowl when there are SO MANY amazing Superbowl options out there? Have no fear – I have compiled a list of the 26 BEST Superbowl Snacks. YUM YUM YUM!
The way I see it, there are two options for Superbowl meal planning. You can center your Superbowl snacking around a main meal, such as chili – then have a few sides for snacking. Or you can go FULL SUPERBOWL SNACK mode and just binge on all the delicious snacks and dips there ever were. For this post, we are going to focus on the FULL SUPERBOWL SNACK mode. But if you are looking for an awesome chili recipe, check out my previous post, The ULTIMATE Game Day Chili Roundup – I guarantee you will find at least one chili recipe that you cannot wait to try! Too lazy to be bothered with skimming through a recipe roundup? Check out one of my other awesome chili recipes: Crockpot Turkey, White Bean, Bacon Chili or Easy One Pot Chili. Both recipes are easy, healthy, and delicious. You and your families will not be disappointed. Not into chili? You will love my One Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup – shredded chicken, black beans, corn, rich tomato broth, all seasoned with cumin and chili powder. MMMMM!

Snacks with Meat
Easy Ham and Cheese Sliders by NOMaste Kitchen
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these Ham and Cheese Sliders – they are ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. They are so so easy to make and so delicious. Not to mention, they are ACTUALLY filling! I often eat SO MUCH on game day because I am searching for any sort of protein or substance in the available appetizers. But these? These are perfect – warm, buttery, and filling, yet not overly heavy or greasy. Every once in a while, I will throw these together for a weeknight dinner and Jake is always thrilled. Adult ham and cheese – yummmmayy.
Crockpot Grape Jelly Meatballs by The Salty Marshmallow
I know what you are thinking – grape jelly and meatballs? I PROMISE you are going to be so pleasantly surprised! These are hands down one of the all-time best Superbowl snacks because they are SO incredibly easy and SO incredibly delicious. Use your choice of all beef, pork, turkey, chicken or vegetarian meatballs.

How incredible do these look?? Melted cheese, warm roast beef, AND crispy fried onions?? Drooling…
Buffalo Chicken Rangoons by Kitchen Swagger
What a fun twist on the traditional buffalo chicken dip – small bite sized rangoons! This app is a little bit more “involved” since you do have to manually fry the rangoons – but I think they would be SO worth it! Looking for a standard Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe? Keep on scrolling my friend.
Quick and Easy Meatball Sliders by Homemade Interest
Can you tell I am obsessed with sliders? They are just SO easy and SO delicious! I could seriously eat Hawaiian rolls plain for days. They are incredible.
I love this Quick and Easy Meatball Sliders recipe because it is hearty and satisfying. Even if you don’t plan to make a pot of chili for your guests, they will still be satisfied with these protein packed sliders. Feel free to substitute with your favorite type of meatballs: all-beef, turkey, chicken, pork, vegetarian – you do you!
Buffalo Chicken Dip by Sugar Apron
And here we are – classic Buffalo Chicken Dip. An all time favorite football game snack. Need I say more?
Pigs in a Puff Pastry Blanket by Foodie Crush
So you can ABSOLUTELY by Pigs in a Blanket at the grocery store, throw them in the oven, then call it a day! But how cute are these? Plus, making your Pigs in a Blanket at home allows for more customization – does someone have a favorite type of sauce? Or maybe a preference for chicken dogs over beef – you can use this recipe however it best suits you.
Chicken and Waffle Sliders by Food Folks and Fun
THE EASIEST YET MOST IMPRESSIVE RECIPE THERE EVER WAS! Pre-made waffles. Pre-made chicken tenders. Cook, assemble, and accompany with maple syrup – bing bang boom! You are done. Looking for a fun variation? Perhaps try cinnamon waffles!
Crispy Philly Cheesesteak Appetizer Cups by Bite Sized Kitchen
The blog Bite Sized Kitchen was basically MADE for the Superbowl. Aleka creates incredible bite-sized recipes perfect for entertaining on all occasions. These Crispy Philly Cheesesteak Appetizer Cups definitely qualify as one the best Superbowl snacks for this year, especially since the Eagles are playing- I will let it slide that she happens to be a fan of the Eagles… 🙂
Crispy Honey BBQ Wings by A Night Owl Blog
Wings, wings, wings – There are SO many types of wings due to all the different flavor combinations and variations. Sweet BBQ, spicy BBQ, ranch, garlic parmesan, buffalo, thai chili, jerk, chipotle, jalapeno, sriracha – the list goes on… forever. Depending on your sauce preference, you will for sure have a wing recipe preference! But, having said that – I think this recipe for Honey BBQ wings is a winner and safe bet with a crowd. And, even better, these wings are crispy baked rather than fried. So you can eat twice as many, right?
35 Minute No Wait to Rise Stromboli a.k.a. Rolled Pizza by Carlsbad Cravings
Why is it that the only times I can remember having stromboli growing up was always in a mall food court at S’barro? Maybe because that is the only place I ever did have stromboli! Needless to say, stromboli is DELICIOUS! Pizza’s rolled cousin has got a lot to offer and this recipe by Carlsbad Cravings has got it going on. Easy sharing makes this one of the best Superbowl Snacks.
Bacon Ranch Pepper Jack Pull Apart Bread by Carlsbad Cravings
Seriously? Bacon. Ranch. Cheese. Bread. Words are not necessary.
Pulled Pork Nachos by Family Fresh Meals
You can’t watch a football game without some nachos!! I love this recipe by Family Fresh Meals because I love pulled pork – however, you can easily use your choice meat on top of these nachos or any other. Diced chicken or ground beef sauteed up with a little taco seasoning will taste like gold a top a mountain of tortilla chips and cheese. Serve with a few sides of guacamole, sour cream, and/or salsa – you are good to go!
Jalapeno Popper Wonton Cups by Lemon Tree Dwelling
A GAME DAY STAPLE! Okay okay you’re right, I have already mentioned that quite a few different appetizers are game day staples – but FOR REAL! Jalapeno poppers are for sure one of them! Check out this fun alternative to the classic Jalapeno popper – a Jalapeno Popper WONTON cup!

Cheesy Bean Dip by Chef In Training
Cheese and beans – cheesy bean dip – oh em gee – this looks incredible.
30-Minutes Spinach Artichoke Dip by Southern Parm
I think spinach artichoke is one of the most unappreciated dips out there. People turn up their nose because – ick spinach is healthy. Artichokes, bleh. I hate to break it to you people, but this dip ain’t healthy. What is it? Incredibly delicious – that is what it is! Throw it in a bread bowl for a fun twist that your guests will ohh and aww over! And this incredible recipe by Laurel from Southern Parm only takes 30 MINUTES! What could better?

Creamy avocado and fresh tomato will swoon even your meat loving friends into egg roll heaven.
Mac and Cheese Cups by Damn Delicious
Perhaps one of the more recent game day snack trends – fried mac and cheese balls are as delicious and unhealthy as they sound. These baked Mac and Cheese cup are just a little bit better! After all, what could be bad? Mac? Cheese? Nope and nope.
