Super Bowl Sunday - Not a Day to Diet

For years, the dining cognoscenti have eaten pretty much the same game-time snacks.  Brief refresher course - chips and salsa or guacamole, buffalo wings... 

But today, searching for material today and something other than the tons of avocados that will generously give their lives to be guacamole - guess what?  There are now themed desserts for Super Bowl Sunday!

Did you ever consider dessert with a major football game?  I sure as hell didn't.  Super Bowl (to me) is red go-cups (big ones) filled with keg beer; various dips, etc.  But not dessert.  It seems vaguely … wrong... don't you think, too?

Here are two that I came across. 

Cream together peanut butter (commercial not "healthy" - it separates) with cream cheese, spread out in a pie pan, cover the top with mini-chocolate chips and use pretzels to dip in. 

1 package Double Stuffed Oreos, ground into dust; blend in 4 oz. cream cheese and make football-shaped balls.  Dip the balls in two cups melted sweet chocolate,then fill a decorating tube with 1 cup white chocolate and make the football strings.  If that seems a little frou-frou for a football game, just dip half of it in the white chocolate. 

Or just give everyone a spoon and pass around a can of cake frosting. That's a football dessert, by damn!
