Super Bowl Party

My parents had us over for a super fun Pre-Super Bowl themed Family Home Evening.  The food was so fun, and so delicious I just had to share!

The tables were so cute!!!  My mom made theses place mats using brown and white construction paper!  Easy, yet so cute!  She found the fun cups and centerpieces at Zurchers, and the table cloth at her local grocery store Dicks!  

My sister-in-law Heather made this super cool stadium style relish/chip tray!  She saw some ideas on Pinterest and then made it her own!
My Mom made these super cute football chocolate covered strawberries, using a melted Hershey Bar, and melted white chocolate.

and these super cute deviled eggs!  Just add the football stitches with green onions!

A "pig skinned" football!  I made a regular cheese ball, and then rolled it in bits of bacon and then shaped it like a football.  I used a knife to cute the football lines.  So easy.
Cheese Ball

Doris Garner's Recipe
16 ounces cream cheese
1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup minced green onions
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup mayonnaise
*I like to add a little fresh garlic, or garlic salt!

Place cheeses in small mixer bowl; let stand at room temperature until softened.  Add onion and Worcestershire sauce; blend on low speed.  Beat on medium speed until fluffy, scraping side and bottom of bowl.  Cover and chill.  Shape mixture into one large ball or many small ones.  Roll in chopped nuts or crushed cracker crumbs, or parsley.  Serve with crackers.
I have these fun football cookie cutters found in this set here (anyone local is welcome to borrow them!) 
These helmets look harder then they are.  Simply frost the helmet part.  Then using white frosting, put into a Ziplock bag, cut a small corner off and use it to make the face mask and ear hole. No fancy frosting tips used here...

I used the same Ziploc baggies to frost the lines on the footballs too.  No they are professional, but I'm here to be real, not a pro.

Sugar Cookies

Carolyn Reese
2 cups sugar

1 cup shortening
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cream of tarter
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
5 to 7 cups of flour (I usually do 6)
Mix ingredients together in order given.  Dough will be stiff.  Roll out about 1/2 inch think and cut with cookie cutters.  Bake at 350 for 9 minutes.

Butter Cream Frosting

Natalia Garner
1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup butter
Pinch of Salt
5 Tbsp of milk
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Karo corn syrup
Cream together shortening and butter.  Add pinch of salt and vanilla.  Gradually add powdered sugar and milk.  Blend well.  And corn syrup last, beating an additional 3-4 minutes.
