Five on Friday: Super Bowl Edition

You know the deal...

Don't worry this doesn't actually have anything to do with football because I don't really watch it. That doesn't mean I can't enjoy the commercials and delicious food! 

1. Budweiser Puppy Love Commercial - anything with a puppy kills me.  I'm also obsessed with the song Let Her Go

2.   Anna Kendrick's Faux Super Bowl New Castle Commercial- I freaking love her and think she's hystercial.

3. Football Shaped Brownies-  A few years ago I made football shaped rice krispy treats dipped in chocolate for super bowl.  They were amazing and a lot of work.  This year I've decided to make brownies in the shape of footballs since they require a little less work and who doesn't love a brownie.  

4. Buffalo Chicken Dip- I love this bad for you dip and I love to break it out for special occasions like Super Bowl.  I don't like the low fat version I like the full fat delicious version.   Oh and for the record I'm pretty sure I post about this dip every year on this blog. 

Here is the recipe I follow:
4 or 5  boneless skinless chicken breats (I know some poeple use canned chicken but I refuse to and always use fresh chicken breast)
1 (12 ounce) jar of hot red pepper sauce (I usually use Frank's Red hot buffalo)
16 ounce cream cheese, softened 
1 bottle (12 ounces) ranch or blue cheese dressing (I usually do ranch)
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded 
Boil the chicken in water to cover in a large saucepan for 20-30 minutes or until fully cooked.  Shred the chicken with a fork into bite sized pieces and place in a bowl.   
Pour the hot sauce over the chicken to marinate and let sit for 8-10 hours (There is no need to do it this long at all, I would say 2-3 max is all you really need.  If you have time then do it over night if not don't worry about it ) 
In a 9x13 baking dish layer the cream cheese, undrained marinated chicken, salad dressing and top with mozzarella. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  I always serve mine with Fritos scoops but any type of tortilla chip will work.

5. Champagne-  I've been thinking about what I'm going to drink for Super Bowl for at least a week now and I've decided I will be breaking out some champagne to enjoy.   I LOVE champagne and before I had Miller it was honestly my weekday drink of choice.  Now that I can't quite drink it fast enough to enjoy it before it goes flat I save it for special occasions. Super Bowl falls into the category of special occasion so I plan to enjoy.    My champagne of choice is Korbel. 

What are your super bowl plans? 



  1. I watched that puppy commercial last night! It's so precious! I'm a serious sucker for puppies! We always make that buffalo chicken dip. It's so yummy. The football brownies are super cute. I might steal your idea!

  2. I may need to make that dip for Sunday! That puppy ad... I can't even!

  3. Champagne is my drink of choice too! I would take it over a glass of wine any day. I love both of those commercials -- I'm a sucker for the pups and I just adore Anna Kendrick. Do you follow her on Twitter? She's hilarious!

  4. Buffalo chicken dip and champagne sounds like the best super bowl combo!! Enjoy it! Xx

  5. I'm completely obsessed with BOTH of those commercials. Anything with puppies, I'm sold (and i ADORE that song) - same for Anna Kendrick. Can she be my BFF please?

  6. I love the Anna Kendrick commercial! I think we are just going over to a friends house to watch the game but I will have to come home early (like last year) to put Hunter to bed. Oh well.

  7. Amen to no canned chicken. That's just gross. Because my team went out in the NFC championship game two weeks ago, I'm strictly in it for the food and commercials this year. I'm drooling trying to decide what to make but it's definitely going to be an apps for dinner night.

  8. I could cAre less about the Super Bowl this year...so I actually got to the movies. I know, so unAmerican of me!

  9. I'm totally with you on champs during superbowl. I go in spurts of obsessing over champagne and I'm def on that kick at the moment! Cheers!

  10. How much do I love Anna Kendrick "I mean I'm hot but not like beer commercial hot" hysterical. I totally agree with you! That dip is amazing and you have to go full fat version....I mean it's not like we are eating it everyday!

  11. The Super Bowl totally qualifies as a champagne occasion!

    I'm so glad commericials are on YouTube now...I'm so ingrained to NOT pay attention during commercials that I tend to do the same during the Super Bowl, when in actuality I couldn't care less about the game and should use that as my "commercial time" ha!

  12. I love Anna Kendrick- she is my fav! I also enjoyed champagne during the super bowl as it is my drink of choice :)

  13. Football shaped brownies... yum! I really liked that spray tan commercial.
