Like Peas & Carrots


The girls over at the Real Housewives of Oklahoma understand the love between football and food--they just go together. They want to know what kind of great appetizers will be on tap for the Super Bowl.

Now, Super Bowl parties are different from other football outings in that they tend to be a blending of the guys and gals. So here goes--a spicy, meaty appetizer for the guys and cute, salty, sweet appetizer for the gals. I've shared these with you before but they are definitely worth a repeat!

Monkey Brains

1lb. Neese's hot sausage, browned and drained
1lb. Velveeta cheese (no reduced fat or 2%, per Rev it changes the consistency)
1 16oz. jar of salsa

Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker, crank that puppy up to high and wait.

Give it a good stir every once in a while.

Cook approximately 30 minutes or until cheese is completely melted and combined.

Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos Scoops.

Bugle Party Hats

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
6 cups Bugles original flavor snacks
12 ounces white chocolate chips

Fill plastic sandwich bag with peanut butter.

Cut small hole in corner of bag.

Twist open end of bag tight and carefully pipe the peanut butter into the Bugles.

Refrigerate and allow peanut butter to firm up.In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy coating at 70% power for 1 1/ 2 minutes. Stir.

Heat 1 to 1 1/2 minutes longer or until melted; stir until smooth. Dip the peanut butter filled end of each Bugle halfway into the chocolate coating.

Dip in any type of sprinkles desired.

Place on waxed paper to dry.

Now, hurry and go share your appetizer recipes with the girls!

OMWow!!! I can't wait to try these out! Thank you so much for linking up & sharing! I was really hoping more people would. I guess they don't love food & football like we do ;-)! Or maybe they all still have Christmas Diets on the brain- LOL! You know they have to cook...surely they don't order Applebees, Chili's & Pizza Hut for Superbowl- that is shameful! Be watching the blog for our 2/4/11 post! ShaRhonda/Mrs. Hart @ The Real Housewives of Oklahoma
