Are you ready for some football? This Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons play the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC title, and more importantly for Boston, the New England Patriots take on the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC Conference title. The winners of each game will be moving on to New Orleans to play in Super Bowl XLVII on February 3! Since this weekend and in a couple of weeks, Super Bowl is coming up, it is time to start planning the menu for all the delicious sweet and salty snacks to enjoy while watching.
Whether you are staying in and watching the games with your family or hosting a large party, make the games memorable with tasty food and drinks. The recipe included below is from newly retired Patriots player Matt Light, who knows a thing or two about the Super Bowl, since he played in it last year. It’s great for the playoffs, Super Bowl parties, or really any day of the week to munch on! Check it out below:
