I love this dish because it’s creative but also familiar. The brine and tartar sauce kind of trick you into thinking you are having seafood, but at the end of the day they are a nice upgrade on fried chicken wings — football’s favorite tailgate food. But when you are watching a good game, who’s got time for bones?
Looking for an easy football-shaped food to serve at your Super Bowl party? Look no further.
These chocolate-covered strawberries require only three ingredients and are extremely adorable. Okay, maybe adorable isn’t the quality you’re looking for in a Super Bowl snack, but regardless…they’ll be a hit.
Just dip your fruit into melted milk chocolate then pipe on melted white chocolate to make the laces…and that’s it! Check out the video above to see how it’s done and get the full recipe over at SouthernLiving.com. Happy Super Bowl!
(And if you’re still not sold, we’ve got plenty of other football-shaped snack options for you to choose from).
