Super Bowl XLV- Last Minute Party Ideas

Unprepared for this year's Super Bowl?? Did your house become the last minute party place? Or are you just not sure you'll have enough food?? No worries!! Here are some last minute snack ideas that involve a quick trip to the grocery store and just a few minutes of your time (and they're great if you have kids at your party as well!!).

-Pigs in a blanket- Just grab a package of Lil' Smokies and some Pillsbury ready made pizza dough (comes in a tube). Unroll it, cut in to small strips, and roll 'em up and bake for about 10 mins. This makes a lot and are sure to be a hit!

-Creamy Bacon Croissant Bites- This simple recipe is mouth watering! Grab a tube of Pillsbury small croissants, a block of cream cheese, and a jar of real bacon bits. Mix the cream cheese and bacon together. Unroll croissants individually. Place a spoon sized dallop of the bacon mixture on the center of the croissant dough and roll it, pinching at the ends. Bake according to directions on the croissant rolls.

-Fiesta Nacho Dip- Pick up a block of Velveeta, 2 cans of refried beans, and a large can of Ro*Tel's mexican style diced tomotoes. This is simple! Throw all this together in your crock pot and let it melt and simply stir! Serve with tortilla chips or small tortillas!

Super Bowl Sunday is usually a gathering of friends, family and food. If you plan to serve alcohol at your party this year, please be a responsible host and make sure there is a designated driver present!
