Super bowl desserts

I’m not going to lie; I am not a huge sports person. So when it’s Superbowl season, you can usually find me in the kitchen making the snacks. 

As much as I love a cream cheese ball or cheesy nachos, my favorite part about the Super Bowl is the desserts. 

Of course, some desserts translate better to game day than others. So, I’ve filtered through the dozens we’ve created to find the 20 best treats worthy of the big game. Each one is easy to make and guaranteed to make you the host of the season!

What makes the perfect Super Bowl dessert?

I’ve participated in more Super Bowl parties than I can remember. Here are some of my top tips for picking the best game day desserts:

  • Sharable. This may seem like a no-brainer, but having treats pre-sliced or that people can grab from a bowl is way easier and will help make less mess. 
  • Fuss-free. Whether you’re hosting or visiting, odds are the kitchen is a bit chaotic, so save yourself a headache and pick a dessert that’s easy to make in advance.
  • Temperature stable. Whatever you make will probably be left on the counter for hours, so pick a treat that won’t melt on you. 
  • Pick ones that taste great! Of course, at the end of the day, the game is all about having fun and eating good food, so pick desserts you think everyone will love.

No-bake gameday desserts

Each of these no-bake desserts comes together with a handful of ingredients in 20 minutes or less. 

  • Healthy puppy chow– AKA the ultimate Super Bowl recipe, made with Chex cereal tossed in sunflower seed butter and melted chocolate. 
  • Cake batter dip– Light, fluffy, and slightly tangy from the Greek yogurt; this is my favorite dessert dip. 
  • Oreos cookies & cream dip– Okay, maybe THIS is my favorite dessert dip. Made with Oreo cookie bits and cream cheese, it doesn’t really get more decadent than this. 
  • Chocolate coconut cookies– If anyone in your crew loves bounty bars, they’ll probably hoard these cookies.

Chocolate gameday desserts

When I hear “dessert,” the first thing that comes to mind is chocolate, and the Super Bowl is no exception. These chocolate desserts are guaranteed to be a hit, so make a double batch if you expect a crowd!

  • Nutella brownies– I’ve been eating healthy Nutella since I was a kid, and I can’t think of a better combination than stirring some into ultra-gooey football brownies. 
  • Chocolate peanut butter balls– They’re basically no-bake Reese’s peanut butter cups but made WAY healthier. 
  • Vegan double chocolate cookies– When I watch the game at a friend’s house, I usually bring a diet-friendly treat just in case of any allergies. These vegan-friendly chocolate cookies taste incredible, and they’re easy to make gluten-free, too. 
  • Chocolate chip cheesecake bars– Soft blondies stuffed with chocolate chips and creamy cheesecake filling. 
  • No-bake caramel cookie dough bars– Made with layers of gooey caramel, edible chocolate chip cookie dough, and melted chocolate, this dessert might steal the show.

Cupcakes, muffins, and cookies

Cookies and cupcakes are easy grab-and-go dessert options that you can easily make in advance, and if you make these, you won’t have to worry about having leftovers.

  • Biscoff cupcakes– Chocolate cupcakes filled with caramel and topped with cookie butter frosting– need I say more?
  • Almond flour muffins– Made low-carb and gluten-free, no one will ever be the wiser.
  • Cookie butter cookies– One of my favorite flourless desserts. Made with Biscoff cookie butter and chocolate chips, everyone will want to know the secret ingredient.
  • M&M cookies– This is one of my safe-bet recipes that I know everyone will love, even the picky eaters. 
  • Almond flour sugar cookies– Sugar cookies are another guaranteed people pleaser. Plus, you can even frost them in the team’s colors!

Game day dessert bars

I love making dessert bars since they’re denser and more filling than cookies, so I can really pack in a lot of flavors and fun mix-ins. 

  • Monster cookie bars– Soft, chewy, studded with M&Ms, and filled with warm cinnamon and chocolate flavor. 
  • Caramel slice– A classic Australian dessert made with layers of shortbread, caramel, and milk chocolate. No one will see these bad boys coming!
  • Carrot cake bars– Another easy no-bake bar recipe that’s easy to make ahead and won’t lose its texture over time.
