Who’s here for football…and the snacks? We all know that food is the most important part of a party, and your contribution could do wonders in making your social presence all the sweeter.

It’d be easy to just grab a fruit container or sandwich plate to bring (or present if you’re hosting), and sure, that could be an easy save if you’re at a loss for ideas or running late. But why not boost the vibe a bit with a tad more effort? Give yourself some planning and prep time, and you could be one of – if not the most popular people at the party! And if you’re the host, your guests will undoubtedly form a great association with your social gatherings.

Besides, it’s fun to have an excuse to make food for friends and share a pretty flat lay on Instagram!

Snacks and Appetizers

With snacks and appetizers especially, the sky is the limit! You can make your food with a healthy twist with your own dietary preferences in mind, or you can just have a treat night and indulge in the more calorie dense goodies for the occasion. 

Football Nacho Tray

Cute and delicious? Check. You can't go wrong with the girls or the guys when you bring a football-themed nacho tray for everyone to enjoy.

Sticky Bourbon Chicken Skewers

These chic bits of protein are an easy crowd-pleaser and can be made gluten-free and paleo (just use gluten-free soy sauce and swap cornstarch for tapioca starch). If you want to skip the bourbon, you can just use chicken broth for the marinade. 

Pig Shots

A tasty upgrade from the classic Pigs in a Blanket. These are rich but packed with flavor and protein and are naturally gluten-free. 

Bacon-Wrapped Little Smokies

A classic cocktail bite wrapped in smoky bacon and coated with a brown sugar rub! If you’d prefer to use big chunks of chicken sausage, the choice is yours. This recipe is free of all the major allergens.

Keto Poppers

These Pickle Poppers or Jalapeño Poppers are easy to make, carb-less, and delightfully savory! They’re both also naturally gluten-free. 

Potato Balls w/Cheddar Sauce

Delish is the right word for this appetizer! If you’d prefer not to fry, you can pop these guys into the air-fryer (just lightly coat them with some avocado or olive oil cooking spray before turning on the heat). To make them gluten-free, simply use gluten-free Panko breadcrumbs. If you want to skip the cheese sauce or provide a dairy-free option, you could serve these with bits of spicy sausage on toothpicks or a Sloppy Joe dip.

Green Chili Enchilada Dip

Warm, cheesy, spicy, and yummy. Pair with tortilla chips and maybe even a side of guacamole. This dish is naturally gluten-free. 

Black Bean Salsa

If you want a gluten and dairy-free, healthier option, try this Black Bean Salsa. It’s super easy and very flavorful, and you could even add little chunks of mango or pineapple to the mix.

Goat Cheese Truffles

One, two, three, drool. These classy and tasty mouthfuls of decadence are sure to please! Plus, they’re gluten-free (and sometimes, those who are lactose-intolerant can eat goat cheese without issues). 

Charcuterie Cheeseboard

Everybody’s favorite! The sky is your creativity’s limit with this snack spread. Grab some goodies from Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Aldi’s, or your local farmer’s market, and go ham! 


Football Brownie Bites

All you really need is two bites after you've been loading up on nachos and beer anyway, right? Try these cute football-themed brownie bites for the perfect post-game treat.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

The perfect midpoint between buckeyes and rice crispy treats. This recipe is quick to make and finger-friendly to eat.

Oreo Football Truffles

Talk about a fun twist on a delicious treat! This recipe is no-bake and can be made gluten-free (grab GF Oreos or GF Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joe’s). 

Football Rice Krispy Treats

Kick off the game with a sporty customization on the American classic. These munchies are gluten-free (and can be made dairy-free using vegan butter). 

Or, if you've already got a box of Chex lying around, try this recipe!

Monkey Bread

Pull-apart and gluten-free to boot – everyone loves sticky buns! These donut-like bites actually end up looking like mini footballs. Add chopped pecans and bake with the sugar mixture if you desire. 

Millionaire Shortbread Bars

These elevated Twix bars are easy and no-bake! If you want a gluten-free and vegan (dairy-free) version, try this recipe.
