6 tailgating treats to drool over (and make!)

ST1

Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes: Yes, it's a real buffalo wing. And blue cheese buttercream frosting. AND hot sauce in the batter. Interested? We thought so. 

ST2

Football Crab Spread: Hunger is the bane of many pretty things that are also delicious. This football-shaped spread probably won't stay football-shaped for long. 

ST3

Guinness Chocolate Pudding: Try your beer a different way with some fancy pudding. According to the recipe, the end result is more bakery than brewery, but the stout gives it an extra some'n some'n.

ST4

Football Cake Pops: Cute little footballs. Cake pops. Two awesome things become one. And as a bonus, there's icing right in the cake!

ST5

Walking Tacos: Fritos make nifty little taco particles, but since you're probably not walking anywhere, you can call these "Lounging on the Couch Tacos."

ST6

Football Whoopie Pies: If you have never had a whoopie pie, get thee to one STAT. Preferably these delectable football-shaped variations.
