Super Bowl parties are notorious (and synonymous) with an abundance of binge-worthy eats, often to an embarrassing degree. We took on the challenge of transforming the typical game day fare into a more polished spread, without compromising the spirit of day. Think cheeseboard, but with a Super Bowl twist. See for yourself!

Cover the table with regular or craft paper for a casual feel and an easy cleanup – plus you’ll feel less guilty for piling it up with food.

for dessert
STRAWBERRY & BIRTHDAY CAKE MILKSHAKE

One of our favorite aspects of this milkshake? It takes just minutes and doesn’t require a blender thanks to the refreshingly light consistency of these Halo Top flavors.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 scoops strawberry ice cream
  • 1 scoop birthday cake ice cream (vanilla works as well)
  • 1 cup milk
  • mini donuts for the topping

STEPS

In a glass, blend 1 scoop of the strawberry cake ice cream with the birthday cake scoop and milk, using a whisk. Once the mixture is at an even consistency, top with the remaining scoop of strawberry ice cream and serve with a stack of mini donuts.
