Who doesn't love a good snack? We tend to focus on a fresh lunch or a hearty breakfast or a fancy dinner, but snacks have just as much room to be a decadent surprise. What better time to show off your snack skills than the Super Bowl?

There are a few things required of every Super Bowl party. Soda. Beer. But mainly chips, dips and other snacks. Sure, you could just run to the store and pick up a jar of queso, but where's the fun in that? This year, as the New England Patriots face off against the Philadelphia Eagles, step up your game. Make Super Bowl LII truly unique with your own homemade recipe and make the crowds go wild. Turn the sports event into a culinary one. You might even be more talked-about than the halftime show.
