Dish: Fun Dipped Pretzels

Ingredients: pretzel rods, Wilton candy melts

Preparation: Melt candy according to package directions - typically in the microwave at half power or defrost for one minute, then continuing in 30 second intervals. Dip pretzel rods in melted candy, and let harden on parchment paper. You could also put the dipped pretzels in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to speed up this process.

Dish: Marbled Team Color Cupcakes

One box of white cake batter or favorite white cake recipe

Preparation: Prepare cake batter according to directions. Divide cake batter into three equal portions. Color one portion with blue coloring and another portion with orange coloring. Leave the white cake batter white. Add batter to each cupcake liner in alternating colors to allow them to bake with a layered color effect. Bake cupcakes for 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Finish with a swirl of buttercream icing.

Dish: Field Goal Cookies

Ingredients: Sugar cookies - either store bought or made from scratch. Rainbow nonpareils and green sugar sprinkles. Vanilla buttercream icing.

Preparation: Spread buttercream icing on each cookie. Cover half of cookie with rainbow sprinkles to represent a crowded stadium, and the other half with green sprinkles to represent the grass. Put buttercream icing into a decorating bag and pipe a goal post on each cookie.
