Lulu's Top Picks for Super Bowl 50 Treats and Sweets

It has been quite a week in my house! Between our dog's preparing the Super Bowl to my knee surgery (walking cast now, wahoo), it's been pretty crazy. And now we are all very excited for the big game this weekend - although I have to admit I am really looking forward to the funny commercials! 


Wondering what Sneeky to make for Sunday? Try my Dark and Stormy for a tasty alternative to beer that will have all the men (and women) at your party cheering for more. This rum and ginger-infused creation is sure to score you some major points as you watch your favorite team score some of their own! 

Lulu's Dark and Stormy Sneeky

1 1/2 Ounces Gosling's Black Seal Rum or any other dark rum
Splash of bitters (optional)
About 1/2 cup ginger beer
1/2 lime

Fill a highball glass with ice, add the rum, a splash of bitters  (if desired) and top with ginger beer. Squeeze the lime into the glass, stir, and squeeze the lime into the drink.

My favorite thing to add to my Super Bowl snacks is a decadent cheese platter. I recently shared my favorite cheeses and decorating tips with House Beautiful in this article

Variety is the spice of life, as they say... it's also the spice of any cheese spread you lay out! I suggest adding an array of cheeses that vary in texture, taste, and color. Don't forget to add some nuts and pretty dried fruit for an extra special touch. I love putting dried orange slices, sliced bread, and specialty crackers out to accentuate the already mouth-watering display. 

I also love these awesome ideas I found on Pinterest! Check out my Board for recipes like Individual Seven-Layer Dips, Pretzel Dog Bites with a Beer Cheese Dip, Duck-Fat Chex Mix (Lulu's Tip: I would love to add some crispy bacon to this one!), and this adorable Football Field tablescape. 

Check out the rest of my favorite Super Bowl food and entertaining ideas on my Super Bowl Board on Pinterest!  Be sure to follow me for year round inspiration and fun.
