Super Bowl Party Dessert Tray




We were invited to a Super Bowl party at a new friend's home and I was happy when asked to bring a dessert. One of my favorite things to put together for a casual, buffet style event is a dessert tray with a variety of small desserts that are easy to eat and portable. I find that most people are too health conscious to want a big slice of of cake, but can't resist sampling a cookie on a dessert tray. It is easy to make a platter of desserts look pretty by mixing flavors (chocolate/citrus/fruit) and colors.



Here's what I put together for Super Bowl Sunday, including recipes. I started by using a large tray with four sections. One section was filled with a variety of pastries from the grocery store bakery. Section two was filled with one of my specialties - Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. Section three contained my favorite Lemon Brownies and Section Four was filled with a new recipe from Pinterest - German Chocolate Cookies. They are made with a cake mix, a can of frosting and quick drizzle of dark chocolate and were definately the hit of the party.

A sweet ending to another football season.

Happy Monday!

  3. Love this idea. You are so right, most just want a small bite or two.

  4. That looks SO good! I love your idea of several desserts that can be nibbled! Lovely!
