So the big game is finally upon us, and you, like many other people in this country of football (the American kind, that is), are out to watch it in style — on television, in the comfort of your favorite bar or living room. And as everyone knows, it’s not just about gathering around a flat screen with a couple of brewskis to make the game more exciting, it’s also about the snacks that are served and consumed, in a great American tradition on par with Thanksgiving.
Let’s say that, for whatever reason, you’ve found yourself playing last-minute host for a Super Bowl party, and you don’t have time to do a big supermarket run. Have no fear. All you need to do is hit your closest gas station convenience store — where we bought all the ingredients for these Super Bowl snack recipes, which are as tasty as they are convenient. Just be sure to make a lot of them; they might be gone before the first commercial break.
