The Super Bowl is upon us once again. Even though my team didn’t make it that far this year, I will still be parked in front of the television watching the game (and the commercials!). No party for me this year, but here are a couple recipes that will work for a party crowd or just a small get together. Check out our other recipes for more ideas!
Print Recipe Chocolate Mint Truffles
Bring cream and honey to a simmer and add mint. Cover and remove from heat and let set for about 30 minutes. Strain and discard mint leaves. Add more cream to mixture to make it measure 6 ounces.
Heat cream mixture just to steaming and pour over chocolate . Let set for a couple of minutes and start stirring until the chocolate is melted. Add butter one tablespoon at a time and stir well each time.
Once butter and chocolate mixture is blended well, allow to set for a few minutes. Stir gently until thick and glossy (about room temperature).
Drop by spoonfulls (about 11/2-2 tbsps) onto parchment paper and allow to set. You can refrigerate them at this point to speed things up. Once firm, roll into balls and roll in cocoa powder, chopped nuts or dip into melted dipping chocolate. Garnish if desired.
Print Recipe Super Bowl Dip
This dip can be eaten warm or cold. Substitute the breakfast sausage with 2 small cans of chicken for a completely different taste. Serve with potato chips, crackers, tortilla chips or even pork rinds.
Cook sausage (crumble) and drain well.
Combine sausage (or chicken), cream cheese, chives and Rotel. Mix well. Heat or chill, depending on how you wish to serve.
