I'm working on Game Day recipes this week in preparation for Super Bowl! I'm not a big football fan, but I do love the food and the commercials - so bring it on!
If you can't tell by now, I'm a bit of a homebody. I've found that it's either far too hot to go outside and do anything worth enjoying or it's just too cold. There's probably three months of the year here in Texas that I find tolerable to venture outdoors for longer than a few hours in.
That being said... I love, love, love to homegate! What's homegating? That's where you 'tailgate' from the comforts of your own home. And... if you don't know what tailgating is - well then you probably wouldn't be looking up game day food to begin with, hah!
While working on my plan for game day food this year, I thought the most difficult thing to come up with was the dessert! I never really realized it before... but we don't generally have much if any dessert prepared for our game day spread. Gasp! And anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a huuuge dessert fanatic!
I didn't want a cake or cookie. No. I wanted something a little different. Something that everyone would enjoy. The women, the men, and even the kiddos! Gamedays are parties after all, so it needs to be something fun!
A hah! A skinny dip would be perfect! And what better? Let's have it with lots and lots of sprinkles. Sprinkles just make everyone smile!
I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned this before. But, seriously. Can you even think about sprinkles without smiling? I know that I can't. My cheeks hurt now even.
This wouldn't just be perfect for homegating. This would be great for a birthday or even a girls night! A fabulous dessert that's well under 200 calories? I'll make it with any excuse I can find!
