This Football Snack Board for Two has a variety of different football snacks in smaller sizes to be enjoyed by a small group without waste.
I love a good football party. I enjoy the game and the commercials, but I’m mostly into the food. Football snacks are some of my favorite snacks. There’s always a ton of dips, chips, pizza, and wings. This year, I won’t be going to any parties to watch the Super Bowl. But we still really wanted to eat all of the football snacks.
I decided to make us a Football Snacks Board, but for just the two of us. I created mini versions of our favorite dips and heated up a few frozen appetizers. Then, laid them out with chips and veggies for dipping. Now we can eat a variety of football snacks, without wasting food.

Football Snacks Board for Two
Buffalo Chicken Dip
My absolute favorite dip at any party is Buffalo Chicken Dip, so I knew making that was a must. I shrank my normal recipe down to about a 1/8th of what I usually make. A little sampling size is ideal for this football snack board for two. I used a small (2 cup) Pyrex dish to make my dip and heated it in the microwave instead of the oven. I had all of the necessary ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Dip on hand. Win! We keep canned chicken on hand for chicken salad sandwiches, so I used a bit of that with my cream cheese, Ranch, Buffalo sauce, and cheese. I prefer this dip with celery, so I chopped a few sticks to serve with it.
5 Layer Dip
My next mini dip for this football snacks board was my 5 Layer Dip. This dip is made with black beans, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, and cheese. I whipped up a quick homemade pico and guacamole but you could also use store-bought! Since I didn’t need a whole can of black beans for a mini-sized dip, I stored the rest of the black beans in the fridge for us to use for dinner this week. I followed my 5 Layer Dip recipe, layering each ingredient in another small Pyrex dish. There was a lot of extra pico de gallo, so I put that in a small ramekin to add to the snack board as well.
Layered Greek Dip
For my last dip, I chose my Layered Greek Dip, just to add some different flavors to this football snacks board. I made my own hummus and tzatziki sauce. But again you can order some from the grocery store if you want. I had a lot of leftover hummus, so that was also added to a small ramekin to serve with carrots and cucumbers. This football snack board could use a few more vegetables. So I layered the hummus with marinated cucumbers and tomatoes, tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese in another small Pyrex dish. I didn’t have any pita chips on hand, so I decided to serve the dip with pretzels instead.
Then, I heated up a few taquitos and pizza rolls to add to this football snacks board, because (for me) it’s just not the Super Bowl without them. I only heated up about 10 pizza rolls and 4 taquitos, which I also cut in half. Again, the point of this board is so we can have a little bit of everything without wasting a ton of food. Or exploding from being too full.
These little appetizers are frozen, so I can just hang on to them. They can be part of a fun lunch for the kids, or my husband and I can eat them while watching movies for date night. The point is, they won’t go to waste.
I arranged my football snacks board on a large piece of craft paper on our kitchen island. The island has a clear view of the TV in the living room, so it’s the perfect spot to graze on food and not miss a bit of the game. I spaced out the main dips on the board first, then added the small ramekins of extra salsa and hummus, plus some sour cream. Once all my dishes were laid out I filled in the space with Tostito’s Scoops (the best dip chip IMO), pretzel chips, taquitos, pizza rolls, and veggies. Then, I garnished everything with a little cilantro. And BOOM! A football snacks board with a ton of variety, but a manageable size for two people.
Oh yes perfect timing! I need to figure out snacks for our superbowl party of 2 🙂
This is absolutely GENIUS! We won’t be doing a party, just watching with my parents, but it’s been requested that I make buffalo chicken dip (a family favorite). I may have to mix it up and make something like this too – or at least suggest it to my mom! I’m sure it would be a huge hit!
Yes! Tag me if you do something like this! I’d love to see it!
Okay, I know what I’m creating for Super Bowl Sunday… this is perfect! Such a great idea to put all the yummy munchies on one board together!
Yes! If you make it tag me on Insta! I’d love to see what you do!
Food is my favorite category to read about, and this post did not disappoint. I love how you laid the snacks across the table. I wouldn’t have thought about that. This looks so good 🙂
