Fancy Super Bowl Snacks Made with Convenience Store Ingredients
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 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.

Corn Chip-Crusted Fried Ravioli
What's better than deep-fried food during the Super Bowl? Deep-fried food with a batter made of salty corn chips. Bonus: They're super fast and made with ravioli from a can.

Here's a recipe so simple, you could probably make it during a commercial break between plays. But if you don't want to miss the TV spots (after all, you'll want to share your favorites around the water cooler on Monday), no problem: This takes just two minutes!

Fun and Oniony Mac and Cheese Bites
Crispy, cheesey and loaded with onion flavor — we transformed the Southern side dish into one-bite hors d'oeuvres so you can pop 'em and keep an eye on the big game at the same time.

Fish in a Pond
Here's a grown-up version of the kids' favorite Worms in Dirt dessert that's served in shot glasses. It could substitute for a real shot in a Super Bowl drinking game, especially for anyone who has a sweet tooth-or is the designated driver.

Crispy Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Football Dummies
Training for football involves a lot of pushing and jumping over football dummies. But if they were made out of crispy rice cereal bars coated in chocolate, you'd do none of that; you'd just devour them.

Pigs in a Pigskin
It's funny that one of the monikers for a football is a pigskin, when pork rinds have nothing to do with it. So, just for fun, we decided to put some piggies in pigskin (instead of a blanket, which makes no sense either).

French Onion Chili
No soup for you? Have some chili instead; it's heartier. We've even Frenchified it with some mozzarella sticks and onion-flavored rings. C'est bon!

Nacho Chip-Battered Flautas

Nutty and Beefy Football Cookies
What's a football party without cookies in the shape of footballs? But there's no need to bake. Just pick up some peanut butter sandwich cookies in the shape of big flat peanuts. You can carve them into the ball shape and julienne the meat sticks into laces.
