Superbowl dessert

Yet another Superbowl party question. We have been invited for a dinner and I have volunteered to add to the dessert board. There will be two "football" cakes, one for each team, and I am trying to think of a another dessert that can be for people who don't necessarily like cake for dessert. Pies, cookies, I'm trying to come up with the right thing. Any thoughts -- and I don't think it has to be clever...

  1. On another thread, someone had suggested the 7-layer bars using sweetened condensed milk. They're always a hit.

      It was me. People love these. I am bringing them to the party that I am attending.

    2. Trifle is fairly uncomplicated and I wonder if you could arrange the lady fingers to resemble goal posts. Just a thought ....

      1. Chocolate chip cookies are easy and go over well. Brownies too. You can always jazz them up a little if you want. I never eat cake (unless it's extra special) but if either of these is out, I'll be having a few.

          Yes, I think that my husband would be in agreement with you on this!

        2. oreo truffles would be fun... i know I like to have small bites of things so it is great grab and go dessert

          1. I found a football-shaped cookie cutter in my collection so I'm planning to bring cookies to the Super Bowl pot luck I'm attending.
            I have two thoughts. Gingerbread is almost the color of a football so I could make gingerbread cookies and pipe some white icing for the stitches. Or I could make sugar cookies, ice them with a chocolate glaze and pipe stitches as above. Which do you think would go over best?
