We’re excited to celebrate with friends and watch Super Bowl XLV, and to get the kids in the spirit and prepare for our guests we had some fun preparing yummy snacks with Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods found at Martin’s stores. We’re sharing them here with you so you can create your own fun memories; please share your ideas with us, too!
Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods Cornbread and Gingerbread shapes: All that’s needed is a cutting board, fun cookie-cutter shapes and some delicious cornbread and/or gingerbread—we tried both. Kids choose their shapes—from footballs to a bunny rabbit—and cut out their own snacks. Voila!
Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods White House Roll individual sandwiches: to make the easiest and yummiest snacks ever, we let the kids choose what they wanted on their rolls. My little kid chose grape jelly, her big brother peanut butter, and our big boy chose cheese slices which we melted by slipping the sandwich onto a baking sheet under the broiler. They loved making their own choices!
Ukrop’s Frosted Cupcake decorating: We took the Richmond-famous cupcakes (now known around the country!), undecorated, and made our own little masterpieces. Team colors would be a fun addition, although we chose valentine and pink as our little princess typically gets her own way in this arena.
For decorations, kids can make their own paper football chains and even have a toss game where they “win” small prizes for having the longest throw outside before the big game—have fun with it!
