Everyone knows that a big game like tomorrow's requires the best finger-food there is. While chicken wings, pizza, and pigs in a blanket never fail to satisfy, we're going a different route this year (and we suggest you do too!)

These one-of-a-kind, easy to make recipes will be sure to make you jump up and down tomorrow night! Okay, the scores of the game might make you jump up and down the most, but we definitely suggest you give these a try! 

1. Easy pretzel bites

Replace the chip bowls with pretzel bites this year! They're bite-sized, easy to make, and sure to please everyone (try it with your favourite dips to gain extra taste points with your guests!)

2. Pizza charcuterie board

Think charcuterie board, but pizza style. This recipe is so simple, it doesn't even require instructions! Just gather your favourite ingredients to make mini pizzas and present it on a large board for your guests to pick from. Ours includes mini pita breads, pizza sauce, pepperoni, peppers, and, of course, CHEESE!

3. Jalapeno poppers

Spicy peppers, cream cheese, and bacon... do we really need to say more? This recipe is a must if you have a thing for spicy foods and are willing to try something a bit different for the big game this year! We can't promise you won't become obsessed with this recipe though...

4. Cauliflower wings!

Are those chicken wings? Cauliflower wings? I guess we'll never know! All jokes aside, this cauliflower wings recipe is the perfect (and vegetarian) alternative to the classic chicken buffalo wings. They're just as crunchy, spicy, and delicious! Plus, they're all the rage in restaurants these days.

5. Fresh mango guacamole

Your tortilla chips will surely need a buddy during tomorrow night's game. Instead of the salsa & queso, go with this fresh mango guacamole instead! What we like about this recipe is its perfect balance of sweet and salty (and it's super easy to make, so really, there's no excuse for you not to try it!)
