Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner! Here are some fun snacks and appetizers from Trader Joe’s to make your party stand out.

First off, buffalo chicken nachos will be the star of the show at any party. They’re also very easy to make. Start with layers of Trader Joe’s white corn tortilla chips and their spicy buffalo cheddar cheese and top with their grilled chicken strips. You can also add Trader Joe’s hot and sweet jalapenos, red onion and cotija cheese to really make them stand out.

Next, a charcuterie board for your guests to graze on is highly recommended. Start with Trader Joe’s charcuterie set of spicy, uncured meats including beef, pork and lamb. You could also add additional meats such as prosciutto or salami. Next, add a variety of cheeses such as the Trader Joe’s New Zealand sharp cheddar, their caramelized onion cheese or their Saint Andre brie. Top it off with a variety of crackers including pita chips and Trader Joe’s seedy crackers. Lastly, add fruits, jams and/or nuts to fill the board. Arrange it on a tray and it is ready to serve.

No Super Bowl Sunday is complete without sliders. Trader Joe’s makes it easy by introducing their mini cheeseburgers. You can store them in the freezer and pop them in the oven or microwave before your guests arrive. They’re also very versatile and easy for each person to customize using condiments such as the Trader Joe’s dill pickle chips, their aioli garlic mustard sauce or their ketchup with black truffle.

Another crowd-pleaser is Trader Joe’s chili-lime chips. They are a sour and spicy snack that you can serve alongside any appetizer. Setting a bowl of these out as well as some peanut butter filled pretzels and cacio e pepe puffs makes for a perfect snack to grab as people move around the room.

Lastly, you could end with serving something sweet towards the end of the game. Trader Joe’s JoJo cookies are a cute and delicious end to the night. There are a variety of cookies to choose from, such as chocolate, vanilla and pumpkin. For more variety, you could also serve their dark chocolate covered almonds or cherries or their Scandinavian Swimmers candies.
