The Big Game is fast approaching, here is a super easy and delicious game-day snacks board for you

Snacks are an essential part of the Big Game experience, and there's nothing like the combination of sweet and savory, spicy and salty, to munch on while watching the game and make it even more enjoyable. 

Whether you're hosting a party or just looking for a fun way to celebrate, here are some recommendations for you that are sure to please.

First of all, to create a successful snack board you need to:

  • Choose a platter, serving tray, or cutting board to hold your snacks. Keep in mind the size based on the number of guests.

  • Grab bowls or ramekins to hold some of the snacks, and plan the layout.

  • Select a variety of snacks (see my recommendations below)

  • Arrange the snacks in an attractive way paying attention to color and textures. Add some fun elements to make the board visually appealing.
