Sports and food, two of my favorite things!  With the big game approaching, it's one of our last excuses to indulge in all the goodness game watching has to offer.  I'll be home gating, so I figured I'd start brainstorming some new game day snack ideas.  I wanted to change things up from the traditional game day wings and dips, although those are always a must.  I figured there's got to be some way to throw in some different snacks for the big game that are quick and can feed plenty, so here's what I came up with for some different game day party snack ideas.

Exactly.  Everyone, so you can't go wrong.

butterfinger ice cream cookie sandwich recipeWHAT YOU NEED :: To make the Butterfinger ice cream cookie sandwich, you will need a pack of the new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups, sugar cookie dough (I buy the mini precut squares), and ice cream (vanilla or vanilla with Butterfinger is best)!
