Cauliflower Wings

Cauliflower wings may be the best appetizer for your next big game celebration because they are low in calories, high in fiber, and of course, tasty! You can coat your cauliflower wings in any type of sauce you desire, but today I’ll be sharing a buffalo cauliflower wing recipe. The ingredients you will need to make this recipe are cauliflower, oil or butter, hot sauce, garlic powder, and flour.

To prepare your cauliflower wings, first coat all of your cauliflower florets with oil. In a large bowl or Ziploc bag, combine the flour and garlic powder. Toss the oiled floret pieces into the bowl or bag, and begin shaking. In a separate bowl, combine melted butter and buffalo sauce. Dip each piece of cauliflower into the mixture, and place them on a baking pan. After all cauliflower have been nicely coated with flavor, place the baking pan into the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.

Cookiedilla

The Cookiedilla is the perfect sweet treat for game time. The three ingredients you will need to create this masterpiece of a dessert are marshmallow fluff, chocolate chip cookie dough, and chocolate chips. Feel free to adjust these ingredients based off of your personal favorites. A few other great alternatives to use in this recipe would be peanut butter, hazelnut spread, or caramel sauce.

To create the Cookiedilla, first heat your oven to 350 degrees. While your oven is preheating, divide your cookie dough into two large balls. Flatten each ball into a disk shape, and place it onto a pan. Bake the cookies in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden. After the cookies have cooled, begin spreading the marshmallow fluff and chocolate chips on the bottom of one cookie. Place the cookies together in a sandwich formation, and put it back into the oven. After 3-4 minutes, you Cookiedilla will be ready to serve!

Bacon Avocado Fries

The first step you will take to create the bacon avocado fries are to slice each avocado into 8 equally sized wedges. Wrap each wedge in a strip of bacon. Before placing all of your wrapped avocado pieces on a baking pan, spray it with oil. Place the baking sheet into the oven for 8-10 minutes at 425 degrees. After you remove the slices from the oven, serve them warm with ranch.

Buffalo Chicken Dip
