Desserts are a staple food and a course all its own in the United States. Many people can’t wait to have dessert after they eat their main course. However, the concept of a dessert hasn’t been around all that long. In fact, the first use of the word “dessert” in 1539 referred to the nuts people snacked on after dinner. The word itself is a French word that means “to clear the table.”
Desserts slowly evolved to involve sugar as the rich looked upon having sugar as a status symbol since it was so expensive in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. As our society modernized and frozen foods became popular, desserts entered the scene and became a course on their own.

MUST-HAVE SUPER BOWL DESSERTS
“Let Them Eat Cake!”
Odds are, Marie Antoinette never really uttered these words, and they just became legend that represented how out of touch she truly was with the French populace who were starving in the late eighteenth century. However, the words remain true to this day — just in a different meaning. At your Super Bowl party, you should allow your guest to eat cake if they wish, choosing from an elaborate, football-themed chocolate cake to a more traditional white cake with your team of choice’s name emblazoned on it.
If you still want cake but not the hassle of messing with plates and forks, you can instead make cupcakes. These are easier to eat, invite more grab-and-go eating, and are just as satisfying as a cake.
Football Rice Krispie Treats
Almost everyone loves Rice Krispie treats, especially when they are homemade and in the shape of footballs. Bounce Sporting Club in Chicago reminds you to choose the chocolate Rice Krispies from the store so that your footballs will be the proper color. Proceed as normal making these, with marshmallows and butter, just shape them into footballs and then use cream cheese icing to make the football laces.
Football-shaped brownies are also a great option. They are easy finger-foods and can be made bite-sized. Usually, the smaller the dessert, the better because even those who don’t normally eat desserts will if it’s just one bite.
Cookies are always a hit, especially at a party. If you make chocolate chip cookies, they satisfy those who are looking for just a little bit of chocolate, but a sweet taste. Plus, when warm and soft, chocolate chip cookies are the perfect complement to other Super Bowl foods. You can choose to make nuts, or make some cookies that are gluten-free and nut-free for those with allergies.
Odds are, everyone at your Super Bowl party has had dessert pizza. Here, you are combining a food item that everyone loves (pizza) with dessert. You can customize this Super Bowl dessert to the hilt, using nuts, marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and any other type of topping you can think of, such as sprinkles, M&Ms, and more. Plus, Bounce Sporting Club in Chicago notes that dessert pizza is easy to customize in the logo of the team you are rooting for, and by using sprinkles and colored icing, you can make quite the impressive dessert for your Super Bowl party.
While many people love ice cream, it can quickly become a mess. After all, it melts, and when the game gets close and exciting, odds are, you will forget about it, and the ice cream will melt everywhere, creating a gigantic mess that your dog won’t even want to clean up for you.
Cream puffs are the perfect alternative to traditional ice cream. Stuffed with ice cream (usually vanilla), these bite-sized little goodies are sure to be a hit. With the ice cream contained, even if they sit out for a little bit, they won’t make a huge mess. For an added indulgence, you can dip your creme puffs in chocolate for an extra special treat.
As a company, you want to show your employees appreciation. Furthermore, you want a place to train your employees or a place to make presentations to potential clients.
