Getting together with friends and family? Here are some super fast and easy snacks that you can make at the last minute — especially if you’re the last-minute host. They’re perfect for a Super Bowl party or anti-Super Bowl gathering for those who are boycotting the New Orleans Saints last-minute “loss” in the lead-up to tonight’s game, supporting Colin Kaepernick for taking a knee for everyone
#ImWithKap or hanging out with your girls just because. Who needs a reason anyway?
From munchies to punches, we’ve included some healthy options, shortcuts and DIY alternatives for the Do-It-Yourselfers on the slides below — even if you’re starting with a bag of raw, frozen wings. Time’s a ticking; let’s go!
Super Fruit Bowl
This is a dish that tastes as good as it looks. You’ll literally use a split pineapple as bowls and fill it with your favorite fruit. Here are suggestions below.
Cut pineapple in half length-wise, keeping leaves intact but slicing through them as shown. Scoop out pineapple from both sides by cutting into one-inch chunks, and set aside in a large bowl. Reserve the pineapple halves to use as containers.
Cut and rinse the other fruit, as appropriate, and mix with pineapple chunks in the bowl. Spoon the fruit mix into the pineapple shells, and arrange on a platter. Garnish with mint leaves, and drizzle with Grand Marnier, if desired.
Serves 8 or more with refills.
