It happens once a year and whether you’re there for the food, the fun or the actual football, these Super Bowl cookies are a crowd pleaser! The Super Bowl is a BIG deal at our house so I’m excited to make this fun platter for the big game! I’ve also found that the Super Bowl is a great excuse for a party, whether you like the football or just enjoy the commercials! So, if you’re a home baker, Super Bowl cookie platters can be a huge seller. For this set, I also intentionally made these very simple and beginner friendly. If you’ve got more advanced skills, feel free to add more detail and get fancy! Either way, this platter is party ready. Let’s kick this off!
I used our go-to vanilla sugar cookie recipe for this platter, which you can find HERE. It’s easy, no-chill, no-spread and oh so yummy. But if you’d like to make a fun flavor for the big game, we’ve got all you can handle HERE. All cutout recipes here are no-chill and no-spread, so pick your favorite flavor!
If you need a fabulous royal icing recipe, our favorite is HERE. We use this daily and it’s never failed us. Easy to make, easy to work with and delicious paired with our cookies; our customers agree!
Cutters & Designs
I am always trying to create impactful designs using simple cutters that can be repurposed for all kinds of occasions and this platter is no exception. Here are the cutters I used for this platter design!
- Football Field Cookie Sticks: I recently fell in love with cookie sticks and they worked out perfect for the football field! There are endless design ideas using cookie sticks so I use them a lot.
- Fan Cookies & Team Color Cookies: I used a simple circle cutter for the sprinkle-covered fan cookies and to also inject some more team colors into the platter. I have a set of nesting circles that I literally use with almost every set. If you don’t have a set of these, I highly recommend!
- Football, Helmet and Trophy Cookies: The cutters I used for these cookies are from an old Wilton set I’ve had for decades. But this set covers all your bases!
I wanted to ensure these Super Bowl cookies were easy enough for any cookie decorator! You’ll see the cookies are simply flooded and the only other details are on the football and field. I use a 12-15 second royal icing consistency for my flooding. And then about a 25-30 second consistency for my piping.
For the fan cookies, I simply flooded white and then spooned the multi-color nonpariels over the cookies.
I also gave the trophy a coat of silver using THIS. Mix a tiny amount of it with a high-proof alcohol like Everclear and you’re good! No worries about using alcohol on a cookie, by the way, since it evaporates and you’re literally using a couple drops worth. Although you can use lemon extract if you’d prefer!
Super Bowl Cookies Presentation
Now obviously you’ll want to tailor your cookie colors to the two teams in the big game! I’m predicting Bengals and 49’ers, but we’ll see!
For this platter, I used the rectangular shaped plastic platter from Dollar Tree, which worked perfectly for the 32 cookies in this set. You could even stack more on here if you wanted. When I make platters like this, I use the Celebrate It brand shrink wrap from Michaels to seal my cookies for freshness. It’s super easy to use and looks very professional, food safe and perfect for parties.
