Touchdown Team Brownie

(Family Features) - Whether it's tailgating at the stadium or huddling around the flat screen TV, everyone needs a game plan: a winning menu to keep armchair quarterbacks fueled through all four quarters of the big game.

Kick off the festivities with easy-to-serve, easy-to-eat pre-game nibbles like chips and salsa, veggies and dip plus plenty of liquid libations. Fans will cheer at halftime when they're offered favorites like make-your-own sandwiches, hearty chili and coleslaw to tackle their hunger. Rely on the supermarket deli/prepared foods sections and purchase some or all of the foods ready to serve ... that way everyone can enjoy the game instead of spending time in the kitchen.

Make the final quarter memorable with a fabulous dessert ... Touchdown Team Brownie.  It's so easy to bake and decorate, plus it can be made a day in advance of the game. Bake the brownie (use a mix for convenience) in Wilton's first and ten football pan, then simply add the zigzag stripes and outline stitching with Wilton's ready-to-use white decorator icing. It's a winner! Cheers all around!
