Tips for Planning a Fantastic Hockey Party

Tasty Dips and Salsas for a Hockey Party

Smart Balance features a reduced fat and a regular variety of their sour cream. These are perfect for making your own dips or you can use one of these recipes: Artichoke-Garlic Spinach Dip, White Onion Dip,  or Creamy Avocado-Salsa Verde Dip.

I highly recommend serving Mrs. Renfro’s salsas with some type of chips. The flavors that are available are quite unique and really scrumptious. I honestly did not want to share these as they melted my taste buds to quivering jelly. Don’t let the flavors (Raspberry, Jalapeño, Pineapple, and Habanero) fool you into thinking that they aren’t going to be good, because they are really out-of-this-world.

If you want to serve a more traditional type of salsa, you can use Wholly Salsa in either its garden fresca or natural variety. The natural one is a bit spicier, while the garden fresca is sweeter and chunkier (my favorite by far of these two).

Guacamole is another one of those foods that you either love or you could do without. Not my fav again, but others loved it. One of the really neat things that I like is the way that you can create a mini-hockey rink display using Wholly Guacamole. Use the recipe and directions for Wholly Football Meaty Meal Dip – Wholly Guacamole, but turn it into a hockey display instead. I wholeheartedly suggest that you serve this with their Corazonas, whole grain tortilla chips with a squeeze of lime. These were undoubtedly delicious with a capital D!

Scrumptious Desserts for a Hockey Party

If you have the time to prepare Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats using the recipe for Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® Mini-Footballs, shape them into hockey pucks instead of the footballs. Decorate them with the first letter of your favorite hockey team’s name using decorating frosting in one of your team’s colors.

Cut-out sugar cookies are perfect for hockey-themed parties too! Almost everyone loves the sugary goodness and the hockey shapes are going to add a touch of joviality to the party. Use sugar sprinkles in your team’s favorite colors to decorate the cookies. Visit a specialty kitchen store to shop for cookie cutters with a hockey theme (logos, hockey sticks, hockey pucks, etc) if you do not have any at home.

I received all of the brand-specific foods free except for the Kelloggs Rice Krispies so that I could sample them for the purposes of reviewing their usefulness for sports parties. You might not like all of them since each of us have our own favorites. In fact, some of the products are not my personal favorites while my family loved them. As long as you are having at least a half dozen people at your hockey party, you are sure to find someone who will enjoy each type of food that you put out.
