It’s almost Big Game Day and if you’re looking to score with some quick and easy snackage to bring to the shindig, never fear – I got your back with a couple of gems to share. (Check out the “Little Bites and Starters” category for more yummy ideas too!)

Hot Crab Dip

3 oz. cream cheese

1/4 cup mayo

2 tsp lemon juice

2 tsp Old Bay, or other seafood seasoning

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/2 lb crabmeat, fresh or canned

S & P

* (optional – for a kick, add a little hot sauce or sriracha!)

Panko bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix the cream cheese, mayo, lemon juice, Old Bay and cheddar cheese together. Fold in the crab and add a S & P to taste (add hot sauce now if desired).

Spread in a buttered baking dish and top with panko bread crumbs. Bake until golden and bubbly, about 15 minutes.

Serve warm with crackers and celery/carrot sticks.

Salty-Sweet Snack Mix

1/2 cup dark corn syrup

1 stick butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking soda

3 cups chex cereal

3 cups oyster crackers

2 cups mini pretzels

1 cup nuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Boil the corn syrup, butter, brown sugar, salt and vanilla for 1 minute. Add the baking soda. Toss the cereal, crackers, pretzels and nuts with the hot mixture.

Spread on an oiled baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
