Hosting a Super Bowl party typically means breaking out the hot wings, ordering pizzas, and serving an over-the-top spread of dips, drinks, and desserts. While we're all for a manly, low-maintenance atmosphere (Beer on the porch? Fine by us!), sometimes it's good to dress up the party a little, and what better way that with a centerpiece or party favor that you can eat?

We love these festive cookie cutters from Ann Clark,"The Cookie Cutter People from Vermont." Make her simple sugar cookie dough recipe and then use the sizable football-themed cutters (shaped like a football, a jersey, and a helmet) to make man-sized cookie portions. The best part? Each cutter has a handle on top, which makes creating a small legion of helmets during a commercial break completely possible. Frost with her simple five-ingredient icing recipe and decorate in your team's colors.

This delicious cookie is a great basic chocolate chip recipe, but also offers six flavor variations including White Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Cookies and Almond-Toffee Cookies. Before you start, read Top 10 Cookie Secrets for no-fail tips on baking.

Whatever dough and icing combination you choose, make your cookies game-ready using the fun cutters. Frost the cookies in competing colors and let your guests votes with their appetites.
