Big Game Football Field Party Dip from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamitlonBeach (http://everydaygoodthinking.com)

This football field-themed party dip is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your big game party! To make it, use aluminum foil or parchment paper to create three sections in a large serving dish. Fill the center with guacamole and the ends with salsa and cheese dip, creating the outline for a field and two end zones. Then, fill a piping bag with sour cream and use a #2 tip to create the lines on the field. Don’t forget to make a line where the field and the end zones meet.

To make the football, we use a miniature sausage and a couple little strips of shredded cheese. The laces were drawn on with sour cream. We like our ball on the fifty yard line to be fair, but if you have a favorite team, you can give them some extra yardage.

To make the football players, you need olives (we used green and black), baby carrots, mustard and a piping bag with tip (#1). Use a paring knife to trim the olives into the shape of a helmet and gently press them onto the end of a baby carrot until they are secure. Use a piping bag of mustard to draw a face mask onto each carrot. When you have the teams assembled, you can start placing them on the field. Referees optional; if they make a bad call, you can always eat them.

Our goalposts are made with pretzel sticks. White chocolate is the perfect edible glue to hold them together; just melt a few morsels in the microwave until they begin to soften. Let the goalposts dry for about ten minutes on wax paper, then add them to the field. Looks like a first down dip to us. Go ahead and show us your touchdown dance!
