How to Make Arctic Buzz Football Party Desserts

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the people beer-drinking
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
It’s the hap-happiest season of all”

Fun fact: “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” was originally a song written about football season – they just changed some words to make it about Christmas also. 

Just kidding. But for real you guys, football season is HERE. Football season means football parties. Football parties mean eating all the wings and drinking all the beer until you’re uncomfortably full. Being uncomfortably full? Absolutely does not mean there isn’t room for dessert, especially when there’s alcohol involved.

Here are some dessert ideas for when your beer buzz needs a little boost towards the end of the game.
