If you make them at home, you can customize your cupcakes with icing that matches your favorite franchise.

If you want the Broncos to win big this Sunday, add orange and blue sprinkles to your cupcake icing.

When it comes time to bring out your Super Bowl desserts, make sure to have a pint or two of your favorite ice cream flavors on hand.

Ice cream is as versatile as it is delicious. It makes a great accompaniment to many of the other desserts that we already mentioned, including brownies and cookies.

To make your guests cheer, set up a ice cream cookie stand where they can add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate to their sugar or chocolate chip cookies. You can also create an ice cream sundae table complete with sliced bananas, chopped nuts, chocolate and caramel syrups, whipped cream, and cherries!
