Watching a great football game is the best excuse to break any diet and truly enjoy yourself, making Super Bowl parties one of North America's favourite festive gatherings.

Last year, approximately 111.3 million U.S. viewers made the Super Bowl the most watched program in television history, and this year's match-up of the Ravens vs. the 49ers promises to bring out (or should we say, shut in?) an equally impressive number of devout fans.

And we almost guarantee that, along with a slew of beverages, the usual snacks — chips, dips, pizza and buffalo wings — will also be making an appearance. After all, the Super Bowl is the second-largest food consumption holiday of the year. So on Feb. 3, whether you're cheering with a few friends or a large group, this week's How To video — a football stadium "snack-down" — promises to score a touchdown your guests will never forget.

Along with the snack items suggested, like guacamole, sausages and cheese, the only special equipment you'll need are things you probably already have on hand, like heavy-duty aluminum foil, a large baking pan and a few pastry tools. Depending on your favourite team, you can also get more creative with the cuisine (lake trout sandwich from Baltimore, anyone?). And of course, there is some leeway when it comes to ingredients, because your guests' palates and preferences are the most important thing to consider.

Super Bowl tends to allow fans and foodies alike to get creative with their dishes — like say, putting together football stadiums made mostly out of out of meat or a 47-Layer Dip that will test even the hardiest of digestive systems. Last but not least, there's always the craziest Super Bowl food concoctions that could be worth an attempt.
