In either case, whip up a batch of these delectable chocolate cakes, topped with chocolate-dipped marshmallow frosting, and get super festive by opting for team-colored sprinkles or even plastic toppers. Whether you’re hosting or just bringing sweets, you’re sure to be the MVP of the snack collection.

P.S. We know Green Bay’s not in the Super Bowl. Give us some leeway!
