Game Day Snacks: Buffalo Chicken Dip & Nutella Football Cupcakes

It's Game Day!! 

(It's also Downton Day - I feel I should point that out as well)

I hope you had a chance to check out my 
SuperBowl Sunday Menu from Friday.

But it's Game Day. 

And maybe you are still in need of some last minute, 
super fast recipes for the big party tonight. 

No shame. 
I know how time gets away from us. 

So take a deep breath and relax. 
I've got you covered. 
You can throw this Buffalo Chicken Dip
