These are the rules of game food: Classic Super Bowl snacks must be easy to eat with your hands -- and easy to prepare ahead of time, so you can watch the action, too. The recipes here score big on both counts, playing up salty and sweet flavors that make the spread as exciting as the touchdowns. Tequila -- baked into the chicken and poured as shots -- doesn’t hurt, either.

Amp Up the Flavor

Chicken drumsticks are brushed with a citrus-honey glaze, and mustard is baked between flaky pastry and juicy sausage for our take on pigs in blankets.

How to Prepare Pigs in Blankets
