What’s the one word that comes to mind when you think of fall? At my house, it’s FOOTBALL! We’re celebrating the return of football season with lots of good food and drink, including Mississippi Mud Fondue and many of my 29 Best Game Day Recipes.

Looking for something different to serve at your next tailgating party? My Mississippi Mud Fondue is requested time and time again by my family and friends. It's easy to make and only requires 4 ingredients.

Sports Is Life (at my house)

I remember when my son was finally old enough to play on a football team for the very first time. He was around five or six years old and we could barely see him underneath the shoulder pads and helmet. He was on the offensive team and as soon as he saw the other team running towards him, he turned around and ran the other way. I laughed until I cried.

These days, the entire family gets together for fall football, fun, and lots of fab food. I try to incorporate a few new recipes so that I’m not always serving the same thing over and over. Mississippi Mud Fondue is one recipe that my family never gets tired of.

Fondue is Back!

Fondue was trendy back in the ’70s when I was a mere child. I think it’s a trend we need to revive and once you taste my Mississippi Mud Fondue, you’ll completely agree.

I actually do have a fondue pot – somewhere.  I’m searching for it high and low. Where can that thing be? No worries – my small slow cooker is just the thing I need to keep my fondue warm.

If you’ve ever tasted a Mississippi Mud Cake, you’re gonna love this dip. If you haven’t, your taste buds are about to go wild.

To make Mississippi Mud Fondue, you only need four ingredients – heavy cream, milk chocolate morsels, marshmallow créme, and vanilla extract. That’s it.

Bring the cream to a boil on medium-high heat. Turn the heat down to low and add the other ingredients. Mix until smooth and creamy.

Dipper Ideas

Of course, you’ll need some dippers. I like to serve this fondue with brownies, graham crackers, and Wise Ridges Original potato chips. One rule: No double dipping!

Food Table

It’s time to set up the food table.

Sweet & Salty

When you dip the potato chips into the Mississippi Mud Fondue, it’s the perfect bite. The saltiness and crispiness of the chip coated with the chocolate/marshmallow dip are one of my all-time favorite snacks.

You’ll also need plenty of beverages to go along with your tailgating spread. My family’s favorites are Diet Coke® and Sprite.

My local Family Dollar has everything I need for my fall football parties. It’s only five minutes away, so if I happen to forget an item, one of my 20-something-year-old sons is always happy to run to the store. They’re so good like that.

I definitely agree with you that fondue needs to make a comeback – especially if it’s of the chocolate variety 🙂 I am going to have to try your recipe. It sounds perfect for when we have friends over to play cards.

Dairy free so I can’t eat the fondue, but I could certainly have some fun with that quiz!! I’d likely lose, but at least it gets everyone involved

This would be so perfect for a football party or Super Bowl party! I love the whole idea of that dip in those potato chips. It gives at salty sweet taste all in one bite.

I just love your quiz! Football season is our favorite time of the year and it’s even better because it’s a fall and winter sport! We just bought new stadium seats this weekend for the high school games and planning our NFL schedule too!
I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who enjoys potato chips dipped in chocolate. Your fondue sounds scrumptious! I’ll take a Sprite Zero with mine!

My husband and I used to be a Football fanatic long time ago.Ever since we moved out of State and and having disconnected with cable company due to there poor customer service. We kinda not updated anymore about what was going on esp. on our Team that we used to cheer Buffalo Bills. However I missed the party with friends and the foods. I may copy your idea of a football team party .
