Victory Is Sweet: Candy Centerpieces for Every Football Team in the Playoffs

We know of something a little sweeter than victory: It's candy. And we mean lots of it.

We know of something a little sweeter than victory: It's candy. And we mean lots of it. This Sunday, when the New England Patriots face the Denver Broncos, and the Arizona Cardinals take on the Carolina Panthers, deck your face-off festivities with colorful candy creations that show your team spirit loud and proud. Even with the mounds of spicy wings, pools of dip and mountains of nachos, these decorations will be the real touchdown at your game-day party, no matter which team you're rooting for.

Calling all  New England Patriots fans! Cheer on this Boston-area team with an all-star red, white and blue candy centerpiece. Spear cherry twist lollipops into cups brimming with blue and white Sixlets. Just don't eat it before your fellow football fans arrive to the viewing party.

If you're a die-hard  Arizona Cardinals fan, cream the competition with the easiest red-and-black treats in the game. Simply dip store-bought chocolate sandwich cookies halfway in melted red-candy coating; immediately dip them in red sprinkles and place on parchment paper until set. Fellow fans will definitely appreciate these sweet snacks come halftime.

Hey, Carolina Panthers fans: Stack these blue-and-white cookie creations against the Arizona Cardinals red-and-black version to see whose team reigns supreme. Roll the same store-bought chocolate sandwich cookies in just the right shade of blue sprinkles, then stack 'em high and proud on game day.

Oh, and even if your team didn't make it to the playoffs this year, we've got candy creations for every major team, and they're all a guaranteed win.
