Football treat board, or chocolate board. However you want to make it, this treat board is sure to be a crowd pleaser. I love using the 4 foot board from The Harvest Board for large parties.

I made this specific board for my son’s little league football banquet. The board was able to feed over 75 people. The amount of compliments I received about each treat was overwhelming! If you recreate this board, I know you will have the same success.

I am planning on recreating this board again for the upcoming Super Bowl. Wouldn’t that just be perfect? I will take any reason to celebrate.

How do you store the leftovers?

Each type of treat has a slightly different storage recommendation, here they are:


You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 5-7 days. If you would like to keep them longer, you can freeze them. Place them in a freezer ziplock bag or wrap in tinfoil and freeze for up to 3 months. When you want to enjoy them, just let the brownie sit on the counter until they come back to room temperature.


These must be stored in the fridge. If left on the counter for more than 1 day, the cookies first lose their slight crunch and then go stale very quickly. Make sure you always store your treats in an airtight container so that they do not absorb other flavors and scents from around them. You can keep macarons in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you want them longer, they can also be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. These delicate cookies only take about 15-20 minutes to come back to room temperature from the freezer.

Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies can be stored in an airtight container on your counter for up to 5 days. They can, like all the others, be frozen for up to 3 months. Just store in an airtight container and bring back to room temperature before enjoying.

Can you make these treats ahead of time?

Absolutely! Whenever I want to do a variety board, I always like to break up the baking tasks across a few days. All of these treats can be made ahead of time. Here is how I broke up the treats:


I first started with the macaron shells, these are best to make, freeze and then fill right before serving for optimum freshness. I made the shells for this dessert board a week or two ahead of the actual event.

Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies were made around the same time I did the macarons. In fact, I always have unfrosted sugar cookies in my freezer because they keep so well in there. That way I am ready on a moments notice for a potluck or party, I can pull out some frozen cookies, whip up a quick batch of Sugar Cookie Frosting and done!

Whenever I make a batch of sugar cookies, I make sure to double the amount I need to keep my freezer supply fully stocked.


Well you can freeze brownies, I like to present my desserts at their peak freshness. Freezing macaron shells and unfrosted sugar cookies do not effect the freshness what so ever, but I can’t say the same for brownies. Because of this, I made the brownies the night before the football banquet that I served it.


The Chocolate Frosting for the macarons and brownies was made the day before I served the football treat board as well as the Sugar Cookie Frosting. I frosted the cookies and brownies and stored the macarons in the fridge overnight while the sugar cookies and brownies sat in an airtight container on the counter.
