Score With These Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites Super Bowl Snacks

Every year I try to come up with something new in the way of Super Bowl snacks. Sometimes it is a completely new recipe and other times it is just a variation of another. This year, I was challenged to try out Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Rolls in my Super Bowl snacks so I combined a couple recipes into one: Buffalo Chicken Dip and Chicken Pinwheels.

I received a complimentary gift pack as a thank you for posting. All opinions are strictly my own (and those of my kids who chowed down on them).

Clay’s step-dad’s birthday is tomorrow and Super Bowl Sunday the next so I wanted to make something that would be quick, easy and not too costly. Everybody loves Buffalo Chicken Dip but I get tired of serving it with tortilla chips. I decided to stuff it inside the rolls and make individual bite sized “nuggets”.

They turned out great! They were SO easy to make and once your rolls are thawed take less than 30 minutes! I’ll be making these on Sunday to serve as Super Bowl snacks for the guys – and gals.

The kids were my guinea pigs and they love them. Our oldest two said that both the dip inside and the rolls themselves are really good.

I give you: Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites made with Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Dinner Rolls.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites With Rhodes Rolls - Super Bowl Snacks

For this recipe I used 12 Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Rolls and made a quick and easy Buffalo Chicken Dip. (NOTE* If you can’t find the Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Rolls in your area, you can substitute with canned crescent rolls and bake at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown, adding one TBSP of filling to each rolled out roll.) Start by thawing your rolls. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray and place the rolls abut a inch apart. Then spray some plastic wrap with cooking spray and place it over the rolls. Let them sit, at room temperature, for about 3 1/2 – 4 hours. Time may vary slightly based on your room temp. It was about 70 degrees in here and they rose in about 3 hours.

(Printable recipe below)

While your rolls are rising make up your cold Buffalo Chicken Dip. Don’t bake it yet. You can use fresh, cooked and cooled, shredded chicken or canned. Either works great! In a large bowl, mix together 6 ounces cream cheese, 1 cup Ranch dressing, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 2 – 3 TBSP Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce. Mix well. Then stir in your shredded chicken – 12 oz. If using canned, drain well first. Mix all that together and set aside.

Once your rolls have risen, preheat oven to 400°.

On a floured counter, roll individual rolls into a strip, approx 1/4 inch thick. Add 1 spoonful of Buffalo Chicken Dip to flattened roll. Spread evenly. Roll from one end to the other. Cut in half or thirds and place, seam side down onto a greased cookie sheet.

Once all the rolls are on the cookie sheet, spoon the remaining dip into a small casserole dish and bake both it and the rolls for approx. 20 minutes or until rolls are done and lightly browned.

Let cool slightly, then serve! We like to serve the bites along with the dip and used a spoon to spread a little extra onto the bites. Alternatively, serve the Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites as one appetizer and the baked Buffalo Chicken Dip with tortilla chips pita bread or a crusty, sliced baguette along with celery sticks and fresh vegetables and Ranch dip.

Notes

We like to serve the bites along with the dip and used a spoon to spread a little extra onto the bites. Alternatively, serve the Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites as one appetizer and the baked Buffalo Chicken Dip with tortilla chips pita bread or a crusty, sliced baguette along with celery sticks and fresh vegetables and Ranch dip.
NOTE* If you can’t find the Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Rolls in your area, you can substitute with canned crescent rolls and bake at 350 for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown, adding one TBSP of filling to each rolled out roll.

Rhodes has several different types of rolls including these that you let rise, Warm-N-Serve and even dessert rolls like Cinnamon rolls and Orange rolls as well as loaves of bread that you let rise and then bake. These rolls are delicious! They bake up super soft and fluffy. Plop a little honey butter on top of the warm diner rolls and they taste like your favorite restaurant rolls! Mmmmm!!!

The Rhodes website also has a ton of recipes using their bread. Check them out and make up some delicious Super Bowl snacks for your crew!
