The Big Game comes with big appetites, even for the little ones in the house. While some of the grown up favorites might be a fit for the smaller ones in the group, others (like spicy buffalo wings and jalapeno-heavy nachos) might leave the kiddos feeling left out. As our crew grew beyond baby snacks, they wanted to be included in the big spread. What could we make that would give them a spot at the buffet, but was also yummy enough for the grown-ups to nosh on, too? Enter the Cracker Stacker Bar!
