I'm actually really excited for the this year—and no it's not because Queen B is performing. It's because I can make this dip for my boyfriend and he can finally understand what all the hype has been about for the last few weeks. Ever since we decided to create a bread bowl in the shape of a football as a vessel for a baked dip on , I've been *obsessed* with this idea.

At Delish, we may think of some out-there ideas (say, ), but we do tend to stay away from food that's too cutesy. This football bread bowl is a little cute, but it's also friggin' incredible. Can you imagine taking this thing out of the oven and presenting it to your football jersey-clad friends? Without a doubt, touchdown! 

We made the dip bowl with refrigerated Pillsbury French bread dough (which, in case you're not familiar with, also goes by the name of Carb Crack; it has an addictive subtle sweetness and spot-on fluffiness). We filled the football with this totally delish , which is basically everything you love about spinach-artichoke dip, only with the trendiest leafy green of all time. Whether or not you bake it in a football made of bread, it's a crowd-pleaser. 

Here's how the football bread bowl works: 

1. GET 3 TUBES OF DOUGH

4. TOOTHPICK THE SIDES

5. TRIM EXCESS—AND USE IT FOR FOOTBALL LACES

6. BRUSH WITH EGG WASH

Then you bake at 350 degrees F until lightly golden, fill it with dip, then continue baking until bread bowl is deeply golden and dip is bubbly.
