Sweet vs Savory Recipe Showdown | Wilton Game On SeriesHuddle up, foodies: which team are you on? Team Sweet or Team Savory? OK, OK…I suppose you could be on BOTH teams if you really must. Sometimes it depends on your mood and what you’re craving, too. Here I’ve rounded up all of our sweet and savory game day recipes. Take a look and draft your favorite picks!


TEAM SWEET: BROWNIE CAKE

What’s better than a brownie? A five-layer brownie. Here we’ve used the Easy Layers Pan Set to stack decadent layers of rich brownie surrounded by fresh-whipped buttercream icing; then filled it with mini chocolate morsels and peanut. To finish it off, there’s sweet caramel sauce dripping down the sides. Get the recipe here.
