Will your Super Bowl party feel like deja vu all over again?

Sunday also happens to be Groundhog Day. It’s the first time in the Super Bowl’s soon-to-be 48-year history that the Big Game has fallen on Punxsutawney Phil’s big day.

But don’t let that famous furry forecaster overshadow your game plans. For our bowl party, we’re sticking with fumble-proof finger foods; they’re easy on the host and fan friendly, too.

Here are two ideas using won ton wrappers to update old favorites: Jalapeno cheese bites and shrimp poppers. Both appetizers are easy enough for beginning cooks and definite crowd pleasers. Both recipes came courtesy of Nasoya, makers of won ton wraps.

For more recipe ideas, check out our suggestions in today’s Food & Wine section.
