The Grammy Awards are Sunday, which means by now you’ve probably completed a pool and are poring over updated predictions—or simply bought your weight in tortilla chips and a new pair of roomy sweats for your annual viewing party. We spare no judgments on the latter, as all award shows are best enjoyed with a hefty supply of highly enjoyable foods at the ready. (Sometimes the only way to make sense of Grammy ruling is through multiple pieces of pie.) We’ve pulled together a collection of Grammy recipes from top chefs around the country, as well as a few costume and party ideas for the big night. Prepare yourselves for a full fiesta with our nominee-themed party kit below.
Step one: Supply some rocking snacks.
Bruno Mars-Mallow Shake By Spike Mendelsohn
- 1 16-ounce bag jumbo marshmallows
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups creamy vanilla ice cream
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
1. Preheat the broiler. Reserve 4 marshmallows for garnish.
2. Spread out the remaining marshmallows on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the sheet under the broiler and cook, stirring once or twice, until completely charred, 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Repeat with the remaining 4 marshmallows, but cook just until toasted slightly golden, about 1 minute.
