Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. In this special, mid-week roundup, we have 12 super creative Stanley Cup playoff snacks to help you get your game on!

The beginning of the end needs to be properly celebrated.  So if you're hosting a few get-togethers to watch the Stanley Cup playoffs, you better treat your guests right.

When it comes to party snacks, expectations may not be extremely high, particularly when the focus of attention is who will get the oldest existing trophy to be awarded to a professional sports franchise. However, we all know how cool it is to get a few "OMGs" and "yums" when we present our friends, family and the occasional new addition with unexpected, delicious finger food. The whole game-night experience gets a lot better!

So, how about surprising people this year with a pizza cake or a samosa roll-up? Some zucchini chips or buttermilk ranch onion rings, maybe? Or is it loaded baked potato bites what you're craving for? And do NOT forget the dips!

We've got your back, here! Check out the gallery below and get recipes for these and other amazing snacks that FBC members put together in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
