A Guaranteed Super Bowl Win!
Last year I came up with this recipe just a couple of hours before we headed to my friend’s annual super bowl party. I had all of the ingredients in my pantry and decided to give it a try. Imagine my surprise at how well received it was - the whole thing was gone before halftime! I was bombarded with requests for the recipe and promised to make it my annual contribution. I love fun and easy things to make and this football is both. Some variations would include using brown food coloring for those who don’t like chocolate (I’ve never tried this and you would need to adjust the cereal quantity slightly lower to allow for less marshmallow mixture) and using corn flakes instead of Rice Krispies. I love the corn flake version because it is a little easier to make, but both kinds taste great!
Football Rice Krispies Treat
1 package of marshmallows (mini ones melt faster)
1 TBS vanilla extract
1 cup of chocolate chips - I prefer dark chocolate but any kind will work
6 1/2 cups of plain Rice Krispies or corn flakes
Melt 1/2 cup white chocolate chips; pour into decorating bag (or just a plain Ziploc) cut the corner and pipe onto the football.
*To skip this step - purchase a small tube of white icing at the store - use the circle tip and pipe onto football.
Grease a large piece of waxed or parchment paper. Melt butter over medium heat in a large stockpot, when completely dissolved add marshmallows and vanilla. Once marshmallows are melted, add chocolate, stirring steadily so it doesn’t burn. **Very important** remove from heat before adding dry cereal - gently stir in cereal slowly so the marshmallow mixture coats evenly. Once mixture is combined turn onto prepared wax paper and using a greased spatula, shape into a football. Let shaped football cool for about 30 minutes, and then use white icing or melted white chocolate to decorate laces. Let cool completely before serving, cut into pieces and enjoy!
