    **Tinkerbell**'s Note:

    Cute football themed snacks for your next football party! Since I was making mostly adult desserts for our last college ball game, I altered my Valentine's Day Krispie Treat Hearts to make chocolate-flavored, football Krispie treats for the kids. They were a big hit, with kids and adults! My cupcake carrier with the flat bottomed insert only held 15 treats so that's where I stopped counting. Because of that, I guessed here on the total yield. If you try this recipe please feel free to correct me, if needed. :)

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Treats

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 60 marshmallows (or 6 cups mini)
    • 4 drops almond extract (optional, or use vanilla)
    • 9 cups cocoa krispies
    • nonstick cooking spray
    • 1 tablespoon butter (for greasing fingers)
    • 6 ounces white frosting (I used 2 tubes decorator frosting)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In large pan or dutch oven, melt 3 Tablespoons of the butter over low heat. Add marshmallows & stir until completely melted.
    2. 2
      When marshmallows are melted & smooth, turn off heat & add almond extract. Stir well.
    3. 3
      Remove from burner & add Cocoa Krispies. Stir till combined.
    4. 4
      Spray inside of a large bowl & turn the mixture out into it. Allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Lightly grease your fingers with the 1 Tablespoon of butter and then pull off about a 1/4 cup of Krispie mixture.
    6. 6
      Shape into a football. An oval shape that is wide & tall in the center, getting smaller & slightly pointy at both ends. Repeat until all the mixture is used up.
    7. 7
      With frosting tube, pipe one long line, lengthwise, down the top of each football. Then pipe a short line at each end & fill in the center with more short lines to form the football's laces.

      I brought these to a Superbowl party and they were a hit! The marshmallow-rice krispie mixture was pretty sticky, so it was a little difficult to stir mixture. But buttering up my hands to form them into footballs worked great. I'd definitely make these again!
