Recipe by Tinkerbell
READY IN: 45mins


  • 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)


  • In large pan or dutch oven, melt 3 Tablespoons of the butter over low heat. Add marshmallows & stir until completely melted.
  • When marshmallows are melted & smooth, turn off heat & add almond extract. Stir well.
  • Remove from burner & add Cocoa Krispies. Stir till combined.
  • Spray inside of a large bowl & turn the mixture out into it. Allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Lightly grease your fingers with the 1 Tablespoon of butter and then pull off about a 1/4 cup of Krispie mixture.
  • 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.
  • 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.
