Sweet Thursday: Super Bowl Sunday Treats

As promised, here are some sweet snacks for Super Bowl Sunday. Personally, I’ve been in a baking mood lately. Last week I made some brownies, and a few days ago I baked a cake, and for Super Bowl Sunday, this weekend I’ll probably make some football cookies. I have some frozen cookie dough that we ordered from a school kid, and several weeks ago I bought a huge set of cookie cutters, and I haven’t yet found the time to try them out, so it seems like a good time to do so. (although I wouldn’t mind having a pie or a cheesecake this weekend either….hmm. Well, I’ll let you know how it goes.)
Anyway as usual, links to the original source are underneath the picture. And I’ve also included the recipe for Chocolately Football Bites from Kraft. This recipe reminds me of Cocoa Pebbles/Rice Krispie treats, except it’s made with corn syrup instead of marshmallows. And this is another good recipe that you could easily change, using a different cereal or simply molding the snacks into a different shape or using different decoration. Enjoy!

    Brownie footballs sound great – so cute! I was looking for something fun and easy to bring to a party on Sun – that might do it!
