Football Treats

28 Jan

I made both of these in a hurry before the NFC Championship. The cupcakes especially were pretty sloppy (sorry), but you get the idea.

FOOTBALL TRUFFLES

The popular and easy “oreo ball” recipe:
Mix 8 oz. softened cream cheese with 3 – 4 cups crushed oreos.
Shape into “footballs” and dip in chocolate (These are most often covered in semi-sweet chocolate, but I used milk chocolate this time.)

Refrigerate one hour to set up.
Makes about 48.

FIELD GOAL CUPCAKES

On wax paper, I hardened melted chocolate (ever so sloppily) on pretzels to make goal posts. The football is a chocolate covered raisin, striped with frosting.
