Still haven’t figured out what to bring to that Super Bowl party? How about scrumptious chocolate and peanut butter – shaped like footballs???  These are a favorite at my house and a perfect festive touch for the big game. 

It’s a good idea to pick up some strawberries while you’re at it because there is always some extra melted chocolate just waiting for a strawberry to be dipped!

Please comment and let me know what you think. Please share your photos … of these or any of your favorite Super Bowl themed foods…

Ingredients
Peanut butter mixture
Chocolate dip coating
Icing
Servings: footballs
Instructions
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together peanut butter and butter. Stir in powdered sugar. Once well combined, (mixture should hold together well) shape into a ball and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 20 minutes. While refrigerating, line a tray or cookie sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Now you're ready to create small footballs .... roll into 1 inch balls and then shape into oblong (football!) shape. Place on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for approximately 15 more minutes.
  3. In a medium nonstick sauce pan, melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth (a double boiler may be used, but not necessary). Using a spoon, dip the balls into the melted chocolate, one at a time ...allow excess to drip back into saucepan. Place on waxed paper-lined tray or cookie sheet. Carefully cover and refrigerate to set up.
  4. Once chocolate sets up, use decorator white icing to draw lines to create footballs... depending on your preference (or the decorating tube), you can add just a few lines or several.
Recipe Notes

There are several options for the line decorating... use your favorite white icing, or melted white chocolate, etc. ~ with decorator bag and small pointed tip

Also, these can be simplified and just rolled into balls and dipped in chocolate (used for any occasion) or partially dipped to form buck eyes, etc.

.... whatever your preference, it's your creation ~ Enjoy! :)
