Are you ready for football season?

I know here in my home football is a big deal. Sundays are spent glued to the screen, cheering on our favorite teams. So why not make something fun for watching the game?


Football Nutter Butter Cookies

Footballs ingredients:

  • 1 package Nutter Butter cookies
  • 12 oz chocolate candy melts
  • Wax paper

Royal icing ingredients:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 C powder sugar
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Tape down the sides and ends of the wax paper to the cookie sheet.
Using a double boiler melt the chocolate melts, stir often until all of the chocolate is melted.
With a fork dip each cookie into the melted chocolate. If necessary use a spoon to spread the chocolate over the entire cookie both front and back.
Place the dipped chocolate cookies on the lined cookie sheet. Allow them to dry completely about 20+ minutes.

Royal Icing:
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl mixing on medium speed for 4 minutes. If icing isn’t stiff enough, you’ll want to add 1/4 cup powder sugar until stiff. Spoon the icing into piping bags using a #2 tip OR a plastic baggie with a corner snipped (make the hole small!).

Add the stitching on the footballs:
Following the examples in the picture above use the icing to make lines on each end of the cookies. Draw the lines in a curved shape not just a straight line. In the center of the cookie make a draw a short line and then cross this line with three small lines. Allow to dry completely.
