Chocolate Football Crispies

Still need a last minute idea for the big game? I thought these were super cute, and so easy to make! These crispy little chocolate treats would be a hit with anyone!

Just a reminder that my Blogiversary giveaway ends Tuesday night, click here for details!


Chocolate Football Crispies

  • 6 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • ½ c. light corn syrup
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 4 c. Cocoa Pebbles Cereal (I used Cocoa Crispies)
  • white decorating gel

Microwave chocolate, corn syrup and butter in large microwaveable bowl on high 2 1/2 min., stirring after 1 ½ min. Blend in vanilla. Add cereal, mix well.

Let cool 10 min and then shape into football shapes on parchment with moistened hands. Let cool completely and use decorating gel to add lacings. Let stand until gel is firm.

These look very easy but very yummy! I might be going to a SB gathering last minute tomorrow, this would come in handy to make quick.

Just made these for the Super Bowl party we are going to tomorrow. I found that using a large spoon made it easier to form the football shape!
