Its sad this recipe isnt getting the credit it deserves. It was easy and my family is requesting it again for thanksgiving. I made the recipe as is but didnt make it into football shapes because I'm not that talented.
Cute idea! Though didn't care for the cocoa crispies/peanut butter in this recipe. Next time I will try a traditional rice krispie treat recipe and add food color to the marshmallow mixture to achieve the brown color. Making the football shapes is SUPER easy: cup your hands together with the mixture, massage and press - and voila! It will come out in a football shape. I put icing in a ziploc bag and cut a corner to dispense the frosting for the "stitches" on the football.
Made these for a Super Bowl party today and they were a big hit. People not only loved the cute football shapes, but they enjoyed the peanut butter flavor too. I doubled the recipe and it worked well, but I do think that it needed a bit more cereal. The regular Rice Krispie treat recipe calls for 6 cups of cereal for a single batch, not 4. I ended up putting 9 cups of cereal into a double batch and it still wasn't quite enough. I'll probably put in 10 next time.
I didn't think I would like these, because I am not a fan of peanut butter--but I totally did! I brought them to a bar during football playoffs and they were a HUGE hit with everyone. SO easy to make as well. I am making them for a super bowl party, and I am going to try and figure out a way to make them more chocolaty (either chocolate chips or cocoa powder?). Oh also, I used this recipe for the frosting, and just squeezed it out of a ziplock bag that I had cut the corner off of.
These were delicious... it wasn't easy shaping them but I just sprayed my hands with Pam between each one. I never really got them as good as I wanted but the taste made up for it! The peanut butter was a great addition... if I find a good football shape mold I'll make these all the time.
These were so delicious and very easy to make! And I had fun making them! These chocolatey snacks are much better than regular rice krispies!
They are super cute and work great for my tailgating party. I didn't add peanut butter and they still taste great. I used PAM on my hands and an ice cream scoop and that helped me. :]
I made these for an office "tailgate" party and they were quite the hit! I used an oval cookie cutter to make the basic shape and pinched the ends so they would look like footballs.
