Being from New Orleans, everyone I know was extremely excited about the Superbowl. Also being from N.O., we were also extremely excited about making Superbowl snacks, as down here, the food is just as important as the actual event. So as soon as I saw these, I knew that I had to make them for our party. Of course the cooking part was completely simple, as anyone who's ever made rice krispies treats knows. My ultimate advice for anyone making these: just before you settle down to shape them, take a big spoonful of the still hot cereal/marshmallow/peanut butter mix and enjoy. Really, having that hot, goopy spoonful is the ultimate reward for time well spent in the kitchen. Then, quickly throw the spoon in the sink or you'll eat the entire batch that way. The molding wasn't particularly easy and I found that I had to re-butter my hands for each individual football. If any spot wasn't buttered enough, the marshmallow would immediately stick to it and I'd have to go wash my hands and start over, which made things take too long and by the last 1/4 of the mixture, it had cooled enough to make it even more difficult to mold. The only other issue I had was that instead of regular canned frosting, the grocery-goer bought whipped canned frosting, which was nearly impossible to decorate with. Ultimately, they looked like an impressionist's version of footballs. However, they still tasted fantastic and I will definitely be making these again, though perhaps I'll skip the football shape.
