And now that the Giants are in the Superbowl, I will be making these again in 2 weeks!! I wanted to post this earlier last week but was afraid I might jinx the Giants. Good thing they pulled it off.
Here is how I made these fun treats:
I started by making chocolate chip cookies in a mini muffin pan.
While they were in the oven I made the little footballs: I printed out a row of small footballs, placed the picture under the wax paper (you can't really see it in the picture, but they are there), melted chocolate candy melts in a decorating bag, and squeezed over the image to form football shapes. Then I melted white candy melts to make the laces.
Once the cookies were cool, I iced them with my favorite buttercream icing recipe:
Mix 1 cup unsalted butter, 3 cups confectioners sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons milk until blended.
Then I dipped the iced cookies in green sugar sprinkles.
To make the cupcake/cookie toppers, I made, printed and cut out these images. Then I cut out larger circles with red cardstock. I taped the NY Giants image to the red circle with a toothpick in between.
