I am sorry I didn’t post this yesterday before the Grey Cup, but I didn’t have time because, I had my own championship tackle football game. We use this recipe every time I have a big football game. I found it at Save on Foods last year before my playoff game, and we made it. It was delicious. I hope you like it.
Rice Krispies Footballs
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
1/4 cup unsalted butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp butter, softened
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup icing sugar
- Melt butter in a Dutch oven or a large heavy-bottomed sauce pan set over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows and cocoa; stir until melted. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and cereal and stir until well coated; cool slightly.
- With buttered hands, shape into footballs, about 1 1/2 by 3-inch (4 by 7.5 cm each).
- Using electric beaters, beat cream cheese with butter and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in icing sugar until smooth. Scape into small re-sealable plasic bag; snip corner.
- Pipe icing to resemble the stripes and laces on each football.
Thanks and enjoy.
