Football Krispy Treats

I needed an easy, kid-friendly dessert for Super Bowl Sunday. Rice Krispy treats always seem to go quickly, so I did two regular batches and one chocolate by adding 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to the melted butter and marshmallow goo. I didn't have a football cookie cutter, so I improvised with a tin can by bending it into the shape needed. After cooling, I coated the tops with melted chocolate chips and then piped laces with melted white chocolate. Yummy! (If you are wondering, that IS a Terrible Towel in the background.)

Yum! I want one right now. What'd you do with the scraps?

I drizzled the scraps in the leftover chocolate and those disappeared quickly. I also drizzled stick pretzels because I had that much melted chocolate leftover. I have a sweets hangover.

These are so cute, Anne! What a great idea! I bet they were delicious, too.
