Big Game Treats on the Cheap

Football Fan

I’m not the world’s biggest football fan, but I’ve pretty much mastered the art of making food and desserts for the big game.  Sure, it’d be easier to buy pre-made desserts to serve to your football fans, but if you’re trying to save a little money, avoid the temptation to buy overpriced cookies and cakes decorated for the Super Bowl at your supermarket. You can make them yourself.  And if you’re shaking your head saying “you’re nuts, I’m no Martha Stewart” I promise you can do this.  Here are two easy to make big game treats:

Football Cupcakes: Bake cupcakes and allow them to cool thoroughly. Separate cupcakes into 2 groups. Count out the number of letters in each Superbowl team’s name.  Frost with the team colors, then pipe with white frosting the letters on each team’s name on the cupcakes so when you place them in a row they spell out the team’s name.  If you’re not a cake/cupcake expert- here’s a little piece of advice: put  frosting in a ziploc bag and snip just the tip off one corner of the bag to make your own icing bag.

Fudge Brownie Footballs: Bake a tray of brownies. Allow to cool. Cut tray into quarters and remove entire piece, section by section from pan. Use a drinking/juice glass, depending on size you want, place the mouth of glass over brownie. Position glass so side and top are just at edge of section, press one side of the glass to cut the top of your football. Flip your piece and repeat on opposite side of brownie, creating your brownie football shape.  Decorate by piping laces with white frosting. Repeat with remaining section of brownie.
