have been working on.. It's Below the recipe.
Please link up & show us your talent. We can't
wait to see...

Are you thinking about what kind of foods
to have at your next get together..whether a
"Superbowl Party" or just having friends
over anytime..???

You don't want to be in the
want to be with family & friends..& enjoying
the memories your making. So with that being
said I am going to be giving you a fun recipe that
hopefully makes a 'Touchdown" at your next get

You can make these the day before. These Chocolate
Brownie Footballs are adapted from Betty Crocker.
Thanks Betty.

1 box of your favorite brownie mix (Lg size)
(water, eggs, & vegetable oil called for on mix)

1 tub of white frosting or icing in a tube

Chocolate Ganache
4 (1 oz) semi-sweet chocolate squares
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
3 Tbsp. butter

1) Heat oven to 350F. Line a 9"x 13" pan
with foil so that foil extends about 2" over
short sides of pan. Grease bottom only of
foil with cooking spray. SEE BELOW

2) Make & bake brownies as directed on box for a
9x13 pan using water, oil & eggs. COOL for 1 hr.

3) When cooled take out of pan with foil & flip over on to surface (breadboard, etc.) for cutting out the

Peel off aluminum foil and make a template of a
"Football" (abt 3 1/2" x 2") SEE BELOW

If this is all you want to do then just use white icing
to put "Laces" on the football & your done.
4) If you would like to make a ganache then proceed
with taking 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream, 3 Tbsp.
butter getting it hot on stove. (watching to not burn)
Add semi-sweet chocolate squares & blend together
to make ganache. SEE BELOW

It should have a beautiful glisten.

5) BELOW shows the way I did the dipping.
I hand dipped one side of the brownie & put on
cookie rack to dry.
Then after they have dried I put white frosting
into a icing bag (with a small round hole tip) &
decorated the footballs with "Laces." I was happy
with the way they turned out..and they were a big
hit with friends & family.
