GIANT Chocolate Rice Crispy Football for Game Day

Are you ready for some football? After a 2 year hiatus, I’ve once again joined my family’s Fantasy Football league and scored Adrian Peterson in the draft (ya, I don’t really know who he is yet, but soon will as we’ll be spending 16 weeks together!) We’re getting ready for game night by making some fun football snacks for our home team! Here are some cute mini footballs and a GIANT football created from Rice Crispy treats.

Supplies for Rice Crispy Football Treats:

  • Rice Crispy recipe – I used chocolate flavored Crispy Rice cereal, but you can simply color your marshmallows with brown food coloring when making these treats. Or make them in their natural color with different colored frosting for the laces.
  • plate or tray
  • white cookie icing – the kind for writing
  • toothpick
  • small triangle paper

1. Make your recipe, then set it out on a piece of wax paper or onto your tray. I placed my treats into a fun giant plastic football tray/bowl I had, but you can simply place it on a tinfoil lined tray.

2. Using your white cookie icing, draw the shape of the football laces onto the football. Mine turned into a little wobbly line, as the cereal isn’t flat.

3. We added a fun green paper triangle taped to a toothpick, with the words “Go Team” on it, to our football.

Now the team is ready to eat. I’m betting that my kids are more excited about eating these football treats than watching my star player, Adrian Peterson, make a football catch!

  1. I just spent a week celebrating the return of football over on my blog – we love to celebrate the season!!! I’ve seen these rice crispy treats all over the web and haven’t tried them yet. I am going to have to rectify that this coming weekend :)

  2. Rice crispy treats are my 17 year old daughter’s favorite treat to make & it just so happens that she loves football!(not sure who she got that from) I am going to forward this on to her because she loves to cook! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!

  3. This is such a cute idea–if the rain lets up, I’m going to the store to get the ingredients!

    We cheer for the Minnesota Vikings (so we know a lot about AD! He’ll do great things for your fantasy football team! It’s fun to see other wives involved in FF… I thought it was so fun when I did it last year…and I actually beat out all the boys and won the league!)
