Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Footballs Recipe
So, honestly, I don’t watch sports very much. In fact, I didn’t even know who is in the running to play in the Super Bowl. I know, I’m hanging my head in shame – but before you leave in disappointment – I do love watching the Super Bowl! Even if it is just for all the yummy snack foods and (usually) funny commercials. With that said, this year I have been looking for a variety of different foods to snack on while we watch the game.
I’ve already posted my candied bacon footballs, but also wanted something a little more on the sweet side that wasn’t the usual cookies or cupcakes. Thankfully the boyfriend is only allergic to tree nuts and loves peanut butter – I always joke with him that I can deal with not cooking with tree nuts, but if he had been allergic to peanuts we might have been doomed. He also isn’t much of a fan of super sweet treats, so I decided to make a play on the peanut butter cups, balls, bars and pretty much anything with chocolate covered peanut butter that he enjoys. However, if you or someone in your family is allergic to peanuts but not tree nuts, other nut butters will also work just fine in this.
I didn’t have a cookie cutter or anything to mold mine with, so some of mine look a bit more like footblobs. But I think that even if yours turn out a bit more of a blob than balls, you can get the general idea once you get the white chocolate stitchings on. In fact, you could totally forgo the chocolate dip and just put on the stitchings Whenever I make these, I always save out about a dozen because I actually rather like them without any chocolate at all – and you all know just how much of a chocolate lover I am.
This chocolate covered peanut butter footballs recipe itself is very easy to make and kids will also have fun helping. If anything, it’s just a bit time consuming, but it is so worth it!
