cookie dough footballs covered in chocolate

chocolate covered cookie dough footballs - Super Bowl food ideas

Okay, our Patriots aren’t in the Superbowl. And while that vastly decreases my interest in the game, I still wanted to make something fun and¬†themed. These chocolate covered cookie dough footballs are the best nibble for an game day party. They’re bite-sized (so healthy, one might say) and festive without starting up that team rivalry. And to add a turf feel, I drizzled coconut with green food coloring to mimic grass. See full details and recipe below.

  6. Refrigerate balls for about 30 minutes, or until firm.
  7. Melt chocolate candiquick in a bowl until smooth.
  8. Using a toothpick (or the fork method mentioned above) dip the footballs into the melted chocolate, then tap to remove excess.
  9. Place balls back onto parchment lined cookie sheet to harden.
  10. Once the balls are dry, melt the vanilla candiquick.
  11. Pipe the vanilla candiquick onto the footballs to create the strings. Allow to dry.
