Pin It for next year! I always have a dozen party ideas swarming in my head, but when it comes down to the wire, the easy ones usually win! These football brownies were a last minute edition to Sunday's Super Bowl line-up, but nearly every kid under age 80 took one!
Look how easy they are.
Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownies are my go-to basic brownie mix because A) They are super moist and delicious and B) I can get them at Costco. Sigh. I love Costco.
This is my half-sheet pan. It's the perfect size for a big batch of brownies. I mixed together a triple batch of 8x8 inch pan brownie batter and poured it all in. The parchment-lined pan sprayed with cooking oil is the key to removing the brownies later. It's kind of like wearing belts and suspenders. You just don't want your brownies to stick to the pan.
While the brownies are baking, locate your football cookie cutter. I know you have one. If not, draw a template and cut it out. If you are cutting out the brownies with a knife rather than stamping them with a cookie cutter, use a PLASTIC knife. I don't know the science behind why the brownie doesn't stick to the knife, it just doesn't.
If you are using your football cookie cutter, spray it with cooking spray.
Stamp out your footballs and watch all your kids walk by, including your husband, and listen to them say, "What are you going to do all with the scraps?" Watch the horror in their face when you casually say you're just going to throw then in the garbage, but then secretly save them for Brownie Truffles. Valentine's Day is just around the corner!
Using melted white chocolate, pipe an outline and some football laces.
How cute is that?
