Total time: 5 minutes
- White gel frosting
I mean, what's easier than buying a tray of pre-made brownies and cutting them into football shapes? Use the tube of white gel frosting to make the football laces, let the kids eat the leftovers, and boom. Done. Referee won't be blowing the whistle on this one.
Total time: 15 minutes to make and 2-3 hours to dry and harden
- Semi-sweet chocolate
- White gel frosting
Melt the chocolate. Roll the strawberries in it. Place the strawberries, flat end down, on a sheet of wax paper. After they are dry, use that same tube of white gel frosting to make the football lacing. No flag on this play!
End-Zone Deviled Eggs
Total time: 15 minutes
- 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp. yellow mustard
- Dash of salt & pepper
Cut the eggs in half and remove the yolks. In a separate bowl, mash together the yolk, mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper. Fill the eggs with the mixture. Cut the chives into small pieces to form the laces of a football over the top of the egg half. So delicious it's worth an end zone dance penalty.
Stadium Seating Bean Dip
Total time: 10 minutes
- Guacamole (we used three avocados)
- 1 (15 oz.) can refried beans
- Sour cream
- Cherry tomatoes (optional)
Time to get your Pinterest on! You're going to start your masterpiece with the refried beans. Fill in one end of a 13x9 dish with the beans. Next up: Use the guacamole to make the "field." Leave room at the other end for your salsa (you don't want to do this before the guacamole because the salsa will run everywhere).
Pile up chips in your beans and salsa to make the "people" in the "stands." Put sour cream into a frosting bag (or a plastic zipper bag with the corner cut off) and make the marks and lines on your "field." Have the kids add cherry tomatoes on top as the "players." Gimme a D! Gimme an I! Gimme a ... well just gimme a chip already!
Pro Tip: This dish does not travel well in the car. Make it on site.
