Football Rice Krispie Pops

Happy Sunday! Football is a big deal in this house every week. My husband is a sports nut and is usually in a hand-full of fantasy leagues every year. I actually joined him last year, and to everyone's surprise - I won! Who woulda thunk? Obviously I had to join in again this year, I mean I'am the reigning champ and all. 

These are a super easy and totally fun treat to have on game day, because after all, one of the best parts about football watching is all the yummy food, amiright? Give these a try for your next game day get together to add that special festive little touch :) Happy game day!

6 Cups Rice Krispies
1 10 oz. Bag Marshmallows (or 4 cups miniature marshmallows)
3 Tablespoons Butter, plus more for pan
1 Cup Milk Chocolate (I used 1 cups worth of Hershey's Kisses)
1/2 Cup Almond Bark
12 Cookie Sticks
Football Shaped Cookie Cutter

Line a 15 1/4" L x 10 1/4" W cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and generously grease with butter; set aside.

In a large pot over medium heat, melt your butter and then add in your marshmallows and continuously stir until they are all melted and then pour in your rice krispies and quickly mix until they are all evenly coated in marshmallow. Transfer mixture onto your greased cookie sheet spread out flat. * I like to rub a stick of butter on the back of a spatula and use that to press the mixture down so it doesn't stick. Let mixture set for 10 minutes.

Take your cookie cutter and cut out your footballs. You may need to run some butter around the edges of the cookie cutter after you cut a few because some treats will start to stick to the cutter. Gently stick a lollipop stick into the bottom of each treat, going almost halfway up into them. Set the treats aside.

Melt your milk chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until fully melted. Transfer to a sandwich bag, snip off one of the corners and pipe your chocolate onto each krispie treat. You can just spread it with a knife but I wanted them to be as clean looking as possible. Place in the fridge for about 15 minutes to let the chocolate set.

Melt your white chocolate in 30 second intervals until fully melted and transfer it into a sandwich bag and snip off one of the corners just like with the milk chocolate. Pipe on the "laces" of the football. Let set. 

Store in a airtight container for up to 4 days or individually wrap them in cellophane bags tied with a ribbon.
