Superbowl Sunday Brownies

Boys love football. They also love food. Which is why I decided, what better time to make football inspired brownies than on Superbowl Sunday?

These adorable (and easy!) football shaped brownies were quite the party pleaser at the Superbowl party we attended in early February and it wasn’t just the kiddos that were excited about football shaped food. I’m convinced that anytime you get creative with food, both grown-ups and kids alike get excited.

While my Seahawk's, unfortunately, did not make it to the Superbowl this year, these brownies are a winner any time of year!

Chocolate Football Brownies
4 squares Unsweetened Chocolate
¾ cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour

Heat oven to 350°F.

Line 13x9-inch pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spray foil with cooking spray.

Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely. Use foil handles to remove brownies from pan. If you don’t have a football shaped cookie cutter, these are easy to cut into the shapes of footballs.

Butter Cream Frosting
1 stick butter
1-2 tsp vanilla
¼ c milk
3 c powdered sugar

Mix the ingredients together. Put into a piping bag and decorate your brownies like footballs!
