it's my son's birthday very soon and he decided on a football party.
lucky for me, it's superbowl season so i could get an overabundance of football ideas.
but i think i am going to my SIL's for a superbowl party.
and lots of the girls there are interested in football and talk the talk that is totally not me.
i just like the treats.
so i was looking for a football themed treat that didn't look like a football just for something different. when i stumbled upon this, i knew i had to make them.
they require only 4 ingredients,
and there is no baking involved.
i did learn something about football while making these.
did you know how closely football and ducks are related?
well, neither did i. perhaps i can incorporate that into a conversation when i go to the party for some superbowl talk.
anyway, i took the supplies,
pulverized the oreos, smashed the cream cheese in it, smooshed the dough to make a bunch of balls and then tackled them on the side to make an indent.
(how's that for football talk?)
but the real challenge was breaking the pretzels.
i only wasted 99.9% of the bag doing it the wrong way til i figured out the right way.
if you don't want to waste pretzels, i advise doing it the right way...
you can fight with the pretzels while your truffles are in the fridge hardening.
and there you have the helmets...!
or are they?!?!?!
i think i just made a duck.
in fact, i made a bunch of ducks!
funny how one view can distort your whole view of something.
i think we need to finish these as ducks may not be a sensible treat for a football party.
so now these look like helmets.
hey is that the aflac duck?
i think he would like these pops along with some quackers and cheese.
so much for football talk.
what a quack.
