more football fun food

today my bestest buddy in the whole entire world and universe celebrates his 11th birthday!

so i made more football treats for him that'll work for you when you celebrate superbowl with your buddies tomorrow.

and seeing that football posts will be kinda null and void after the football "holiday" tomorrow, i better get this out to you like, yesterday.
ok so here goes!
these are quick and dag gone YUMMY
with the help of a couple of awesome bloggers' recipes, 
i was able to add a little twist to each of them.

first up is this recipe from the lady on the ranch who makes some of the most dag gone flabbit deelish dishes.

i stuck some candy footballs from party city on half of them and some green sprinkles on the other half. 

then i made some goalposts half hazardly cuz it was so dag gone late at night and my eyelids were drooping so i really did not care if they were smooth or not, cuz i don't think it's every day a kid eats a goalpost so the one time they do, they will be so excited they won't care.
(or at least i am hoping!)

it's just melted candy melt on parchment paper drawn with no pattern whatsoever and done in like, umm...10 minutes?

then when they dried, i just plopped them suckers down into the brownies. 
yay! they hold.
ok treat #1 done.

next up is this snack mix totally stolen from food craft genius friend Brenda here cuz gosh darn even though it took awhile for me to do icing laces on cheap dollar tree palmer football chocolates and peanut goober candy, 
it was worth seeing it come together. 
oh Brenda is so smart! :)

next i bagged them up in these hour glass shaped bag thingies from michael's, folded and taped the top of the bag to the back, and drew a lickety split football on them with my 
omg i just love 'em paint markers.
yeah, i did these during vampire hours too.
and last but not least, 
i went back to the lady on the ranch again and got her spread recipe.

but i shaped it like so and baked it on top of parchment paper cuz i wanted to transfer it onto a football plate i had for the party.

and i used white chocolate cuz i didn't want everything football brown but mostly cuz my buddy does not really like chocolate that much but likes m&m's.
(don't ask cuz i keep asking and am still in search of the answer.)

oh and i decorated it with color.

i coulda made 3 posts outta this one and done my silly cartoon bubbles but man i have celebrating to do with my bestest buddy in the whole entire world and universe.
