Recipe from

 2 hrs
 36 Footballs


  • cups sifted powdered sugar

  • cups creamy peanut butter

  • (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips

  • 1cup white chocolate chips

  • cup peanuts

  • tablespoons butter

  • tablespoons shortening

  • (3 1/2 ounce) package black sparkle decorating gel


  1. Mix together powdered sugar and peanut butter.

  2. Portion mixture into approximately 36 balls (1.5 Tablespoon size).

  3. Roll balls between the flattened palms of your hands to create a ball shaped like a top. Then roll ball on flat surface to smooth middle into more round shape leaving the ends with points creating the football shape. Arrange finished footballs in a single layer on wax paper and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  4. Melt milk chocolate chips, 3 tablespoons butter, and 2 tablespoons shortening over double boiler. Mixture should be thin and shiny for dipping.

  5. Crush peanuts and set aside.

  6. Coat footballs with chocolate by rolling gently in melted milk chocolate while still over double boiler, being careful not to crush pointed ends. Place on wire rack to allow excess chocolate to drip off.

  7. While chocolate is still tacky but not still wet, place bottom of football in crushed peanuts

  8. Draw line on top center of football using black gel frosting.

  9. Melt white chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon butter in microwave and place in frosting bag or sandwich bag with cut corner and draw laces and end lines.

  10. Return finished footballs to refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  11. Serve chilled if you don't want your fingers all chocolatey or room temperature if you don't mind.
