My husband is a HUGE New York Giants fan so Connor and I were excited to surprise him with these cookie cups last week for his birthday.
Here is how I made these fun treats:
I started by making chocolate chip cookies in a mini muffin pan.
While they were in the oven I made the little footballs: I printed out a row of small footballs, placed the picture under the wax paper (you can’t really see it in the picture, but they are there), melted chocolate candy melts in a decorating bag, and squeezed over the image to form football shapes. Then I melted white candy melts to make the laces.
Once the cookies were cool, I iced them with my favorite buttercream icing recipe:
Mix 1 cup unsalted butter, 3 cups confectioners sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons milk until blended.
Then I dipped the iced cookies in green sugar sprinkles.
To make the cupcake/cookie toppers, I made, printed and cut out these images. Then I cut out larger circles with red cardstock. I taped the NY Giants image to the red circle with a toothpick in between.
Top cookie bites with toppers and chocolate footballs. Then enjoy these yummy treats!
Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone has a great week!!
Go, Big Blue!!
So cute! We are crossing our fingers that Eli will do it again!
