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.

And now that the Giants are in the Superbowl, I will be making these again in 2 weeks!!  I wanted to post this earlier last week but was afraid I might jinx the Giants.  Good thing they pulled it off. 

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.

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope everyone has a great week!!
