It wouldn't be a Super Bowl party without Rice Krispie Treat Footballs on the dessert table. Your foot-loving friends will cheer when they see chocolate on top of these gooey marshmallow cereal treats.
Hi, it's Kim, The Partiologist back with another game day favorite. I don't think I've ever been to a super bowl party with out seeing a rice krispie treat and these Chocolate Rice Krispie Treat Footballs are so simple and impressive! You can have them ready before kick off!
The chocolate-coated RKT football is nothing new, but these chocolate-topped treats have the perfect football shape.
The shape is created using a silicone mold. You can use this method to make cereal treats of any shape and size.
I'll show you how to make the Chocolate-Topped Rice Krispie Treat Footballs below.
Grab your favorite chocolate bar and let's get started!
Make football-shaped Rice Krispie Treats.
If you don't already own the Wilton Silicon Football mold, you must get one. I've had this pan for years and love it!
Spray the inside of the pan with any kind of oil, such as PAM.
After making the RKT recipe, press a handful in each football cavity. If your hands are a bit wet, the RKT won't stick.
Let the RKT set in the refrigerator for a few minutes, then unmold from the pan.
Fill the mold with chocolate.
Wash and dry the football mold, be sure it's completely dry! No need to spray the pan this time.
Melt chocolate candy melts or almond bark,
Pour a little chocolate into the cavity of each football.
Top with a treat.
Press the RKT back in the pan, making sure it is touching the chocolate.
Freeze until the chocolate is hardened, about 10 minutes.
Remove from the pan and you've got yourself the perfect chocolate-topped rice krispie treat footballs!
These little treats will not deflate, they will, however, disappear!
