Be the hero of your tailgating parties this weekend! Bake my Quick & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe into 2 round cake pans, make a quick cut in the middle plus frosting, and voila! A football cookie cake in no time.
If I was to break down the stages of my life as defined by my interest in football, it would look something like this:
Up to age 9-ish: my brothers and I have this game that consists of tossing a football on the roof and tackling each other to get it when it comes down. I always win. Ergo, I’m basically a football pro.
Ages 10-14: don’t care. Did football even happen in 1996? Weird.
Ages 14-17: oooooooooh! Football players are ca-yute! And I’m super cute too when I put little ribbons in my hair and wear my powder puff t-shirt at the high school game. Woot! Go football!! …which team are we again? Doesn’t matter. They’re all cute. Go team!
Ages 18-19: In an ongoing effort to impress all things male… I’m totally that college girl who “actually likes” and “gets” football. You know, because I have 4 brothers, so obviously I grew up loving football. Obviously. And now I’m at a university with a team… and a really big stadium… but most importantly, I have unfettered access to buying lots of super cute team apparel! Yep. I’m so into football.
Age 20-21: Awwwww, it’s our first Football season as a married couple! *one month later* ….so you want to watch every game? Like, all of them? Huh… And when does this end? IN FEBRUARY???? WTH?
Age 21-present: Is it that time of year again? Seriously? Awesome. I’ve been looking forward to my 6-month shift as a single mom. ✌🏻 🙄
Haha. Just insert alllllllll the eye-rolling emojis here please. Thanks.
Anyway. Since I’ve officially entered the Football Widow portion of my year, I figure I might as well break out the big guns: FOOTBALL FOOD!
The shiny polish has worn off of my feeble love for Football games, but that’s ok. Because I have a real, true, undying love for the food. Like this Football Cookie Cake.
It’s so, SO easy! All you have to do is whip up a batch of cookie dough using my Quick & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. From there, you’ll bake it into two round cake pans. Then cut a strip from the middle (I place a ruler down the middle and cut down each side).
“Glue” the two sides together with chocolate frosting to make the shape. And then pour melted frosting on top for a shiny, smooth, chocolate-y topping. Pipe on a few stitches with white frosting, and *poof* you’re officially winning the trophy thingy (or whatever) for best football treat ever! Way to go, you!
It’ll look something like this:
Was that so easy or was that so easy?
And it’s GOOD too. Seriously. I nearly ate an entire football all by myself! You do know how I feel about chocolate chip cookies…
Happy Football Season y’all. I guess 🙄.
