Yard Line Cookies

CandiQuik Yard Line Cookies

Football season is almost here! I’ll admit, I don’t know a whole lot about football, but I like watching the games and it’s always a great excuse to gather friends and eat some good food! The extent of my football knowledge is the rules can be confusing and fantasy football is a big deal. That’s about it. So I always make sure I bring good treats to make up for all the questions I ask during the game.

I might not be able to tell you what the announcers are talking about, but I know what a touchdown is and these yard line cookies would be considered just that. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: these cookies were incredibly easy to make (as were the cake footballs) but people will assume you spent ages preparing anything with a little piping. I won’t tell if you won’t.

Just break off a block of CandiQuik to put aside before you melt and dye the rest of it. When it’s time to decorate just melt the remaining block in a mug, pour into a Ziploc bag, and cut a tiny bit off the corner of the bag to pipe nice, clean lines. If you don’t already have oil-based candy color, most craft stores with a baking section, like Michaels or Joann, will have them.

Who knows, maybe this will be the year I decide to learn what’s actually going on in the game.

Hahah, who am I kidding? It’s A LOT easier to just keep making these treats than learn what all those football terms mean.

*UPDATE 9/14/2016* Here we are a year later and you know what? I’m a fan of football food AND the game itself! Bring on the 2016 season!
