1 large bowl

Ingredients:

Directions:

structions

  1. Wrap one large and one medium sized bowl completely with plastic wrap.
  2. Pour one bag of popcorn into the large bowl. Try not to fill the bowl all the way to the rim. You may need to remove some popcorn! If so, just set it aside or add it to your remaining bag. Place the smaller bowl in the middle, adjusting the popcorn to create an evenly thick layer underneath.
  3. Combine the melted chocolate, candy melts and shortening. Carefully pour along the space between bowls, letting it coat the popcorn. Once everything is covered, set aside to harden. 
  4. Meanwhile, mix the other popcorn bag with the chocolate and pretzels. 
  5. Unmold the popcorn bowl. Roll out the fondant. Cut into one long strip and 5 small ones, attaching them to the front side of the bowl to look like football laces. 
  6. Fill the bowl with popcorn mix, serve and enjoy!

Crowded Stadium Cookies

35 minutes

Easy

16 cookies

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. 
  2. To make the cookies: Cream together butter and sugar until light in color and fluffy. Add vanilla and the egg. Next, add in the flour and cornstarch. 
  3. Divide the cookie dough and color one half green. Roll out both dough balls, and cut each into 16 small rectangles. Arrange one plain rectangle with a green rectangle under it, overlapping slightly. Use a round cookie cutter to create a two-toned circle. Repeat with all remaining dough. 
  4. Space out cookies on a parchment lined sheet. Bake for 7 minutes until slightly golden, then let cool. 
  5. To make the royal icing: Whisk together the lemon juice and meringue powder until bubbles start to form. Then, add the powdered sugar and mix until thick. If needed, add more powdered sugar or lemon juice to fix texture.

  7. While the icing is still fresh, add the rainbow nonpareil sprinkles to completely coat the white side.

Yard Line Oreo Pops

  2. Dunk the oreos in the green candy melts, and let solidify. If needed, dunk a second time for a thicker layer. 
  3. Roll out the fondant. Cut three thin strands the same length as three oreos. Use number-shaped cookie cutters to cut out a “10,” “20,” and “30” for each pop.
  4. Add the decorations to each pop. Place the white stripe down the center, and add one set of numbers to the center of each oreo, one digit on either side of the line. Use water to help the numbers adhere. Enjoy!
