These candy footballs are so much fun to serve for a tailgate party or Superbowl celebration. They can even be made a couple of weeks in advance and frozen until game day.
There is no baking involved. Just stir all the ingredients together, shape into footballs (they don’t need to be perfect), and dip into melted chocolate.
Once the chocolate has cooled and set, use melted white chocolate to draw on the football stitching. Then carefully place a candy stick to the side of the stitching and insert. (Be careful when inserting the sticks so you don’t crack the chocolate coating.) Then you are ready to serve or freeze them until needed. I usually set the whole finished plate into a small box and cover with plastic wrap before freezing. When you are ready to serve them, set out the footballs an hour ahead of time.
