Football Scoring Play Brownies

Food is a big part of every Super Bowl Party … at least the ones I’ve attended.  It’s usually pretty casual … not very fancy, but always good food!  Today I’m sharing brownies that are easy to make, decorate and transport to a party.   The brownies are baked, frosted, decorated and served in the same pan … easy peasy and large enough to feed a crowd!  These are my Football Scoring Play Brownies …

Once again, I used Tic Tac Toe Pretzels (from Target) … final project using these pretzels … at least for now!  The brownies have a play diagram on them … like a coach may draw on a chalkboard … a “quarterback run right” play, according to the hubby.  The X  and O pretzels worked perfectly …

  1.  Prepare two boxes of brownie mix, according to packages directions or two of your favorite brownie recipes (that would be baked in a 9″ x 13″ pan).  Bake prepared brownie batter in a 12″ x 18″ x 1″ (half sheet/jelly roll) pan.  Hint:  for baking time, I started with the baking time for a 9″ x 13″ pan and added about 5 minutes).
  2. Make frosting – I used one batch of Cream Cheese Frosting.  Use about 1/4 cup of frosting in a decorating bag fitted with a small round tip (#3) to draw “X’s” and “O’s” on the pretzels.  Color the remaining frosting green (Americolor – Leaf Green gel food coloring).
  3. Frost cooled brownies using green frosting.
  4. Place the X and O pretzels on the brownies to resemble a football play.  Use white frosting to draw directional lines/arrows.

This Nordic Ware pan is one of my favorites … very versatile … put the cover on it and hit the road … don’t be late to the party 😉
