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 …
Football Scoring Play Brownies
- 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).
- 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).
- Frost cooled brownies using green frosting.
- 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 😉
Have you heard about cutting brownies with a plastic knife? I learned this trick and always make sure that I have one handy … it works!
