How to Make a Football Cookie Cake

Are y’all ready for some football?

How to make a Football Cookie Cake! Use any cookie recipe or dough to make an easy football cookie cake!

Honestly? If I’m being truthful, I’m never ready. Football just kind of…exists for me. For my husband? It’s a whole ‘nother ballgame. He’s, like, down with the football. Football is Mel’s thang. And I’m just the wife who sits back, scolds the kid for rolling her eyes, and downloads extra books on her kindle from September-January.

All I gotta say is, I’m glad he doesn’t play fantasy baseball. That season is way too long, thankyouverymuch. At least this one is only a few months a year.

How to make a Peanut Butter Football Cookie Cake Recipe

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know a few things about my husband:

  1. He doesn’t eat dessert.
  2. He loves peanut butter more than me.
  3. He loves fantasy football so much that he’s the commissioner of his league and he travels to Arizona to do his draft.

In all fairness to him, #3 is because he’s been playing with the same guys since we lived in Arizona (10 years ago) and it’s become his once-yearly boys draft/golf weekend.

Every year, while he and Jordan make some sort of trophy for the league winner out of dollar store parts, I make some sort of football dessert for him to take to Arizona with him. They all enjoy it during the draft, while they’re on their computers and headsets and doing whatever it is you do during a fantasy draft.

I’ve made Peanut Butter Football Cookies, Football Brownie Pies, Peanut Butter Football Dip, and Nutalla Brownie Footballs, to name just a few. You’ll notice most of them involve some sort of peanut butter. This is Mel, we’re talking about.

Skinny Peanut Butter Dip (3 of 11)

PinterestFacebookTwitterStumbleYummlyEmailThis Skinny Peanut Butter Dip is totally all-purpose. I ate it for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dessert! Jordan is an early riser and always has been. If she sleeps past 6:00am, I consider it sleeping in. If that wasn’t bad enough, she wants breakfast the second her eyes open, meaning that by 6:30 on...

Jordan’s in the 5th grade this year, and 5th graders get to join the band.
