I made some fun football food the other evening and I wanted to share with you. These football Rice Krispie treats are perfect for a team football party or tailgate event. These tasty treats went really fast at my home when I made them for our football viewing. Be sure to add them to your fall snack idea list. You can also make these for football viewing parties.

Football Krispie Treats
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 cup semi-sweet baking chips for topping
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water
In a large saucepan, melt butter or margarine over low heat. Add marshmallows a cup at a time and stir until well blended.
Turn off heat when marshmallows are melted.
Add cereal slowly and stir with a buttered spoon or spatula to combine.
Place in a large (buttered) baking pan (cereal should be no more than 1″ deep) and cool. Use a football shaped cookie cutter to cut out football shapes after the cereal mixture has cooled.
Meanwhile, melt 1 cup semisweet baking chips. I used the microwave on 50% power, 30 seconds at a time, until chips melt together.
Spread over each football and let cool until firm.
When chocolate has hardened, add football tethering with white icing (1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon water mixed thoroughly).
