First Down Oreo Pops!!!

Football Field Oreo PopsThese cute little football field Oreo pops are the perfect snack for your next tailgating party or Sunday afternoon of football!

These are just fun little football treats…and the world has far too few fun little football treats– there’s always room for more!  These are made just like all of the other crazy Oreo pops on the Easybaked site.  Dipped in green, piped in white and topped with a cute football sprinkle!

Football Field Oreo PopsHere is how these fun little treats are made: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS:

  • One box of Double Stuff Oreos
  • One bag of Wilton’s candy melts in Green
  • One bag of Wilton’s candy melts in White
  • One jar of football sprinkles (I made my own, but there are some cute ones here)
  • 24-30 lollipop sticks

DIRECTIONS: (Need a visual?  Click here.)

  • Carefully twist apart all of the Oreo cookies
  • Using one of the lollipop sticks, make an indentation in the white filling of each cookie.
  • Melt the about 1/4 of the white Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until completely melted and smooth.
  • Dip the end of one stick into the melted white chocolate, drizzle a little in the center of the cookie filling and then gently press it into the indentation made.
  • Place the top of the cookie back on and allow white chocolate to harden (20 minutes or so), cementing the cookie back together with a stick inside. (Freeze for 5-10 minutes to speed this process up)
  • Melt green candy melts in the same manner that you melted the white.
  • Holding the stick, lower the entire Oreo into the bowl of melted green chocolate, spooning it over the top and sides to cover it completely.
  • Allow the excess green chocolate to drain off and gently place covered Oreo on a piece of parchment paper to harden and cool completely
  • Melt another 1/4 of the white candy melts, as before, and spoon into a small zip top bag.  Clip a tiny corner off and pipe lines and numbers on the top of each Oreo pop.
  • Place on a clean piece of parchment paper to cool, and immediately place a football sprinkle on top.
  • Allow pop to harden completely.
  • Remove from paper and serve- or place in a small treat bag, tied with a fun team ribbon.
  • Enjoy!

Today is the day!!!!  NFL football season starts!!!!  Tonight it’s the Packers vs. Seattle (GO PACK GO!!!!!!!), and I had to add some cheese on these fun little cupcakes to make them just perfect!

Wait— what’s inside?  That’s what makes these so much fun!!!!!

Green Bay Packer Cupcakes!A little splash of team color hidden in the middle.  You can make these in any team colors you want- but if you make them for the Chicago Bears or the Detroit Lions you will need this tutorial here to make your cupcake toppers. :)

Here is how we made these: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS:

  • One boxed white cake mix (plus water, oil and eggs to make according to box)
  • Green and gold food color gels (or your team colors)
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) of salted butter, softened
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) of unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla (or any flavoring you’d like to add to your frosting)
  • 1 bag of Wilton’s candy melts in yellow (if you want cheesehead toppers!!)  You will also need little triangle chocolate molds for these.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Make cake mix as directed on box, and take about 1/4 of the batter and mix it with yellow food color gel.
  • Using a cake pop maker or a small mini muffin tin, make 24 small, baked balls of cake in yellow. (click here for pictures of how to make these cake balls)
  • Color remaining batter with green food color gel.
  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spoon a little bit of green batter into 24 cupcake liners placed in muffin tins.
  • Place one cake ball in each cavity in the center of the green batter.

Cheesehead Cupcakes!!!

  • Carefully spoon more green batter over the top of each yellow cake ball, filling each cup only 2/3 to 3/4 full (be careful to not over-fill. That is easy to do when you are focused on covering up that cake ball!)
  • Bake at 350F degrees for 15-18 minutes.
  • Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
  • Make frosting by placing butters, powdered sugar and vanilla in a large bowl and beating on high for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Divide frosting in half and color one half gold and the other half green. Place each color in a zip top bag that has been fitted with a decorating tip.
  • Pipe yellow icing on 1st followed by green and top with a bit of cheese!!!!!

Cheesehead Cupcakes!!!!!To make little cheese head cupcake toppers:

Say Cheese!!!!

Yes, that is a tire pressure gauge…..

  • Melt yellow candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, in the microwave, in 30-second increments, stirring in between.
  • Put candy melts into a sturdy zip top bag, clip a corner and pipe into triangle candy molds.
  • Tap on counter to remove bubbles, and place in the freezer for 5 minutes, or until completely hardened.
  • Turn mold upside down and tap on counter to remove chocolate.
  • Repeat this process.
  • Allow the triangle chocolates to return to room temperature, and use whatever you find handy to put “holes” in your cheese.  I used a (cleaned in hot soapy water) tire pressure gauge for mine.  Let’s hear it for problem solving in the kitchen!!!!!!

Green Bay Packer Cupcakes!

My thoughts:  These are just plain fun.  I recommend using a cake pop maker for the center circles.  It really does take less time and it makes the most adorably round little cake balls.  Plus you can make a Polka-Dot cake with it too!!!  I hope you get a chance to celebrate your team with these fun and colorful cupcakes!!!  IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!!!

These soft and chewy chocolate cut-out cookies make the perfect little footballs!  Are you ready for the season to start?  Kick it off with these adorable treats!

NFL football starts this week with a Thursday night game against the Packers (GO PACK GO!!!!!!) and Seattle.  Let the season of fun tailgating and snacking begin!!!

These are seriously the yummiest chocolate cookies ever, and the PERFECT, not-sticky, dough for cookie cutters.  I’ve used this recipe SO many times here on easybaked.  When I thought about making football cookies I automatically defaulted to this wonderful family recipe. I promise, you will love it!!!

Here’s how they are made: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Add butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cocoa together in  large mixing bowl.
  • Blend on medium speed with a mixer until smooth.
  • Gradually add dry ingredients and mix until smooth (use clean hands at the end, to knead into a soft ball of dough)
  • Roll out cookie dough on floured counter.  I roll mine thick, so I get nice and chewy cookies.
  • Cut into football shapes using a football cookie cutter and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Leave a little room for the cookies to spread.
  • Bake for 10 to 14 minutes until the edges are firm.
  • Gently slide parchment paper off of cookie sheet and onto a flat surface.  Cool completely before moving- this allows the cookie to “set”.  
  • Frost as desired.  I used royal icing in a zip-top bag with a corner clipped off to decorate these.  You can click here for my royal icing recipe and instructions for use.  You could also use regular icing or even melted white chocolate.
  • Allow icing to harden up before stacking.

Football Cookies!!!

My thoughts: These are so cute, and so yummy that I kept wandering by the table just took look at them while they hardened up. I couldn’t help but smile every time….and eat one.  Which was bad, because I’ve eaten too much fry bread here on the Navajo Nation and I need to diet!  They are irresistibly good…so I quickly have given them all away!  Happy football season everyone!!!  Bring on the fun!!!!!  ~r

Fudge Stripe Cookie cups

These dark chocolate cups have a surprise inside: a crunchy little fudge stripe cookie!

I just love those fudge stripe cookies.  Even when I am trying to watch my calorie intake, I get the little 100 calorie packs as a treat.  They are just soooo yummy!  Those little mini cookies were the inspiration for these cookie cups.  They fit perfectly inside, and make for a wonderful surprise when you bite into one!

Fudge Stripe Cookie Cups!

So much fun!  Best use of diet food  EVER!

Here’s how we made them: (for a printable recipe click here)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 44-48 mini cookie cups)

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • One box of Keebler Mini Fudge Stripe cookies
  • One tub of vanilla frosting.
  • A little bit of melted chocolate to drizzle on top, if desired

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Make cookies by combining butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and cocoa powder and beating until completely combined.
  • Add other dry ingredients gradually, mixing with beaters until too heavy to beat. Use clean hands to knead dough into a soft ball.
  • Use a small cookie scoop (I used a scoop that holds 1/2 Tablespoon of batter) to portion out your dough into mini muffin tins that have been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • Use a tart shaper or a wooden spoon to press the dough into a cup shape (really, the tart shaper works best for this and you will use it again- I use mine all the time!)

Making cookie cups

  • Bake at 350F degrees for 7 to 8 minutes and remove from oven.
  • Press centers in a second time with the tart shaper and allow them to cool for just a couple of minutes.
  • Use a small paring knife to pop each cup out and allow them to cool completely on the counter.
  • Place one mini Fudge Stripe Cookie to each cup
  • Spoon frosting into a small bowl and microwave for 20-30 seconds, until soft.  Stir until smooth.
  • Spoon frosting into a sturdy zip-top bag and clip a corner off.  Pipe frosting over cookie to the top of each cup

Fudge Stripe Cookie Cups!

  • Pipe chocolate stripes on top to decorate.
  • Allow frosting to firm up.
  • Enjoy!

Kool Aid Pie!

Posted on

KoolAid PieWith a fruit cereal crust and sweet, creamy Kool Aid filling, this cake will have you and every child in your life asking for seconds!

This recipe is made in a springform pan- like a cheesecake. The crust is made of crushed Trix Cereal and I made my filling with watermelon Kool Aid.  It was perfect with the sweet crust and slightly tart filling.  The cool thing?  You can use ANY flavor of Kool Aid you want!  Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Cherry, Grape, Strawberry….ANYTHING!

Kool Aid Cake!

So. Much. Fun!!!!!!!!!

Here’s how we made it: (for a printable recipe, click here)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 cups of Trix Cereal (crushed into about 3 cups)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter (melted)
  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 package (8 oz) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (softened to room temperature)
  • 1 packet of Kool Aid drink mix (any flavor~ if you use a lemonade, add it to taste, as it will be more tart than the other flavors)
  • 1 (13 oz) jar of Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme
  • 1 tub (8 oz) of Cool Whip (thawed in refrigerator)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine crushed cereal, sugar and melted butter. Mix until well- combined,
  • Press into an un-greased, 8″ springform pan, pressing crumbs up sides and into bottom.
  • Bake at 350F degrees for 15-18 minutes.
  • Leave sides on pan, and cool completely.

Crushed CerealKool Aid Pie Cereal Crust!!

  • Make filling by creaming together the cream cheese with the Kool Aid. Add Kool Aid according to how much flavor, color and tartness you enjoy.  I added the whole packet, and YUM!
  • Mix in the entire container of Marshmallow Creme and blend well.
  • Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip until well blended.
  • Carefully spoon filling into cooled cereal crust, and very gently (as to not pick up crumbs of cereal), spread it to the edges.
  • Spoon remaining Cool Whip on top.
  • Store chilled, and just before serving remove sides of pan, and sprinkle extra cereal on top.

Kool Aid Pie with Cereal Crust!

My thoughts:  The only thing even a tiny bit hard about this recipe is pressing that crust into a springform pan.  The rest is just mixing and pouring.  So easy- but such a pretty and fun dessert.  The watermelon version I made got RAVE reviews and it was gone in one evening.  Almost everyone had seconds!  I wasn’t sure how well the watermelon flavor would go over, but it was so refreshing!  I loved it!  I hope you get a chance to try this easy summer recipe!  Enjoy!!! ~r

Popsicle Punch

 Love popsicles?  Love a fruity, refreshing punch?  Try making popsicle punch!  Everyone can choose their own flavor!

Popsicle Punch!!

I was sitting in the sun, thinking about punch the other day.  I was thinking about how you never really get to have punch unless you make a ton of it in a big punch bowl~ which sends it into the “only at a big party” category of treats.  I started thinking about how much fun it would be if you could make a single-serving punch, and suddenly—POPSICLES!!!!!!  A little bit of Sprite, maybe a bit of pineapple juice and a POPSICLE!  Choose your flavor, pick your punch!

I had to run to the store and get popsicles to try this little experiment, and YUM!!!!!!  YUM! YUM! YUM!!!!!!

I loved the plain popsicles- beautiful colors and delicious fruity punch.

THEN, I tried the popsicles that have the ice cream filling… you know, these:

Popsicle Punch!

So much creamy, fruity happiness in one little mug…. well, two little mugs because I had to try a couple of flavors:

Popsicle Punch!

That orange punch?  Like a creamsicle in a cup….!  Unbelievably good!!!

Here’s how I did it:

INGREDIENTS:

  • Sprite (or another lemon-lime soda)
  • Pinapple (or another fruit) juice
  • Popsicles!

DIRECTIONS:

  • Fill a cup about 1/2 full of soda (leave room for the popsicle- the ice cream ones foam up a bit) 
  • Add juice to taste- I added about 1 part juice for 4 parts soda.
  • Place a popsicle into cup and stir to dissolve
  • ENJOY!

Popsicle Punch!!!

My thoughts:  You can make individual cups of punch, or make the base punch in a big punch bowl (just the soda and the juice) and set a cooler full of popsicles out for people to choose flavors from.  I just made a cup of punch with a frozen juice bar— oh my.  So yummy!  The possibilities are endless!!!!  Enjoy!  ~r

Cheers!!!!

Cheers!!!!
