Chocolate Crispy Rice Football Treats

Football playoff season is here and very soon many will be gathering to watch this year's Super Bowl.  We'll be featuring some great party foods for the next couple of weeks, so keep checking back and become a follower today!

To kick off the final playoff games, I made these chocolate football crispy rice treats.  They were fast, easy, cheap, and tasty! They are perfect to take to a football party!

Chocolate Crispy Rice Football Treats

Prepare the usual rice crispy treat recipe, only use cocoa crispies instead. (not cocoa puffs!)
For a little extra chocolate flavor, I like to melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the marshmallow mixture prior to mixing in the cereal.  This is not necessary, but I like to add it.
Butter your hands and start shaping the mixture into footballs, and place on waxed paper.  

Once they've cooled, use either home-made or store-bought white frosting to "lace up the footballs."

Frosting: mix 1 c powdered sugar,  a little milk and vanilla, stir to preferred consistency.  You want it thick enough to pipe through a decorator's tube, or you can cut a tiny slit in the corner of a plastic bag and pipe your laces that way.
Take to your party and watch them disappear!
