Chef notes

Are you ready for some cupcakes? These football-inspired treats make the perfect end to a game-day meal.

Preparation

To make field goals:

Break or cut pretzel stick into 4 pieces measuring 1” each. Use white chocolate to “glue” them into a field goal shape. Repeat until you have 16. Set aside to harden.

To make football:

Using a piping bag fitted with a skinny tip, pipe white chocolate (or white frosting) “laces” onto the chocolate covered almond. Repeat until you have 16. Set aside to harden.

To assemble cupcakes:

Pipe “grass” onto each cupcake using green frosting in a piping bag fitted with a grass tip. Push pretzel field goal into each cupcake and place football almond on top.
