Who doesn’t love football? Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter together? Well someone, put that all together and thanks to Pinterest I found this yumminess for myself. This is my third attempt at making something I found on Pinterest. The first was red velvet cake in jar and well that was a disaster, next came this cheddar bacon dip that everyone raves about in their reviews (nothing special imo). Well this week one of our co-workers celebrated her 30th anniversary with the company and since she loves this football team from Dallas (see how I did that?) 😉 we had a tailgate themed celebration. So I knew exactly which board from my Pinterest I would look to for an idea.
It was a fairly easy recipe, I of course skipped ahead and just dumped all the powdered sugar in there at once, but really if you do the same thing it’s not going to hurt anything. I did have to put the mixture in the fridge for an hour aka Scandal was on and I wasn’t going to miss it. So after I finished seeing Olivia as a somewhat naive college co-ed, getting mad at Quinn for not listening to Huck and feeling sad for Huck; I took out the mixture from the fridge and put it in my football mold. If you have a football cake pan or container of some sort I’d definitely recommend using it, I’m not sure if I could’ve formed the football shape without it. I added the sprinkles and then pushed back the mixture from the sides with a spoon and moved the sprinkles around so they would cover the entire football mixture including the sides. I really wasn’t sure how it would go over, but everyone asked for the recipe and I only had a little bit left to bring home. Which made my hubby happy since he could have some too. The one thing I did notice is that over the course of the day the dip became a bit “liquidy” not sure if that’s due to the peanut butter or maybe I didn’t have enough confectioner’s sugar in there to soak up the oil from the peanut butter.
Overall it was a great hit. If you’d like to try it yourself you can check it out here and let me know how it turns out for you. Thanks for stopping by!
