Superbowl M&M Football Cookies
Are you ready for the big game?
Unless you count these cute M&M Football Cookies.
They are delicious, easy to make, and best of all, fun to eat during and after the game.
Come on, who can refuse a bite or two?
So, my idea is the following:
Make football shaped sugar cookies, thick cookie icing, and serve the M&M’s (or Skittles) in a bowl. That way, everybody can decorate them using their team’s color, or in any pattern they’d like.
Around here my husband is a huge football fan and loves inviting friends over and talk about play and statistics. I on the other hand, am focused more on the food, and concocting recipes for the occasion.
I cook, they eat. It works 🙂
I got all the game day essentials at great prices at Sam’s Club.
Isn’t that amazing? – Basically a membership for only $25. Half of what other places charge.
Look for those Valpak envelopes in the mail for additional information and savings.
Now check out this spread:
Those M&M’s prices can’t be beat! So buy a few bags to make these M&M Football Cookies. If you’re not a fan of M&M use Skittles. They will both be delicious.
Choose to make the cookies and icing from scratch or simply use store-bought dough and bagged icing. Both versions will turn out great and of course, cute. 🙂
I hope you can try this delicious M&M Football Cookies at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
