Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Football
Why I Love This Recipe
I made this for our football party celebrating the 2007-08 OSU Buckeyes in the national championship. Instead of the normal Buckeye candy, I made a real, edible, Buckeye football. Based on a community cook book recipe for Scotcheroos.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 c. Karo
1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. peanut butter
6 c. rice crispy cereal
chocolate frosting (packaged or homemade)
vanilla frosting (packaged or homemade)
colored writing icing (optional)
Stir together Karo and sugar in a large saucepan. Heat until mixture boils. Remove from heat.
Add peanut butter, stir until smooth. Return to heat briefly if necessary.
Add cereal; stir to coat evenly.
Turn out into a buttered 13x9 pan. Let it cool and harden about ten minutes.
With a knife, cut out football outline from rectangle. Pile the edge "scraps" onto the middle and mold into a football shape.
Spread chocolate frosting over entire cookie. Pipe vanilla frosting "stitches".
Optional: Write team name or draw mascot with writing icing
