This game day-ready recipe makes it totally acceptable to play with your food. We took classic crisp rice cereal treats and gave them a Super Bowl-inspired makeover by molding the pliable mixture into mini footballs before it sets. The end results are pretty touch down-worthy!



  1. Combine the mini marshmallows, butter and mini chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring every 20 seconds, until the butter and chocolate are melted; stir to combine.
  2. Pour in the cocoa rice cereal and stir until coated.
  3. Spray your hands with cooking spray, then shape the rice cereal mixture into twelve 4-inch footballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let cool, then pipe on laces and stripes with vanilla frosting.
