Recipe Tips


Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs until blended.


Shape into 48 (1-inch) balls; place on parchment-covered baking sheets. Gently flatten each ball with bottom of clean drinking glass. Pinch both ends of each flattened round together to resemble football shape.


Freeze 10 min. Meanwhile, melt semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package. Repeat with white chocolate.


Dip footballs, 1 at a time, into semi-sweet chocolate, turning to evenly coat both sides of each football with chocolate; return to baking sheet. Immediately add 2 candy eyes to each.


Use some of the white chocolate to add lines to footballs as shown in photo, then use remaining white chocolate to add the facial features as desired.


Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm. Keep refrigerated.
