STEP 1: MELTING THE CHOCOLATE

First, melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe, large bowl, microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted. If chocolate is still too thick, you can add a bit of coconut oil to help.

STEP 2: MAKING THE FOOTBALLS

Second, once chocolate is completely smooth, dip each cookie fully into the chocolate, then transfer to the parchment paper lined pan or baking sheet. Allow for the chocolate to set, you can also use the fridge to speed up the process.

STEP 3: CREATING THE LACES

Finally, melt white chocolate and use a piping bag to create the lace detailing. If you don’t have a piping a plastic bag with a small snip in the corner will work as well. Lastly, let set.

Expert Tips for Making This Recipe

  • Baseball Cookies: You could adapt the steps to make baseball or softball cookies by using round cookies, such as oreos, and using white chocolate and mixing in food coloring.
  • Short cut tip: If you are pressed for time, allow chocolate to set in freezer for quicker hardening time.
  • Custom Colors: Customize your cookies by incorporating team colors for your football fans!
  • Alternative: Making this in a pinch? Make the lace details using white frosting. In a standing mixer combine powdered sugar, a tsp of vanilla and a little bit of milk at a time, cream together until desired consistency. Then use a white icing bag to create details. A Royal icing recipe works well too.
  • Allergies: Unsure if someone has a peanut allergy? Use an alternative cookie such as Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookie.

  • Place the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate is melted. Add coconut oil to the bowl if the chocolate is too thick.
  • Dip each Nutter Butter cookie in the melted chocolate and carefully remove it from the chocolate with a fork. Lightly tap the handle of the fork on the side of the bowl to help knock off excess chocolate from the cookie.

  • When the chocolate has hardened, place the white chocolate chips in a piping bag and heat in the microwave in 15 second intervals. Knead the bag with your fingers between each interval and continue heating until the chocolate is melted.
