DIY FOOTBALL TREATS

Hey guys, it’s Ro! Today we are gonna be making some DIY Football Treats Superbowl is just around the corner and being a Seattle native I am so excited for the Seahawks! In college I was actually a football cheerleader, I really enjoy watching the game

So alright, let’s get started! The 1st thing that we’re gonna be making are these Football Pizza Pockets The things you will need, will be: Olives, some marinara sauce for dipping, 1/4 cup of roasted red peppers, corn meal, 1/2 a cup of diced pepperoni, we’re gonna use 3 cheeses, you can use any of your favorites, but I’m using 1/2 a cup of fontina, 1/2 a cup of mozzarella, and 1/2 a cup of provolone You’ll also need some flour for working with our pizza dough and pizza dough, and lastly a football shaped cookie cutter, I’ll put a link to the one I have down below The 1st thing thing that we're gonna do is get out a cutting board and a sharp cutting knife, and we’re gonna cut up some olives I love olives! They are so good! You’re gonna take about 6 olives, dice them up nice and small and place them into your bowl

Next we’re gonna use our roasted red peppers, take a couple pieces out of the jar to dice up We’re gonna use about 1/4 cup for this recipe Last thing that we’re gonna be cutting up is some pepperoni Put a few pepperoni on a cutting board, dice ‘em up, and then we’re gonna put a 1/2 cup into the bowl It’s time for the cheese, I’ve got 3 cheeses, doesn’t matter what order you add them in as long as they get in there

I’ve got provolone, fontina, and last but not least, my favorite, mozzarella Then stir it all together, mix it well, and we’re gonna set it off to the side and start working with our dough Now it’s time to roll out your pizza dough, I’m using a pre-made dough So, it’s really easy, you just put a little flour down and make it rain, make it rain! The we’re gonna take our rolling pin and roll it flat, you’ll want to roll it about 1/4 of an inch thick Once your dough is rolled out we’re gonna take our football cookie cutter and we’re gonna cut out a bunch of little footballs into the dough

Remember you need 2 pieces for each pizza pocket so cut an even number Now remove the excess dough, rwaaagggghhhh! Now that we’ve got these cut out we’re gonna sprinkle a little bit of cornmeal onto the bottom of our baking sheet This will give our pizza pockets a nice crunchy texture Place the bottom half of the pizza pocket onto the baking sheet And now we’re gonna stuff ‘em

Scoop about 1 teaspoon of our filling onto the center of our footballs Just be careful not to overstuff so they don’t burst in the oven Then I’m gonna use an egg wash which I made with 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water, and we’re gonna take a mini basting brush and brush the edges of the bottom piece, all the way around Using the rest of your footballs, place them on top of the filling and gently press down around the edges I’m using a fork to add a little extra detail and the ridges will help hold it together while baking

Also using a knife to add a little extra lace detail on top of the football Before we bake we’re gonna brush a little bit more egg wash on top of each football It’s time to bake! You’re gonna heat your oven to 400 degrees and bake for 18 minutes Ta-da! Our little football pizza pockets are out of the oven and I put them on my serving plate, heated up a little bit of marinara sauce in the bowl in the middle And now they’re ready to snack on! Little taste test for me… Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, oh my gosh! These are so good! Owwhaammm yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! They’re good! Onto our next treat

For dessert, we’re gonna be making these yummy Football Ice Cream Sandwiches They’re so easy to make, the things you’ll need, will be: a box of ice cream sandwiches, which you can find in the frozen aisle at your grocery store, some white buttercream frosting which I’ve put into a plastic bag with a number 5 tip a the end, wooden taster spoons, and a black pen The 1st step is decorating the wooden spoons by drawing football plays at the end Using X’s and O’s, make as many as you’d like Nowwwwww, open your ice cream sandwiches and slowly press the wooden taste sticks into the bottom, in the middle of the ice cream sandwich

Then take your icing bag with a number 5 tip at the end and draw laces right down the middle of the ice cream sandwich to look like a little football You can do this to as many ice cream sandwiches as you want Ta-da! Here they are and they’re ready to serve! This idea is so simple and so easy to make, I love it! Just make sure to serve ‘em fast so they don’t melt! For our final treat, we’re gonna makes something to drink, Touchdown Root Beer Floats! The things you will need, will be: Some big mason jars, vanilla ice cream, root beer, an ice cream scoop, some fun green and white striped straws, green card stock paper, white card stock paper, a ruler, a glue stick, a small circle hole punch, twine, and some white tape The 1st thing that we’re gonna do is decorate our mason jars to look like little footballs, so take your white tape, cut strips about 4-1/2 inches long to run the length of your mason jar, then you’re gonna cut 4 smaller pieces of tape about an inch and 1/2 long and spread them out evenly to look like little football laces There we go, they look just like little footballs, do this to the rest of your mason jars and next we’re gonna make some drink labels

I decided to make the drink labels look like little flags, so you’re gonna need 2 triangles, a green one, which will be larger, and a white one So 1st cut out your green triangle and then cut out a smaller white triangle Then you’re gonna take your gluestick and stick ‘em together, just stick it on dere! Let them sit for about 5 minutes to set, then you’re gonna take your hole punch, and your twine, punch a hole in the corner of your flag, and then string through the twine! Using a sharpie, label these whatever you would like, you can even use your favorite players number, and tie them around the top of the jar Now it’s time for the good stuff! Scoop as much ice cream as you would like into the bottom of the jar, I’m using 2 scoops, then we’re gonna open a bottle of our root beer, owhwaw jeez! I’m gonna need an oven mitt for this one… There we go! Now slowly pour the root beer over the ice cream, being careful not to let it overflow And the last step is you’re gonna take one of your green straws and stick it in ‘dere! And there you have it, all done, mmmmmm! Root beer floats are delish, om nom nom nom nom! Ta-da! Here are all the Football DIY Treats that we made today, we have our yummy Football Pizza Pockets, for dessert our Football Ice Cream Sandwiches, and our Touchdown Root Beer Floats
