Superbowl Snacks – Football Cookie Balls Recipe

football cookies recipe


This was my first attempt at making these adorable football shaped cookies.  What I learned from this first try?  Melted chocolate chips are not the same as melted Baker’s chocolate.  If you use the actual Baker’s chocolate (as called for) I think the chocolate will be smoother and the cookies will look better than mine turned out.  But even with a few bumps, these were super cute and delicious!

**Makes 40 cookies.


cookie ingredients

  • 6oz softened cream cheese (or use Neufchatel cheese to reduce the fat)
  • 15 oz of finely crushed vanilla or chocolate creme cookies (like Oreos) – try them in a food processor or blender to get them really crushed
  • 2 packages (16 squares total) Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate (melted)
  • 1 tbsp white icing


  • Mix cream cheese and cookie crumbs.
