Well, football games are on television almost every day of the week now, so I love to serve my husband some fun treats during the season. I found this recipe on the Wilton candy website, and thought they were so cute and irresistible. The technique requires both patience and practice, but the outcome is super delicious.
Gather these ingredients to make 18 cookies. 4 ounces of black chocolate candy melting wafers, 8 ounces of white chocolate candy melting wafers, 9 black candy wafers cut in half for the referee caps, and 18 white vanilla wafer cookies
Melt the candy in two separate double boilers. When melted, remove from the stove top and dip the wafer cookies or paint the chocolate on the lower two-thirds of each cookie. Allow the cookies to dry on waxed paper on a tray in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Next dip the top of each cookie into the black chocolate mixtures. Attach the cap piece of chocolate on each cookie. Chill again in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Pipe the eyes, the mouth and the stripes on each cookie and chill again for 15 minutes.
Store separated with waxed paper in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Perfect for football snacks.
