Hey guys, it’s Ro! Super Bowl is just aroundthe corner, I’m gonna be having some friends over this Sunday to celebrate.
And, I’m gonna be making some football themed treats today.
We are gonna be making something sweet, savoryand refreshing! The first treat that I’m gonna be makingare these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Football cookies! The things you will need, will be: 2-1/2 cups of flour, 1 cup of packed brownsugar, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of creamy peanut butter, white chocolatemelts, milk chocolate melts, 1 cup of butter, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of bakingsoda, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, anda football shaped cookie cutter.
The first thing that we’re gonna do is creamtogether our butter and sugar, so this is both our regular butter and peanut butter, and both of our sugars.
And then mix it up until it’s smooth andcombined! Alright, that’s what it should look like, and now we’re gonna add 1 egg and mix it up again.
The next thing that we’re gonna do is addin our baking soda, powder, and vanilla extract and mix it up! Lastly, we’re gonna add our flour, Ilike to add it 1/2 at a time so it doesn’t make a big dust cloud….
Butif you like dust clouds, go for it! Then we’re gonna mix it in! Now our dough is ready, it smells so good.
I’m resisting and not eating it right now! So the first thing that you’regonna do is take a little bit of flour, sprinkling it on top of your worksurface, so that it won't stick.
Here we go! Now we’re gonna roll it out, and if it’sstill a little sticky you can add a little more flour on top.
I’m rolling the dough about 1/4 inch thick.
So now that we have our dough rolled about1/4 inch thick, now we’re gonna cut out all of our little football cookies.
Soyou’re just gonna take your cookie cutter and cut out as many as you can.
Doo-doo-doo! So I just press down, give ita little jiggle.
Now you’re gonna remove the excess dough, just peel it.
I put the excess cookie dough in a pile overhere, and I’m gonna roll it out and make some more cookies.
And then withthe cookies that we have ready we’re gonna take a little spatula and we’re gonnaplace them over here onto a non-stick, ungreased baking sheet.
Once you’ve got all your cookies on a bakingsheet, we’re gonna pop these in the freezer for about 10 minutes to chillso that they will hold their shape while they’re baking.
Then we’re gonna pop them in the oven at350 degrees and bake for about 8 minutes.
Once our cookies have baked andhad plenty of time to cool, now we are going to decorate them, this part isfun! So we’re taking our peanut butter cookieand making it a chocolate peanut butter cookie! Yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum-yum! Over here I’ve melted the milk chocolateand I’ve put it into a plastic baggie with a number 2 tip for a little bitmore control.
And I’m just gonna pipe on the shape ofa football.
Weee-ooop! Then I’m just gonna fill it in! I’m using a toothpick to smooth it out.
We gave the chocolate a few minutes to harden, and now, I’ve melted the white chocolate, put it into a plastic baggiewith a number 1 tip, to have a little bit more control, and now I’m gonnaice on the chocolate details.
I’m just gonna make some little laces.
And there you have it, here are all of thePeanut Butter and Chocolate Football Cookies that we made! The next thing that we’re gonna be makingis something savory, we’re gonna be making Football Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
The things you’ll need will be: A loaf ofdark of dark brown bread, I’m using a Sweet Wheat & Oat by Wholesome Harvest, a football shaped cookie cutter, some Mayonnaise, cheddar cheese slices, anda little bit of butter.
The first thing that we’re gonna do is cutour little football cheese shapes out of our sliced cheddar cheese.
These arereally cool slices, look at these, they kind of look like smiley face!But, these are made specifically for quesadillas, if you want to make a quesadilla, you can fold it in half.
I had to get these ones because the typicalsquares did not fit this big of a football cookie cutter.
So you’re gonnaplace your little cookie cutter down, dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee! And then remove the excess cheese.
Here’s our little cheese! We’ve got all of our slices of cheese cutout, and now I’m gonna do the exact same thing to our little pieces of bread, so you’re gonna get a little piece of bread, and cut it out! We’re gonna cut out the rest of our bread slicesand then we’re gonna take all these over to the stove! Turn your stove burner onto medium low heatand add a little bit of butter into the pan and move it around until it’sall melted.
Place your first piece of bread into the pan.
Next, add your cheese, I’m using 2 slicesper sandwich, place ‘em right on top.
And then you’re gonna place another pieceof bread on the top.
After a few minutes, flip your grilled cheesesandwich over and cook for a couple more minutes.
Once you can see thatthe cheese has melted and both sides are toasted, remove from the heat.
Here we’ve got our grilled cheese sandwichesright off the stove, they’re still warm, and while they’restill warm, I’m gonna pipe some details! This part is totally optional, they alreadylook like little footballs, but I’m gonna put some little laces on themwith a little bit of mayonnaise! I scooped some mayonnaise into a plastic baggie, with a number 2 tip, and I’m just gonna pipe on some laces, herewe go! And at last, here are all the grilled cheesesandwiches that we made today, you can make as many as you’d like for asmany guests as you have coming over.
The last thing that we’re gonna be makingis something refreshing, we are gonna be making these Green Goal Post Smoothies.
The things you will need, will be: 4 glasses, 1-1/2 cups of water, 2 cups of fresh spinach, 1 cup of pineapple, 1-1/2 tablespoons of agave nectar, 2 bananas, you’re gonna need them to befrozen, so be sure to freeze these ba-nan-ees! Some limes, then to decoratewe’re gonna need some scotch tape, a hole punch, white paint pen, a flatedged decorating tool, and some yellow straws! The first thing that we’re gonna do is we’regonna be making these goal post straws! To make 1 goal post you’llneed 3 straws, just a good thing to know.
And the first thing that you’regonna do is bend ‘em.
He’s starting to look like a goal post!And then you’re gonna cut it about 2 inches, inch and a 1/2.
That’s 1 sideof the goal post, and then we’re gonna bend the other 1.
Roop! This 1’s gonna be a much shorter cut.
Nowwe’re gonna stick ‘em together, you’re gonna stick the shorter 1 insidethe larger 1.
Then you’re gonna take your hole punch, and you’re gonna cut the bottom of the goalpost, right here.
But just on thebottom, not on the top.
Now we’ve got the top of the goal post, and now we’re gonna make the bottom.
We’re just gonna cut off the bendy part.
Now we are gonna connect them, it's very easy, you’re just gonna take your stem, ra-doop! Put it on the top of the goal post.
Da-dew!There you have it, and now you can make as many as you’d like! For however many drinks you’re making.
Next we’re gonna be decorating our glasseswith the yard lines, I’ve already decorated these ones, and with thisone, I’m gonna show you how to do it.
You’re gonna take a piece of scotch tape, and stick it all the way down so that we will be making a straight line.
And depending on how tall your glasses, you’re just gonna want todivide it into 6 lines.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6! Then, we’re gonna make6 longer lines, and we’re using the edge of the tape asa guide.
And then between each line we’re gonna do 4 shorter lines.
Now we’re gonna write the yard number, startingwith 50 at the bottom and working our way towards G! Touchdown! Now you can remove the tape, dothis to as many glasses as you want.
And, we’re gonna let them sitout to dry for a few minutes before we fill ‘em.
Now we’re gonna make our Green Smoothie!There are so many recipes for green machine smoothies out there, and thishappens to be one of my favorites.
It’s very, very simple, ittastes a little bit healthy because there’s a lot of fresh spinach, but, I really like it.
We’re just gonna put everything into theblender, so we’re gonna put in pineapple, our water, agave nectar, 2 bananas, remember, you want to use frozen bananas, these ones are frozen.
You want to peel ‘em first and then put them in the freezer.
And thenlisten! These are, these are cold! See!? This is a frozen banana! And then our spinach! Oh you guys! Look at this! Yum-yum-yum! OK, now you’re just gonna put the lid onand mix it up! Let’s put this on high… Oh yeah! OK, here we go! Oh yes! I love this green drink! OK, I’m gonna show you how to assemble 1of these.
We’re just gonna fill him up, berroooopp! Yummy-yummy-yummy! Now you’re gonna add your little straw, bloop! And then, this part is totally optional, butI took a lime, cut it into fourths, and I used this littleflat edged decorating tool to just carve the little laces.
Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo! Then we’re just gonna stick it on the side, to make it look like somebody’s kicking a field goal.
