I know, I know. I’m a disgrace to women everywhere. Guys, there are lots of girls who care more about the game than the snacks and the commercials on Superbowl Tuesday (that’s a joke, I know the Superbowl is on Saturday). Don’t judge them according to my new obsession with these little football cookies that make me feel like a real fan.
Great, now that that’s out of the way: Check out these football whoopie pies! They’re adorable and delicious, and they’ll make you feel like a real fan!
Food blogger Sarah Sprague of Make Merry Events edited this Bon Appetít recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies with maple-marshmallow cream filling by using dark brown sugar instead of golden, and sifting a quarter cup of cocoa powder into the dry mix. A few extra steps, and voila, your pumpkin batter is football-colored.
Meanwhile, an egg-shaped baking tin and a little creative icing will carry you the rest of the way to these adorable football munchies.
Check out the full recipe here while I try to fake my way to a football-related joke to close. Just give me a second.
