Super Bowl Kid-Friendly Sweets

Hey everyone! The Super Bowl is quickly approaching and as you all already know, I love a good theme and any excuse to bake something sweet. I prepared these easy and delectable sugar wafer referee cookies and salted caramel Rice Krispie footballs (see image below). Keep reading to find out how you can make these at home!

INGREDIENTS: (referee cookies)

  • Sugar Wafers
  • Wilton Bright White Candy Melts (available at your local craft store)
  • Wilton Black Candy Melts
  • Candy eyeballs (available at your local craft store)
  • A piping bag or ziplock baggie

INSTRUCTIONS: (referee cookies)

  1. Melt the white candy melts in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals until it is melted. It is very easy to burn chocolate so do not overheat.
  2. Dip cookie 3/4 into white chocolate and let dry for 5 minutes on parchment paper.
  3. Use a knife or scissors to cut a few black wafers in half to make the referee hats.
  4. Melt the black candy melts and dip the tops of the wafer into it. Attach the hat you just made before the chocolate harden.s
  5. Let dry for 10 minutes.
  6. Dab a dot of the already melted chocolate where you would like your eyeballs to go. I used a toothpick to do this.
  7. Attach eyes and let sit for additional 5 minutes.
  8. Put remaining black candy wafer in a piping bag and pip 4-6 lines for the referee uniform. (This was the hardest part for me as I can’t seem to draw a straight line).
  9. Let harden and enjoy!

    1. Jen, you ask: who am I to judge when he's being obedient to God? Umm, somebody who just got told by God that you should be making that judgement? Surely a promise to obey "as he obeys" the Lord is the opposite of a reason to just always obey and instead is a requirement to only obey if in your judgement he is in line with the Lord.
