Are you ready for the opening day of the football season or Fantasy Football Draft or both?
What is football season without football themed treats?
I’m amazed at all the different food combos people can shape into footballs! The Pinterest Football Foodies are so creative!
And so I thought, why not? Let’s make fudge into the shape of a football and decorate the football with white chocolate.
Football fudge for a football party theme menu! Sounded like a good idea.
And I might add in my defense, I still think it is a good idea. As with any new idea or recipe, there is some tweaking to be done. Usually my rule is by the third time you make or bake a new recipe, the third time is usually the charm, all those little lessons have been ironed out and the recipe is good to go.
How To Make Fantasy Football Fudge
I am a traditionalist and used the “Original Fantasy Fudge” recipe I wrote about earlier; that is the fudge recipe I grew up with and remains my favorite and go to fudge recipe to this day.
Instead of using a 13 X 9 pan, I poured the football fudge onto a parchment covered baking sheet. So far, so good. Pour the fudge quickly and gingerly, smooth the top of the fudge with a spatula. The goal (no pun intended) is an even layer of fudge.
Set the fudge. I put the fudge in the refrigerator to set up quicker and firmer. Still so far, so good.
Use football shaped cookie cutters or a football stencil to cut your fudge footballs. I made a football cut out from parchment paper. Carefully remove each fudge football with a spatula; spray a little cooking spray on the spatula if extra help is needed. The project was beginning to come off the rails.
Enjoy all the leftover fudge scraps! Then the proverbial wheels began to leave the project.
Melt white chocolate chips or candy bark in the microwave and transfer chocolate to a decorating bag.
Pipe the white chocolate football laces onto the fudge.

How Not To Decorate Your Fudge Footballs
Whoa! Problem. Problem(s). Problem.
Did I forget to mention I am not the best free hand ‘artist’, a term I use very loosely. I think the photos tell the sad sad little football story.
And so I went to plan B, make chocolate cupcakes and put a football decoration on the top, nestled in the icing.
Let the football season begin!
Enjoy your Fantasy Football fudge.
I know you can do it!

What a clever idea for a football game party! I’m not big on football but I am on fudge!
Me too – I am all for fudge!
Bill Kasman says
Where there’s a will there’s a way!
So darn true! Fudge must prevail….

I’m not a football fan, but I love fudge. At least you tried to get into the spirit of the season.
I did give it the college try… edible just not pretty!
