Are you ready for some football..lollipops?
Hubby and I have our own Super Bowl tradition. Since it's always on a Sunday, we are at church for the first half. I tape it so that we don't miss any of the good plays, plus we have time to pick up a pizza or wings and of course snacks.
There is just one small obstacle to overcome in my plan.
Or should I say say several? Smart phones!
You've heard of them..everybody has one..I have one.
But on this particular day, if I see you with one, I'm running the other way!
I've had Braves scores given away before I got the chance to get home and see the game for myself. I love my Braves baseball. And just for this one day, I love football too. So please, if you see me coming and you know the score..don't tell me. But if it does happen, all is not lost. At least I still have my game day goodies!
Today I made sweet little football field lollipops.
Enjoy the game everyone and may your team win!
Airheads (white), green Jolly Ranchers, chocolate covered almonds, canned white icing and lollipop sticks.
I am a seriously terrible piper, so instead of worrying about a piping catastrophe, I ended up using fondant and a mold to make my numbers. Click here to see the mold I used. Just dust the mold with powdered sugar and press in a rolled rope of fondant. I froze mine for a few minutes, used a small metal spatula to scrape off the excess and easily popped the numbers out!
I'm using Airheads white mystery flavor to make my football field lines.
I just rolled it slightly with my fondant roller and used a sharp knife dusted with powdered sugar to cut them.
Piping skills are nearly non-existent. #thestruggleisreal
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. You will bake candies for about 7 minutes.
Just keep an eye on them so they don't over melt.
Place the unwrapped Jolly Ranchers candies on a parchment lined pan. Place in preheated oven. When melted, remove from oven and gently twist in lollipop stick. Let cool completely on pan.
I attached the fondant and Airheads by lightly brushing water on the back of the candy. They will stick easily. I used just a dab of corn syrup on the lollipop to attach the "football".
Wishing You All A Blessed Day
