Recipe Tips

1

Heat oven to 350°F.

Reserve 1 cookie for later use. Place remaining cookies in 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; spoon over cookies in muffin pans. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool in pans 5 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.

3

Meanwhile, use pretzels to make 2 goalposts on sheet of waxed paper. Drizzle with melted chocolate, then sprinkle with nonpareils. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

4

Remove and discard paper liners from cupcakes. Arrange cupcakes, with cookie sides up and sides touching, in rectangular shape on platter.

5

Spoon 1/4 cup frosting into pastry bag fitted with small round tip; reserve for later use. Spoon remaining frosting into medium bowl; stir in food coloring. Spoon into separate pastry bag fitted with star tip.

Pipe green frosting onto cupcakes to resemble grass on a football field as shown in photo; top with green sprinkles. Use some of the white frosting to decorate top of reserved cookie to resemble a football. Use remaining white frosting to add the lines and 50-yard marking on the football field.
