These delicious cookie dough truffles use an egg-free recipe that you don’t have to worry about eating raw. Even better, they’re a great way to make your food match your party theme. On game day, everyone is used to cheesy dips and comfort food, so surprise them with these football shaped desserts.

  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 pound chocolate for melting
  • White icing for decorating
  1. In an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar. Add vanilla. With mixer on low, slowly add in the flour until completely incorporated. It will be very dry, but that’s okay.
  2. Mix in milk until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour. The dough should be very firm.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out dough and roll into balls. Form into an oval by pinching the ends until it takes the shape of a football. Place on a baking tray in lines and refrigerate again for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Melt chocolate in microwave, stirring every 45 seconds. Dip the footballs into melted chocolate and place them on a lined baking tray.
  5. Allow the chocolate to harden at room temperature then use the white icing to pipe on the laces for the footballs.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
