Football Fudge Brownies


  • 1 package of 13 x 9 chocolate fudge brownies
  • Additional ingredients listed on fudge package
  • White writing gel


  1. Cook the fudge brownies according to the directions on the back of the box that they came in.
  2. Once the fudge brownies are cooked and have cooled down to room temperature, take a football-shaped (or oval-shaped) cookie cutter and punch out as many football-shaped pieces of the fudge brownies as you can (with the cookie cutter we had, we got seven football-shaped brownies out of each batch).
  3. Take the writing gel and duplicate the design seen in the photos below.

These came out looking so cute ! This isn’t so much a recipe as it is a decorating idea, something to give your snacks a football theme.

Take care everybody !

Restaurant-Style Salsa

Pre-season football has started and my dad is happier than a pig in mud ! Here’s a salsa recipe we found that’s great to enjoy for any game or party.


  • 1 (28-oz.) can whole tomatoes with juice
  • 2 (10-oz. each) cans Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (we used the original type)
  • ¼ cup chopped onion (we used ½ cup of Vidalia onions)
  • 1 jalapeño, quartered lengthwise and sliced thinly afterwards (we used a serrano)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (we used 2 large garlic cloves)
  • ¼ tsp. sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt (we used kosher salt)
  • ¼ tsp. ground cumin
  • Juice of half a lime
  • ½ cup cilantro (or more to taste) (we just went with ½ cup)


  1. In a food processor or blender (we used a food processor), add all the ingredients to it.
  2. Pulse the mixture until you get the consistency you want (we pulsed until it was as smooth as we could get it).
  3. Serve with chips (we liked eating the salsa with Tostitos Tortilla Hint of Lime Chips).

You can eat this right after you’re done making it but we find that the salsa is at its tastiest after it’s been left in the fridge overnight.

We got this recipe from a Ree Drummond cookbook.

We weren’t paid in any form to mention Rotel, Tostitos, or Ree Drummond.
