Football season is finally here! Game day foods can be so much fun to make. We like keeping team spirit and excitement alive on days when we watch the game by making fun, football themed treats. One of the latest treats we made were these adorable Brach’s Football Cupcakes!
Brach’s Football Cupcakes are simple to make using Brach’s new football shaped candies. They are very similar in taste to a mellowcreme pumpkin, and are the perfect topper to these cute football themed treats! These cupcakes are very simple to make, so you don’t need to be a professional cake decorator to make them look good!
Other fun recipes:
Start by making the cupcakes as directed on the cake mix box. If you have a specific team you’re rooting for, you could always make it them team colors like these cupcakes. We just used white cake this time, so keep the treats neutral.
Use the star shaped icing tip to fill the top of the cupcake with little green icing stars. This will give the cupcake icing the appearance of grass for your to put your Brach’s Football candy on top of. We bought already dyed green icing, for the ease of use, but you could always buy white, and dye it yourself with some food coloring.
Add your Brach’s Football candy to the top of the cupcake. We found these candies at Walmart, in the fall candy section. One bag of the candies will do all twenty-four cupcakes easily. Store the cupcakes in an air-tight container to keep them soft until you’re ready to eat them. That’s all there is to it!
