Classic Black and White Football Party

With football season in just a few weeks, I invited some of my girlfriends to get together for a classic football party before we lose our husbands to weekends in front of the TV rooting for their favorite teams. I drew inspiration from the black and white referee uniforms for the decorations, and served fun wrapped chocolate candy bars and Snickers Football Truffles.

It was such a fun night, I wanted to share all the details with you!

Mars Candy Bars at Sams Club

I shopped at Sams Club for our party supplies, including some Snickers bars and a variety bag of Mars chocolate candy. You can’t have a party without chocolate, right?

And here’s the invitation that I sent to my girlfriends. Fun, right?

I wanted to come up with a fun, sophisticated dessert with the Snickers bars, and these Snickers Football Truffles were just what I was looking for. They are decadent and rich and went perfectly with the light bites and wine that I served at the party.

Ingredients:
1/2 c semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 c heavy cream
2 Snickers bars, chopped
1 c chocolate candy melts
1/4 c white chocolate candy melts

Directions:

Warm the heavy cream over medium heat until just warm. Don’t let it boil. Pour over the semisweet chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate is melted.

Chop the Snickers bars and stir the pieces into the melted chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for about 2-3 hours, until the mixture is firm, but can still be molded.

Scoop by the teaspoon and mold into a football shape. The less you handle it, the better. Place on wax paper and put in freezer for several hours, or overnight.

When ready, melt chocolate candy melts according to package directions. Coat truffles in chocolate and allow to harden. I did two coats to make them look smoother.

Melt the white candy melts, and draw laces onto the hardened truffles. Can be stored in an air-tight container for up to two days in the refrigerator.

I also cut some of the Mars fun-sized candy bars into squares, and added x’s and o’s to the top using white candy melts. I served these on another tray with green shredded coconut to resemble a playbook.
