Superbowl snacks

This is the only way I get involved in anything football - fun shaped food.

I made these goodies for my hubby to take to his army unit during Superbowl weekend. I found football shaped pretzels and knew I wanted put them in Chex Mix (I love that stuff!!). I also made boiled cookies and shaped and decorated them like footballs. They are made from dark chocolate, oatmeal and peanut butter so they are practically health food :)

Boiled Cookies
4 Tbsp. butter
2 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
1/2 cup milk
Heat in large pot over medium heat until boiling. Boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and add:
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups quick oats
Stir until combined and drop Tablespoon sized cookies onto foil. Cool until firm.

*These are a favorite cookie from my childhood. I turn 8 years old everytime I taste one :)
