Tips on How to Make This Fun Football Brownie Recipe

Brownies, in general, are easy-peasy and loved by all. The frosting tip does most of the work in this quick football recipe but here are a few tips to make it go smoothly: 

Game Day Football Brownies
  • Use a brownie mix or box brownies if you have them on hand. No one except you will know.
  • Never over-mix a brownie batter – just ask your grandma, she’ll tell you that it’s something she learned from her mom. Incorporate the ingredients until there is no grit and leave it.
  • Turn these into football brownie bites easily by adding these football candy pieces and cutting them small.
  • If you want to learn how to cut brownies into football shapes, just get this cutter (easy) but you can also just bend a biscuit cutter.
  • Make it easy and grab cookie icing for the grass and football laces

Football and Field


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a sauce pan on medium-low heat, warm sugar, water, and chocolate chunks together until melted. Once fully melted, remove from pan and allow it to cool completely.
  3. In a bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla until just combined.
  5. Pour in the cooled, melted chocolate. Mix, but just until incorporated.
  6. Line a 9x9 inch dish baking dish with parchment. Pour in the mix and bake for 40 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
  7. Using the star tip in a piping bag loaded with green frosting, frost grass on the brownie by squeezing and lifting up, lessening the pressure.
  8. Melt dipping chocolate and dip a strawberry in before setting it to dry on parchment.
  9. Once hardened, use the white gel or frosting to decorate the laces. Place a strawberry on the brownie and your football brownies are done!
