Be caused it’s always football season…. Chocolate covered peanut butter footballs

My co-worker, Kalonna, asked for instructions on how to make these.  You can see below a link to my baking video on my youtube channel.  I also shared it on facebook, Google plus, twitter path and tumblr.

You can use any cookie cutter to make these.  I chose footballs, even though it has been a loooooong time since my beloved Buffalo Bills played this time of year!

2 cups peanut butter, 1 cup butter,          2/3 cup brown sugar, 3 cups powdered sugar, chocolate chips, 1 tbs oil, cisco or butter.

In microwave proof bowl, combine peanut butter, butter and brown sugar.  Microwave 90 seconds to 2 minutes.  Mixture will be warm and a bit bubbly.  Stir smooth.  Add powdered sugar.  Mix well.  Let sit at room temp at least 15 minutes.  Using a cookie scoop, ice cream scoop or spoon, scoop out 2 tbs of dough.  Roll into a smooth ball and press into football cookie cutters.  Place on sheet or plate.  Chill and least 30 minutes.  In microwave proof bowl, melt for 45 seconds – 1 bag of chocolate chips and 1 tbs oil, crisco or butter.  Stir.  You may need to microwave in additional 20 second increments until it can be stirred smooth.  Cover peanut butter footballs.  Sprinkle with crushed oreos, candy etc to decorate.  Let set.  Store at room temp or in fridge.
