Tomorrow is a huuuuuge matchup for my Bills, so I really had to step up my game day cookies for my ESPN Radio crew! Our opposition is the Patriots! (Cue the Dr Evil laugh from Austin Powers) so, in the spirit of the holiday season and football, I present treat # 1 – chocolate cutout football sandwiches with a buttercream filling, colored green! I also found a chocolate extract to use in this recipe. If you don’t have it, you can always use vanilla
