So here’s the little spread I put together for my husband and his brothers for SUNDAY FOOTBALL! My husbands mom had made everyone a FABULOUS dinner, so I volunteered to bring the dessert. I also ended up finding these FREE printables (yay!) from my cute friend Rebecca at Fresh Chick Designs. They are perfect for throwing a football party!

Homemade oreos, chocolate chip cookies, popcorn, PB m&m’s, root beer … my kind of treats! Smile The boys all enjoyed them as well and had a good time hanging out watching the game. I love getting to spend time with our family!

And here is the recipe since I know you’re all dying to try these ;) …

Did you make this recipe?

Homemade Oreos {Football Style}


  • 2 packages of devils food cake
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 sticks of butter (softened)


  • 1 stick of cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 stick of butter (softened)
  • 2 cips of powdered sugar
  • 1 TB vanilla


Heat oven to 350. Mix devils food cake, eggs and butter together. Roll dough into a ball and push flat on pan. For the foot balls I just used my hands to form a football… but think long skinny footballs so they have room to expand. Put them in the oven and bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove cookies from pan and allow to cool.

While the cookies are cooling whip up your cream cheese frosting. Combine cream cheese and butter. Once smooth slowly add in the powdered sugar. Once it reaches a good consistency you can add in the vanilla.

Grab a cookie and frost the BOTTOM of the cookie and then grab ANOTHER cookie to put on top. Now you have your self YUMMY homemade oreos. Which actually taste nothing like oreos, but in my opinion taste WAY better!
