By February 4, 2011April 15th, 2019Cupcakes, Printable Cupcake Toppers, Special Events

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?? Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! Are you hosting a party? Or maybe attending?

I’m not a huge Football Fan, but I definitely love all the fun food. These Super Bowl Cupcakes were really fun to create. I started with a chocolate cupcake, added some grass, a Peanut Butter Truffle and printable toppers and wrapped them in a football cupcake wrapper.

Here is what you will need to create your own…

Football Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Truffles

Celebrate the Super Bowl with these Football Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Truffles from


  • Cupcakes {baked and cooled}
  • Buttercream Frosting, tinted green

Peanut Butter Truffles

  • 2 squares of white chocolate {I use Almond Bark}
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup Rice Krispie cereal {or other puffy cereal} crushed


Peanut Butter Truffle

  1. Melt chocolate in microwave for 1 minute, stir until completely melted.
  2. Add the peanut butter and stir well.
  3. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla and cereal.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Place in wax paper and place in fridge to chill for 2-3 hours.

  7. To form footballs, roll a small amount of peanut butter mixture into a ball.
  8. Then roll into a log shape, and then pinch the ends and flatten out the football, forming with your fingers.

  10. Melt chocolate {I use Almond Bark, found in the baking aisle} in the microwave.
  11. Dip the footballs until completely coated and place on a piece of wax paper.
  12. %
  13. It’s easier to put the wax paper on a cutting board or a plate, that way you can easily move them in and out of the fridge. The extra chocolate breaks off easily, so you don’t have to be perfect when dipping.
  14. After the footballs are set, add the seams with white frosting and a #3 tip.


  1. Bake and cool cupcakes.
  2. For the grass, fit your decorator bag with #233 tip from Wilton, then fill with green Buttercream Frosting. Hold the bag away from the cupcake a little bit and let the frosting fall onto the cupcake. It takes a little practice, but it’s not hard. If you don’t have the tip, or can’t find it, you could also frost the cupcake and use a tootpick or the tip of a small knife to create a similar look.

After the footballs are set, add the seams with white frosting and a #3 tip.

While the Truffles are setting up, create the toppers. You will need…

I found these fun printables over at BellaGrey Designs, she is part of the Martha Stewart Dreamers into Doers. You will need to download the printables {they’re FREE}, print them out and then cut them. I made mine square, but you could also cut them out with a hole punch like BellaGrey showed.

After you have them cut out, simply tape a lollipop stick to the back of the printable.

The Football Cupcake Wrappers were made with scrapbook paper, I used a simple pattern, cut them out and taped them around the cupcake. Add the Football Truffles and the topper.

So tell me…are the Packers or the Steelers going to win?? Make your prediction!!
