Oreos have Gameday Style



It's that time of year when national food companies shape some of their products into footballs. My personal favorite that I stock up on is the football Oreo.

The Oreo website, www.nabiscoworld.com, doesn't have the football 
Oreos in their list of 54 (yes!) different Oreo products, but here it is......in the flesh:
Everybody's All-American, the football Oreo

Thank you to Nabisco for making a product tailgate stylish enough to simply buy at the store, throw it into the tailgate bins and go.  But wait.  If that isn't enough work for you, Nabisco has a recipe on their website for football Oreo cookie balls.  
And you can use any shaped Oreo for these:




Here is another version, beautifully done by Bakerella:



Bakerella calls them Oreo truffles.  Click here for the the how-tos.  
There are lots of fun pictures, like this,  included:


 I am quite positive your guests will gobble up your Oreo truffles whether shaped as a football or a "footblob", so footblobs are definitely not a problem.  However, if you just happen to eat all of the truffle mixture straight out of the bowl, a package of football Oreos will ensure that you have something football-shaped to eat at your tailgate.
