AFTER MAKING THE RECIPE

After you make the recipe, there are still a few more steps to go to make these into the cute footballs that you see above. I allow the torte to rest for about 20 minutes and then I put it in the refrigerator for about an hour to get chilled and little hard. While the torte is chilling, here is what I do next:

1. Make your footballs.

The torte must be thoroughly chilled and you have to work fast. I can get about eight (8) footballs out of one torte. But you have to cut quickly and shape them quickly before the heat from your hands makes them start to melt a little.

I cut all nine shapes into something that resembles a diamond and then quickly shape from there.

2. Crunch up your SNICKERS

This is probably the most cathartic part of the entire recipe. There is just something so fun about using a meat tenderizer and pounding away.

I put the SNICKERS in two Ziploc bags. Once they are double bagged, I cover them with paper towels. Then I get the meat tenderizer and start hammering away. Make certain that your bag is on a cutting board so that you don’t hurt your counters.

3. Top your footballs with SNICKERS

Now just sprinkle the footballs with the SNICKERS. I usually press them in the top just slightly so they don’t fall off. Then I immediate refrigerate. I take them out about halfway through the party. They are the perfect treat for the game day gourmet.
