Chocolate Peanut Butter Edible Cookie Dough Footballs: A Sweet Recipe for the Big Game

Touchdown! Decorated to look just like the classic pigskin, these fun cookie dough footballs are the perfect sweet treat for gameday. Chocolate and peanut butter are a winning combination. These cute little edible cookie dough footballs are really easy to make for your big game get-together.

Wondering why you bake the flour first for this recipe? Raw flour can contain bacteria (think e. coli and salmonella), so the flour must reach a temperature of 160 degrees F before it's safe to eat. The process is easy. The flour is poured evenly onto a baking sheet and baked in a 350-degree F oven for about 5 minutes. Cool the flour and it is ready for your edible dough.

For some crunch, you could add 1/2 cup of chopped peanuts in step two of the recipe. Keep these sweet edible dough footballs refrigerated until you're ready to serve for dessert or snacking.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate baking chips

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the flour evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool completely at room temperature.
  2. Beat the toasted flour, peanut butter, butter, sugar, brown sugar, milk and salt together in a large bowl until smooth, using a hand mixer.
  3. Roll the dough into 1 tablespoon-sized balls. Form the balls into football shapes and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 10 to 15 minutes until firm.
  4. Meanwhile, microwave the semisweet chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl in 30-second increments, stirring between each increment, until melted and smooth. Repeat with the white chocolate. Transfer the melted white chocolate to a resealable plastic bag and cut a tip from the corner of the bag. Set aside for piping.
  5. Dip the chilled peanut butter footballs in the melted semisweet chocolate to coat. Return to the rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate until set, about 5 minutes.
  6. Pipe white chocolate lines resembling laces with the onto each peanut butter football.
