I love hosting the Super Bowl party every year. A lot of planning goes into serving the perfect menu. Finger foods, main courses, drinks and of course desserts… lots of Super Bowl desserts. Most of all I love baking cookies for my guests to snack on after a great meal.

I have always been a fan of peanut butter cookies. They are delicious,  nutritious and all-American. Peanut Butter Cookies are the perfect treat for the Super Bowl if only  they would represent the game. So I took a favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and shaped them into little football cookies. The chocolate laces make them adorable and delicious. I hope you enjoy these Super Bowl cookies at your Super Bowl party.
