With football season in full swing, my husband and I love cheering on our favorite college football team. I thought it would be fun to make some cute treats for the next BYU football game. These easy helmet and football pops were perfect for the occasion! They take just a few short minutes to make and are a fun treat for watching the game or for a football or Super Bowl party.
Chocolate Football Pops Supplies:
- Football candy molds
- Make n Mold squeeze bottles
- Make n Mold candy melts in desired colors
- Make n Mold lollipop sticks
- Darice treat bags
Step 1. Melt the candy melts in your desired colors in the squeeze bottles according to the manufacturer’s directions.
Step 2. For the football pops, I started with the white for the stitching and the white stripe on each end of the balls. To get the white one the ball, I simply filled in the lines on the mold by squeezing the squeeze bottle filled with melts, and let harden after a few minutes. Repeat the same process for the white on the helmets. Let harden.
Step 3. Finish the rest of the football pops by adding brown candy melts over the white and filling in the mold. Repeat the same process for the helmets, using your desired color. Tap the mold lightly a few times on the counter to get any air bubbles out and to smooth the backs of the pops. You can either be patient or place the pops in the fridge for about 10 minutes to speed up the hardening process.
Step 4. Once the football pops are hard, gently twist the mold, and release the pops by holding the mold upside down to release them. Place the pops in the treat bags. Tie the bottom of the treat bags with ribbon or any other creative way that you can think of.
These football pops were a hit with the kids, and were a fun addition to our game night.
I hope you give them a try!
