1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 Tbsp. salted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 pkg. chocolate almond bark
Small tube of white deco icing OR 1 can of white frosting
Directions

Mix peanut butter and butter together, gradually stirring in powdered sugar until dough forms a ball
Cover and allow dough to sit for 15 minutes
Shape dough into small football shapes
Cover and refrigerate until firm
Melt chocolate according to package instructions
Dip peanut butter footballs into chocolate until coated, and allow to dry on wax paper
Use white icing for detail when dry (hint: If you don’t have white deco icing, you can transfer a portion of frosting to a zip-top bag and squeeze through a snipped corner of the bag to have more control)
