Prep time: 1 hour 15 mins
Total time: 1 hour 15 mins
Ingredients
  • 25 OREO Cookies, divided
  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) devil's food cake mix – I used the Hy-Vee brand
  • 8 pretzel sticks (4 inch)
  • 2 oz. white baking chocolate, melted
  • 1 tsp. EACH yellow and red nonpareils
  • 2 containers (16 oz. each) ready-to-spread white frosting, divided – I used the Hy-Vee brand
  • ¼ tsp. green food coloring (about 24 drops)
  • ¼ cup green sprinkles
  • 22 SOUR PATCH KIDS Soft & Chewy Candies
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Reserve 1 cookie for later use. Place remaining cookies in 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; spoon over cookies in muffin pans. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool in pans 5 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, use pretzels to make 2 goalposts on sheet of waxed paper. Drizzle with melted chocolate, then sprinkle with nonpareils. Let stand until chocolate is firm.
  4. Remove and discard paper liners from cupcakes. Arrange cupcakes, with cookie sides up and sides touching, in rectangular shape on platter.
  5. Spoon ¼ cup frosting into pastry bag fitted with small round tip; reserve for later use. Spoon remaining frosting into medium bowl; stir in food coloring. Spoon into separate pastry bag fitted with star tip.
  6. Pipe green frosting onto cupcakes to resemble grass on a football field as shown in photo; top with green sprinkles. Use some of the white frosting to decorate top of reserved cookie to resemble a football. Use remaining white frosting to add the lines and 50-yard marking on the football field.
  7. Insert goal posts into top of cake, then decorate top of cake with football cookie and SOUR PATCH KIDS Candies just before serving.
