Superbowl Football Black Moons

Everyone’s always looking for ingenious ways to make food for Superbowl Sunday that go with the football theme. These Black Moons are the same delicious Black Moons I always make only renamed Superbowl Football Black Moons in honor of Superbowl Sunday.

They are super easy to make, but take a little extra time shaping into a football shape. Normally I use a spring loaded scoop to drop batter onto coolie sheet. To make these football shape, you have to use the tip of a knife and draw out to a point on each end, to form the shape of a football.  This forming tends to flatten down the batter some, but they come out a super football shape. These are a hit no matter what shape you make. And your Superbowl guests will love you for it!
