Adorable chocolate football how-to

 
Cute up your Super Bowl celebration with chocolate-covered almonds dressed up to look like pigskins. We love these piled high in a pretty bowl or perched atop a batch of cupcakes. 

Ingredients:
Chocolate covered almonds (we like Tuxedo brand, but you can use anything--even a different nut or chocolate-covered something, just make sure it's an oblong shape)
White decorating gel icing
Optional: latex gloves to help ya handle the nuts without smudging the chocolate
 
Directions:
All you're gonna do is use the white icing to recreate the laces you would see on a football. Draw one long, lateral line, then cross it with four shorter lines. Set your almonds on a sheet of wax paper and let the icing dry, then eat 'em up!
