Whether you and your kids are football fanatics or can't even name the two teams playing this Sunday (that'd be the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, fyi!), get your kids in the Super Bowl spirit with these fun, football-themed treats. They're sure to elicit sideline cheers. And the MVP? That'll be you, Mama!

Football cakes? Whoopie! Laura McGlynn of MakeMerryEvents.com made these amazing-looking mini cakes using a pumpkin cake batter in an egg-shaped tin, slicing the "footballs" in half, and filling the middle with crème -- also used to make the "laces."

For a new spin on chocolate, try these football-shaped truffles from Bakerella.com, made by forming a truffle mix into football shapes, dipping them in melted chocolate bark, then dipping the ends in white chocolate, then dipping the tips back in chocolate and piping the laces on. Score!

Pop On Over
Cake pops don't need to be round -- and footballs don't need to be brown! We love this fun, colorful spin on the ubiquitous cake pop from Raleigh Cake Pops. Order a dozen, or make your own version using melted chocolate and pink candy melts.

Super Bowl parties and junk food tend to go hand in hand, but you can sneak in a slightly healthier treat by making chocolate covered strawberry footballs. Just dip the berries in melted chocolate and then pipe on laces with melted white chocolate. Touchdown!
