Fast and Easy Game Day Brownies

This fast and easy "last minute" brownie idea is from my friend Betty.
A store mix and ready made icing!!!
I would place them on a green napkin to resemble a football field or on a team color napkin.

1box (1 lb 2.4 oz) Betty Crocker® Original Supreme Premium brownie mix
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
Betty Crocker® white decorating icing (from 4.25-oz tube

Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Line 9-inch square pan with foil, letting foil hang 2 inches over sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray.

In medium bowl, stir brownie mix, chocolate syrup, oil, water and eggs until well blended. Spread in pan.

Bake 34 to 37 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.

Using foil to lift, remove brownies from pan. With football-shaped cookie cutter, cut brownies into football shapes. Pipe on decorating icing to look like football laces.

(No football cookie cutter? You can use a knife. Just cut the brownies into 8 rectangles (4 rows by 2 rows). Trim corners of each rectangle to make a football shape.

For smaller footballs, cut brownies into 2x1-inch rectangles and trim to make football shapes.)

These are cute. And the best part is you can eat the pieces that didn't make it into the football shapes! For my parties today I made football helmet cookies (colored like the Green Bay Packers, of course, even though they are not playing) and an angel food cake. Two parties = two foods. Happy Superbowl Sunday!
