12 milk chocolate truffles, nuggets or kisses, unwrapped
1 (16 ounce) container white frosting
½ teaspoon green food coloring
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted
24 pretzel sticks
12 chocolate covered almonds
White decorating icing
Preheat oven to 325°. Place paper liners in a 12-count muffin pan. Prepare Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix according to package directions using water and butter.
Divide batter among paper liners. Press truffles into batter. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into edge of cupcakes (missing truffle) comes out clean. Cool completely.
In small bowl, combine white frosting and green food coloring; frost cupcakes. Place melted chocolate chips in a storage bag; seal. Cut a small tip off the corner. Using chocolate, glue 4 pretzel sticks together creating a goal post; repeat with remaining pretzels. Set aside to dry. Pipe white chocolate lines on almonds creating football laces.
Use white decorating icing to draw lines on cupcakes creating yard lines. Place almonds on cupcakes; place goal posts on half the cupcake; place goal posts on half the cupcakes.
Makes 12 cupcakes.
Tip: Gently press the tip of a fork into the frosting to create a grass-like effect.
