1 (19.5-ounce) box chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
1 (4.67-ounce) box chocolate mint candies, chopped
1 (16-ounce) can white frosting
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
Green food color
White decorating gel
18 chocolate-covered almonds

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.

2. Add the chopped chocolate mints to the cake batter; mix well. Pour the batter into the lined cups.

3. Bake for 26 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

4. In a medium bowl, combine the frosting with the peppermint extract and 8 to 10 drops green food color until desired shade of green (for grass). Frost the cupcakes when cool.

5. Using the decorating gel, create yard lines by drawing two lines across each cupcake; add a number. Place a chocolate-covered almond between the two lines on each cupcake and draw football stitching lines on each. Serve, or keep loosely covered until ready to serve.
