Looking for game day food ideas to showcase your team spirit? These Peanut Butter Phyllo Minis are sure to score big at your next party.

  • 2 packages (15 count, each) Athens® Phyllo Shells
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 3/4 cup pretzel M&M’s®, chopped
  • Fondant, colors of choice


For added crispness, preheat oven to 350⁰F. Place empty shells on a baking sheet and bake for 3–5 minutes.

In a medium bowl beat together butter and peanut butter until creamy. Gradually add in confectioner’s sugar. Stir in M&M pieces. Fill each shell, smoothing the filling flat on top.

With a rolling pin, roll-out small pieces of fondant to about the thickness of a dime. With a knife, or using a small round cookie cutter, cut circles about 1 1/2” diameter. This will be the backdrop of your design. Using fondant cutters or a small knife, cut letters or shapes out of your team’s color fondant. Use a clean, damp paint brush to brush the backs of the pieces and gently press onto your backdrop. This will help them to adhere. Gently press the fondant on top of the filled shell.
