emergency tailgating conundrum: what do I do with this novelty collegiate-themed baking pan?

OK, so at christmas I get this novelty baking pan. It is silicone, and instead of muffin cups it has UGA G-shaped cups. Except they're not as deep as a muffin pan. Anyway, first home game is this weekend and I wanted to use it but I have no idea how to use it....my conundrum:

1. It is shallower than a muffn/cupcake pan, so it isn't really suitable for making cupcakes, plus you're supposed to present your baked good with the G facing upward, therefore doesn't make sense to make cupcakes or muffins where the G would be on the bottom.

2. Seems that brownies would be too gooey to keep the G shape.

3. Seems like the G cup (yes, that's the only phrase I can think of) would be too big for any sort of cookie dough. The cookies would cook unevenly and I don't know if they would show the G shape. However, they would be easiest to decorate (uh, if I cared that much).

So what in the heck can I do with it that would be suitable for an outdoor tailgate? The only thing I can think is peanut butter cookies, since I often make them in muffin tins already when I make brown-eyed suzies. Of course there's always jello shots...but these would be some honkin' jello shots and I'm not sure exactly how to store them (usually make jellies in the dixie cups and then keep them in the fridge). Here's a pic:

Unfortunately the only one I could find is of an AU logo, but you get the idea:
