If you’re already a fan of marshallows and popcorn, you’re going to love this dessert that combines the two! With the help of a few strategic chocolate chips, these popcorn balls are easily transformed into your favorite game full of fancy feet.
- Chocolate Chips
- Canola Oil Spray
- Wax paper
- Cupcake Wrappers
Pop 6 cups of popcorn. This is a newer model version of the popper I’ve had and used for 8 years now and love!
I always make my marshmallow covered treats over the stove but you could easily adapt this recipe for the microwave. Melt 4 tbsp butter then melt one 4 cups of marshmallows. This is NOT the whole 10 oz bag. (Tip: If you ever want to make these in a different color, this is the step to add the food coloring!)
Once fully melted, turn off the stove and add the air popped popcorn. Use a wooden spoon to fold the popcorn in a little at a time.
Pour the mixture onto your tabletop lined with wax paper and allow to cool slightly.
Once cooled enough to be handled, spray Pam spray on your hands. Yep, it’s a messy food craft!
Grab a handful and use your hands to mold into a ball shape. This recipe actually made 9 balls that fit into cupcake wrappers.
Once mostly cooled, stick a few strategic chocolate chips into the ball to mimic the black parts of the soccer ball.
These look cute and are easy to display in a cupcake wrapper so keep your size in mind when forming.
These sticky treats would make a great after game treat for dessert addition for a soccer party!
Who doesn’t love a themed desert table??
