It is very beneficial to read entire directions before buying the ingredients and making this dish.
for hands OR Pam.
Raspberry Jell-O (small package.)
You may use what ever flavor you like though.
Regular popped popcorn ( remove hard uncooked kernels, (You don't want to chip a tooth.)
, NOTE: I used Cool whip but Marshmallow cream wood be much better!

, is usually in the ice cream section of the store next to the toppings.
Here is a link on how to make your own with just 3 ingredients. Magic shell is about 5 dollars for a small bottle. http://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Magic-Shell-Recipe/
Cherries in a small jar.
Try the ice cream section of the store or canned fruit section.
Crushed pecans for garnish.
Clear dessert dish
. The small dessert dish was easier and the outcome was better than a wine glass as pictured.
I thought it was easier to hand mold the balls rather than use an ice cream scooper because you need to make some small balls for the smaller part of the dessert dish
Wet wipes ( opitional)
NOTE: This treat is a sticky treat so for a party I would have wet wipes available at each setting. Place any left over balls in a clear bowl for finger treats. You might be able to use melted white chocolate to resemble the whip cream and then top with the nuts and a cherry to create a more eater friendly treat. You might even try Hershey's kisses for the top and make a small indention into the ice cream ball to set the cherry.
