I like that they're both cute and a little gory.
( I thought I was the first person that had come up with popcorn ball brains. I was so excited! But it turns out I'm not. :P )
Step 1: Ingredients + Tools
- 10.5 bag of mini marshmallows
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- 6 cups of popcorn
- red food coloring
- Crisco, for coating your hands
- a small paintbrush
- parchment or wax paper
Step 2: Prep Work
Once that's done, add 2-4 drops of red food coloring, until it's pink enough for you.
Step 3: Mix the Marshmallow and Popcorn
Coat your hands in a layer of Crisco and continue mixing everything together.
Step 4: Shape the Balls
Set the finished balls aside on a piece of parchment or wax paper.
You can even put each ball on a wooden skewer if you're worried about sticky hands.
Step 5: Paint on Them!
Use a thin paintbrush to paint the mixture along the crevices of the popcorn. Yay for gore!
Let dry for a bit, and then you're ready to serve! :D
