Tightly pack 3 balls in varying sizes. Stick all the various body parts in, and then pray he doesn’t fall over or fall apart hahaha. Truth be told, mine kept falling over, and eventually fell apart. Maya didn’t care! She thought it was super cool and fun…so I’m still counting it as a WIN!!
I’ll admit. I didn’t think anything could replace ooey gooey sticky sugary marshmallows for popcorn balls, BUT….these are so dang good! No refined sugar, yet naturally sweetened with Raw Honey-YUM!! Oh, and 3 ingredients for the WIN!! What you need… (made 15 balls)
10 Cups of Popcorn (ok, so I cheated and used Skinny Pop) Yes, I could have easily popped my own, and it’s SO unlike me to pay more for something I can do myself. This is the exception. I eat it everyday, and being able to just pour some into my bowl in 15 seconds? WORTH EVERY PENNY! And, it only has 3 ingredients too, so… :)) Oh, and 10 cups is a rough guestimate when you have a toddler reaching in and eating as we went… 😉
1/4 Coconut Oil
1/2 Raw Honey
What to do…
Melt coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan.
Drizzle over the bowl of popcorn, stirring as you go. Then get down and dirty with your hands to make sure all the popcorn is evenly coated.
Put the bowl into the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to let it cool/solidify a little.
Scoop out in 1/2 scoops and really pack them into the balls. They are still a little crumbly, and you need to reeeeeeally pack them. I tried to let Maya help, but it really was more for her to feel included. Hers just kept falling apart…aka…she ate as she packed. 😉
Refrigerate until you eat, and enjoy!! Check back, because I made the cutest little DIY edible craft out of these. I honestly couldn’t believe it turned out exactly like I pictured in my head-that RARELY happens haha! 🙂
