We are huge Disney fans at our house, so when we were asked to host a DisneySide home party we were thrilled. I’ll be sharing the party next week, but for today’s Fabulously Frugal Link Party I’m showing you how to make these super cute little Mickey Mouse Mini Popcorn Balls. They are super easy to make, very budget friendly, and bring a little Disney fun in to your snack time or party. Read on to find out how to make them and link up your own frugal posts to the link party below.
To start, follow the complete directions for our Mini Popcorn Lollipops Recipe here. When you are mixing the popcorn and marshmallow/butter mixture together, sprinkle in a liberal amount of rainbow sprinkles. In edition to the ingredients from that recipe you’ll need the following:
- rainbow sprinkles
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 48 M&Ms or other round candy
Once you’ve rolled your mini popcorn balls and placed them in the mini cupcake liners, melt your chocolate chips with one tablespoon of water (I used the microwave.). Stir well and then pour the mixture in to a plastic sandwich bag or icing bag. Cut the tip off the bag and squeeze the chocolate in a circular pattern on top of each popcorn ball. You want to do your best to make it look like the Mickey Mouse hats sold at Disney Parks. As soon as you are done icing the popcorn balls with chocolate, stick two round candies on the top of each ball. Make sure they are secured in the chocolate. Enjoy!
