Spooky Halloween Treats

Popcorn Ball Monsters

1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow crème
Violet and Green Icing colors (from Wilton)
4 cups popped popcorn, divided
White Candy Melts Candy, melted following package instructions (from Wilton)
Large Candy Eyeballs (from Wilton)
Jumbo Confetti Sprinkles (from Wilton)
Animal Sprinkle Set (from Wilton)
Candy corn
Green and black candy strings

Spray cavities of Dimensions Multi-Cavity Mini Pumpkin Pan (from Wilton) with vegetable pan spray.

In large, microwave-safe bowl, microwave marshmallow crème for 1 minute at 50% power. Remove from microwave and divide marshmallow crème in half. Stir violet icing color into one half (tint slightly darker than how you want your finished treat to look) and green icing color into other half. Stir 2 cups popped popcorn into each marshmallow mixture, mixing until evenly coated.

Press popcorn treat mixture in bottom cavities only of pumpkin pan, to 1 1/2 inches deep; reserve some unmolded popcorn. Let set, then unmold.

Attach 2 popcorn ball halves together on one edge, using unmolded popcorn to prop opposite edge open. Using melted White Candy Melts candy, attach Large Candy Eyeballs and Jumbo Confetti Sprinkles for noses. Attach Animal Sprinkles and candy corn for the teeth, and then attach candy strings for hair.
