What Ball-Shaped Foods Can I Take to a Theme Party?

Good Questions

Q: I have been invited to a themed party to which all the guests have to bring a ball-shaped food item. People go all out for this party. There are even prizes!

However, beyond the rice ball and the meatball, I am short on ball-shaped foods. Any advice?

Editor: Alison, wow, that sounds like quite a party! Here are a few ideas that come to mind:

Cake pops
Bacon pops
Mochi ice cream balls
Peanut butter popcorn balls
• Cheese balls, like this blue cheese and rosemary ball or this one with Havarti and parsley
Melon balls, perhaps on skewers
Cherry tomatoes with balls of mozzarella

Readers, more ideas for Alison?
