Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray a 12-muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. 

Spoon 1 teaspoon of melted butter into each muffin cup. Sprinkle ⅛ teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of mozzarella cheese into each muffin cup. 

In a small bowl, mix spinach, cream cheese, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, ¼ cup of mozzarella cheese, the remaining butter, and the soy sauce until well blended. Shape into 12 (1 inch) balls. 

Remove the dough from the can and cut it into 12 equal slices. Press each to form a 3-inch round and place one spinach ball in the center. Do this for all 12 slices. Wrap the dough around the spinach ball and pinch the edges to seal completely. Place seam side down in muffin cups. 

Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cooling for roughly 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a serving platter. 

To garnish, sparkle with remaining butter, garlic powder, and cheese.
