Popcorn Cake

PopcornBarThe first year I was away from home on my birthday, my Mom sent me a popcorn cake.  It was a taste of home, fall and love all wrapped up in one fragrantly satisfying bundle.

It seems only appropriate to share this recipe since October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month.

This is a fun and easy cake to make that little ones especially enjoy. A warning: you will have sticky fingers both in the making and the eating process, but so worth it!

Popcorn Cake

24 cups of popped popcorn*

1 cup of spiced gum drops

1 1/2 cups of peanuts

1 large bag of mini marshmallows

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup butter

Mix oil, butter and marshmallows in a large bowl. Microwave at 20-30 second increments, stirring between each set until marshmallows and melted and oil and butter are mixed in nicely. (It will still look a little oily). Mix in popped popcorn, peanuts and gum drops. Press into greased bundt or angel food cake pan. Leave standing at room temperature for an hour or so until cake is set then slice and serve. You could also press into balls and wrap individually.

* For a fun variation, use colored popcorn kernels.
