Popcorn Cake

Sugar coma anyone?

  • 2 bags of buttery microwave popcorn - popped, remove unpopped kernels
  • 2 cups M&M's
  • 1 1/2 cups pretzel sticks - broken into pieces, not crushed
  • 16 oz (8 cups) mini marshmallows
  • 1 stick butter

  • Prepare a tube pan or bundt pan by spraying with cooking spray.
  • Pop microwave popcorn according to package directions. Pour popped corn into large mixing bowl. (Important...Carefully remove all unpopped kernels.)
  • Into popcorn, mix in the M&M's and broken pretzel sticks.
  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
  • When butter is completely melted, add in mini marshmallows and stir until completely melted and smooth.
  • Remove butter and marshmallow mixture from heat and pour over the popcorn, M&M, pretzel mix, stirring until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Press combined mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Cover the pan with foil and let your cake set for at least one hour to cool.
  • When you are ready to serve the cake, loosen the sides of your cake from the pan by running a butter knife around the edges.
  • Lay a plate upside down over the top of the bundt pan and flip the pan and plate over, allowing the cake to slip out of the pan onto the plate.
  • Cake should be completely cool for ease of cutting.
  • Cover cake tightly and store for up to 1 day.
