Popcorn Cake Recipe – A Family Favorite

I’m going to share a family favorite with everyone who’s interested. I don’t do that often. Call me stingy. This favorite recipe came from a co-worker back 25+ years ago. If you know me, then you’ve most likely had this yummy dessert before OR I’ve given you the recipe. Trust me, this is so yummy your kids will be screaming for more! So, here’s the recipe – the first recipe in a series of my favorite holiday (or anytime) recipes. Enjoy!

Popcorn Cake

1 lb. miniature marshmallows
2 sticks margarine
1 lb. M&M’s*
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
16 cups popped popcorn
1 small bag M&M’s with peanuts*

*Seasonal M&M’s can be used for the holidays.

Melt margarine on the stove, not in the microwave. Add marshmallows and let them melt. Turn off heat. Add and mix the rest of the ingredients. (I usually transfer the melted marshmallow and margarine to a large aluminum bowl for mixing in other ingredients.) Put in angel food cake pan that has been sprayed with Pam or buttered. Press mixture lightly into pan. Chill and remove from pan.
