Popcorn cakes were always something we had growing up as kids. My mom’s good friend Karen use to make them for us every year and we were always so excited when it arrived. They are so easy to make and something different to give or bring for holiday parties.

Here is what you will need.

1 gallon of popcorn or 2 1/2 bags of microwave popcorn, 2 cups of plain M&M’s, 1 cup dry roasted peanuts, 1 pound of marshmallows, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil and 1/3 cup of margarine.

Pop the popcorn and put in a bowl along with the peanuts and M&M’s

In a saucepan put the marshmallows, margarine and oil melt until it is liquid.

Pour mixture over the popcorn in the mixing bowl and stir until completely coated.

Then pour and press into a greased angel food cake pan and let sit for 15-20 minutes until set.

Then turn out onto a plate and slice and enjoy!
