Cast of Characters (sorry, I forgot to get a photo):
4 qts Popped popcorn (I use air popped)
1.5 C salted peanuts
10 oz peanut butter chips
and/or 16 oz Reeses Pieces
and/or 16 oz M&Ms
1/2 C butter or margarine or Smart Balance (I use Smart Balance)
1/2 C oil (I use light olive oil)
16 oz mini marshmallows
Pre-grease pan (either an angel food or bundt or two loaf pans). As you can see, I chose to do two loaf pans.
In a large bowl, mix popcorn, peanuts and peanut butter chips and if desired Reeses Pieces or M&Ms.
Combine butter/margarine, oil and marshmallows in pan. Heat until marshmallows are melted.
Pour melted marshmallow mixture over popcorn mixture. Stir/fold until popcorn is well coated.
Pour contents into pan(s). Let Cool. Cover cake after cool.
I usually only fix this at Christmastime. Not sure why, maybe because of all the fat and sugar… I have made it for special occasions (friend’s birthdays). I made it last night since kitchen remodel phase one is over and I like making treats for the guys working on our remodel. I also owe my good friend Dude (aka Dude) goodies for his belated birthday gift. See, Dude, I haven’t forgotten about you. 😉
Have you ever had a popcorn cake?
P.S. How do you like my new way of showing multiple photos for a single step? Cool, eh? I will be discussing this on another post.
