For those who love popcorn, marshmallows and M&M's, will definitely enjoy this cake. My favorite M&M's to use in this cake, are the peanut M&M's. (Also, when making this recipe, I did use a large Teflon coated pan/kettle.)

Serves:

1 (8x8-inch) cake, or 6 servings. But if using 4 cups of marshmallows, this will serve 8.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 bag
(3.3 oz.) microwavable kettle corn
1/4 cup
butter, plus more for greasing the pan
3 cups
miniature marshmallows (*see note)
1 cup
hershey's chocolate m&m's, or peanut m&m's

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make microwavable popcorn according to instructions on the bag. Discard any un-popped popcorn seeds from the bag.
2
Butter the inside of one 8x8-inch pan with a bit of butter. Then line inside of pan with plastic wrap.
3
In a large kettle or Dutch oven, add the 1/4 cup of butter. (I used a large Teflon coated kettle/pan, when making this recipe.) Melt the butter over low heat, then add the marshmallows; stirring until marshmallows have melted completely.
4
Remove kettle from stove, and quickly stir the melted marshmallows and popcorn together.
5
Add the M&M's, and quickly stir them in as well.
6
Pour the popcorn mixture into the prepared pan.
7
With buttered hands, press popcorn mixture down into the pan.
8
Cover pan with plastic wrap, and set pan aside to cool for a few hours before cutting into squares. (I let mine set for at least 4 hours.)

*Note: I have also made this with 4 cups of miniature marshmallows. With the extra marshmallows added, this will make 8 servings.
