How to Make BONNIE'S NUTTY POPCORN CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Grease a large tube or angel food pan, or a bundt cake pan with 2 teaspoons of the oil. (I prefer the angel food pan) Set aside.
    Pop the corn, don't use microwave corn. Exclude in unpopped kernels.
    In a large bowl, mix the popped corn with the gummi bears or gum drops, and the nuts and set aside.
  • 2In a large buttered bowl, mix the popcorn, gum drops or gummi bears, brazil nuts, pecans and walnuts.
  • 3In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, corn syrup, and the marshmallows over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. When melted, pour marshmallow mixture over the popcorn mixture. Stir to combine.
  • 4Spoon mixture into the prepared cake pan. Using your hands or the back of a spoon, press firmly so that the mixture is compacted.
  • 5Cover with aluminum foil to keep moist. Let sit for about 3 to 4 hours, or until firm and set. Enjoy!
  • 6To serve, invert the cake pan onto a large plate or platter. Shake gently to release the cake. Serve at room temperature.

    YIELD: 1 cake, serving 12 to 16
