I made popcorn cake for my son and sent it to him when he was away at college. It's very versatile and you can change it around to suit your tastes. Instead of plain M&Ms, use the new flavored ones or peanut ones, add chocolate chips, or substitute almonds for the peanuts. You get the idea — make this your cake recipe! Be sure though, to use plain un-buttered, unsalted popcorn.
1/2 cup Margarine
1/2 cup Oil
1 pound Marshmallows
1 gallon Popped corn (popcorn)
1 pound Salted peanuts
1 pound M&M chocolate candies

Mix the margarine, oil and marshmallows, cook 1 minute.
Lightly mix the popcorn, peanuts and candies together. Pour
marshmallow mix over popcorn mixture and lightly mix. Pour into buttered
Bundt pan and let stand for 1 hour. Do not cover popcorn cake.
Cake in now ready to serve, cake is solid, so use a sawing motion to
"cut popcorn cake."
Or just break it in pieces, it's your cake, do it how ever you want.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
