Chewy, crunchy, salty, and sweet in every mouthful.

 

This popcorn cake recipe also makes perfect party popcorn balls. No slicing needed and everyone gets his or her own specially wrapped treat.

 

Most of the time we slice our popcorn cake. It’s fun and festive for any party or celebration.

 

If you were one of my mom’s students in the 25 years she taught elementary school, you have probably had a slice of this famous cake. In fact, some of her past students who are now parents have contacted me for this recipe.

Chewy gumdrops, salty peanuts, and melted marshmallows all mixed up with popcorn.

 

Then pressed into a cake pan.

This is a fun treat for kids and adults when you are in the mood for something a little different.

You could even press some in muffin tins…
Then set the little mounds on a plate for people to grab and snack on.  Great finger food for parties.

 Press some in mini loaf pans for holiday gifts.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg gumdrops not spice flavor I had trouble finding these so I bought large ones and cut them.
  • 57 large marshmallows
  • 1 can of salted peanuts
  • 1 cube butter or a non-dairy substitute like Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks.
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 24 cups popped popcorn about 1 1/2 cups kernels

Instructions

  • Grease angel food cake pan.
  • Pop kernels, making sure to take out ones that did not pop.
  • I use a large kettle to mix the ingredients.
  • Put gumdrops, peanuts, and popcorn in a huge mixing bowl or use a large kettle as I do.
  • Melt butter and marshmallows with oil in a saucepan on medium to low heat. Stir often and be careful not to burn the mixture.
  • Pour over popcorn mixture and mix well, making sure to get all the goodies on the bottom.
  • Press firmly in prepared cake pan.
  • Let sit for an hour or so. You want to make sure it takes the form. I let mine sit for at least 2 hours.
  • Go around the edge of the cake with a knife to free up edges. Turn over onto a large plate and slice.
  • Cut into slices with a bread knife or a serrated knife. You may need to clean a knife a couple of times during slicing, as it can get sticky.

  1. Hello Mary
    This recipe looks AWESOME!!!! I do have a question before I attempt making it (and cannot wait to do it)
    What does a “cube of butter” equate to? Does it mean a 1/4 – pound of butter OR a cup or more?

    Thank you
    Very much appreciated.
