Easter Popcorn Cake — Sweet and Savory Delicious

popcorn cake

sweet and savory, so delish!

I’ve always been a fan of popcorn cake.  It.is.amazing.  My brother always makes it every Christmas, so I made an excuse to make it at Easter time with the pastel M&Ms.  So.dang.good.  I’m “supposed” to be on the Paleo diet so I fit in my bridesmaid dress next week for my friend’s wedding, well I just started it a couple days late (therefore you might be seeing healthy recipes from me for a while).  Here you have it:

What you need:

  • 3 bags of popcorn, popped and placed in a bowl (remove kernels)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 21 oz. mini marshmallows
  • 4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups M&Ms
  • 1 cup peanuts (optional)
What you do:
  • Place popped popcorn into a very large bowl.
  • Make a syrup from the butter, marshmallows and vanilla by heating them together and stirring in a large saucepan.

  • Carefully cut slices using bread knife. (Servings: 12) *If not using immediately, cool thoroughly and wrap in plastic to store.
Wahlaaaaa…. Here you have it!
