Popcorn Cake

In our never-ending quest to find creative and fun ideas for children, we have hit upon this real “kids only” treat. It has everything a child loves – popcorn, marshmallows, M&M’s, gumdrops…and not a drop of nutritional value whatsoever! Just don’t let me catch you sneaking a bite!

1 cup margarine
1 (8-ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
4 cups popped corn
1 cup M&M’s
1 cup gumdrops
1 cup peanuts

Melt margarine and stir in marshmallows until melted. Pour over popcorn and mix well. Stir in the gumdrops and peanuts. Press into a 9 x 13-inch pan and let set. Cut with a sharp knife (this is a parent’s job) or just tear apart with your fingers. This can be made in a tube pan if for some strange reason you want an “elegant” presentation.
