  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (8 ounce) container roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag M&M's plain chocolate candy (I use orange and black candy corn for Halloween and no nuts.)


  1. Butter a bundt pan.
  2. Melt butter, oil and marshmallows in a large saucepan.
  3. Pour popcorn into a large bowl.

  6. Pour melted marshmallow mixture over corn, nuts and candies.
  7. Mix well, working quickly.
  8. Press mixture firmly into pan.
  9. Turn cake out immediately onto a large plate.
