Whenever I plan a movie night, I know we are going to have a big bowl of popcorn. And while I love a fresh popped popcorn sometimes, you have to switch it up a bit. It needs to be kicked up a notch. I can’t ever just make something simple! I love throwing some M&M’s® into my popcorn. It’s just such a great combination.

When thinking of how I could take our popcorn to the next level, I took my favorite popcorn combination and turn it into a fun treat. And that’s how I arrived at Popcorn Cake! It looks fancy. It’s easy to make. And it’s very inexpensive.

If you know how to make Crispy Treats, then you can make this popcorn cake! The steps are very similar: melt butter and marshmallows, add fresh popped popcorn, stir, and place into a greased bundt pan.

Ta-da! Popcorn cake!
