Popcorn Cake

Ever feel like making popcorn balls at home?  Occasionally I do but the thought of having to fiddle with a candy thermometer to cook the syrup always puts me off.  Today I found this fabulously easy recipe for something called Popcorn Cake.  It's really just a giant popcorn ball but 100 times easier.  If you can melt butter and marshmallows (a la Rice Krispie Treats) you can make Popcorn Cake. 

I used our air popper; the 1/2 c measure yielded 14 c of popped corn.  The recipe called for 18 c so I made a second batch and my hubby and little boy ate the leftovers.  I was also able to use up a bag of marshmallows that had been languishing in the pantry since October, so everyone was happy.  I see more of this yumminess in our future.
