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.
