    mailbelle's Note:

    This is so different from your traditional "cake." It's like a snack mix made into a cake! Uses popped popcorn, M&Ms, caramels and peanuts. This recipe was titled Patriotic Popcorn Cake because it used red, white and blue M&Ms, but there are so many other possibilities! Use pastel M&Ms to make an Easter cake, red and green M&Ms for a Christmas cake, all pink or all blue M&Ms for a baby shower cake, assorted colors for a circus get the picture!

      Turned out beautiful and tasted amazing. Now I did do one thing different, but I doubt it changed much. Instead of the caramels I used a bag of caramel balls, same thing really just pellet sized for melting faster and no need to unwrap. I used a whole bag and I found them next to the morsels in the baking aisle.

      This was okay, but I think the problem was with the "candy" I used. I will use chocolates next time!

      I made this to bring to my sisters for Easter, and it is going to be very well received by young and old! This is one of those things where you have one piece and it leads to another one then another sliver, until you think you are going to turn into a sweet tooth junkie! I sampled a few times to make sure it was just right, and it's awesome! I used cashews instead of the peanuts, and drizzled milk chocolate over the top. Looks pretty with all the pastel candies and tastes great! I will be making this again to make into popcorn balls too. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Mailbelle!
