    Young Living in Texas's Note:

    This is great for parties or any time. Looks pretty on a cake plate. Young and old enjoy this chocolate and popcorn combination. I have made this many times and has always been a hit.

      This cake was simple and good! I didn't like all the fat the recipe had, so I just used a half cup butter and it was just right. I also added a tsp of vanilla flavoring. I skipped the nuts, because I'm just not that fond of nuts. Kids love this kind of thing, though!

      This recipe is great when you want something different. I made this for my son's boy scout group and they loved it.

      This cake was way too sticky the first time I made it. I tried making it a second time, and added about 2/3 of the marshmallows, 7 tbls of butter, and 1/8 c. oil. The second time it was less sticky, but the 5 year old was the only person in the family that liked it. One suggestion: Add the m&m's last, after you have stired everything else, to prevent them from melting from the hot marshmallow mixture. That part was much better the second time.
