    I saw another recipe posted for a Popcorn Candy Cake. It's a little bit different than this one (and actually looks fabulous). I think I cut this recipe out of one of the Taste of Home Magazine inserts. It's definitely for someone with a sweet tooth. Kids would love this.... The time noted is the time for the cake to set.

      I love seeing this version of the popcorn cake, having had it in my childhood 40 years ago. I prefer the use of (spice) gumdrops to M&M's. My mom made it during the Christmas holiday, adding to the magic of the season. It remains a favorite of our family today.

      I would definately recommend this is delicious...I did not make it, but when I do, I would try cutting the vegetable oil down to 1/2 cup. I think M&M's would be good also, instead of the gumdrops. Someone at work thought they might try candy corn and peanuts for Thanksgiving.
