Cook Time 15 minutes

Servings 24


  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 12 cups Popcorn (1/2 cup kernels)
  • 10 oz Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 cup M&M's
  • 1 cup Dry Roasted Peanuts


  • Pop the popcorn using your favorite air popper. If you don't have one yet, I highly recommend [this air popper on Amazon](insert Amazon affiliate link), which ensures perfectly popped kernels every time.
  • n a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted and smooth.
  • In a large mixing bowl, pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and coat thoroughly. Allow to cool for a little bit before adding peanuts and M&M's so they do not melt.
  • Using a spatula or your hands (coated with cooking spray to prevent sticking), gently mix until all the popcorn, M&Ms, and peanuts are evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  • Transfer the mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Press down firmly using a piece of wax paper or greased hands to flatten and compact the mixture evenly.
  • Allow the popcorn cake to cool and set for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares or slices.
