Christmas Popcorn Cake

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

22 cups popped corn, salted or unsalted
1 pound gumdrops (If you use large ones, snip them first; do not use black or spice flavors)
1/2 pound whole salted peanuts
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup salad oil
1 pound marshmallows

Instructions

Grease an angel food tube pan well with butter. Mix popped corn with candy and nuts in large bowl. Melt butter, oil and marshmallows in double boiler. When completely melted, pour over popcorn and mix well. (I butter my hands first well) Press mixture into greased tube pan and press down good. Cover with foil to keep moist. When ready to use, turn out of pan. Measurements for peanuts, gumdrops and marshmallows do not have to be exact.
