Simple Ooey Goey Popcorn Cake

It’s Saturday and for you hopefully, it is down time for fun things like cooking! I will be attending a potluck later today and I thought to bring something uber decadent. While researching, I came across this recipe on cookies and cups. Be sure to check out the yummy recipes on there.

I had finished making the cake before I remembered that it was blog material. The marshmallow does not have a photo so please accept my apologies. I also did not use a bundt pan like the original recipe suggested, I just used a regular baking pan.

Enough talking, let’s get to it!

You’ll need:

  • Popping corn
  • M&M’s
  • Coconut oil
  • Marshmallows
  • Pretzels
  • Butter


  • Salted peanuts
  • Skor bites

I didn’t use any precise measurements so just eyeball it as you go.

Place enough coconut oil to cover the bottom of your pan and let it heat.

Add raw corn and place the lid on with enough space for steam to escape. It’ll start popping in about a minute.

Remove from heat and let it cool for about thirty seconds. Leave the lid on so they don’t fly everywhere, those things have wings!

Once the popping sound stops, the coast is clear.

Remove from pan and pick up the unpopped kernel.

Pour into a bowl.

Break pretzel sticks and add to the bowl.

Add M&M’s.

Get the greased cake pan and empty the content of the bowl into it.

Let it cool and set properly.

Flip onto a plate or platter.
