We tried a new recipe over the weekend! I think you are going to love this one. I know the kids did! We made a Peanut Butter Popcorn Cake. A few months ago we made something similar for Patriotic Week of our DIY Summer Camp. It was a fun recipe and I thought I would try to put a fall spin on it.
This Peanut Butter Popcorn Cake is our project for Week 39 of the Pinterest Challenge. I was obviously inspired by our Patriotic Popcorn Cake but I also saw this pin for Peanut Butter Popcorn from Two Sisters Crafting. They used a different variation of ingredients but it looks like a fun recipe as well.
This is a really simple recipe and only requires a few ingredients! We used the following ingredients in our popcorn cake:
- 12 oz package marshmallows
- 6 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 5 oz bag of butter popcorn (10 cups)
- 1 cup Reese’s Pieces candy
First melt the butter and peanut butter together in the microwave for 45 seconds. Then add the marshmallows and toss to coat. Microwave for another minute or until the marshmallows are melted. Add the popcorn and mix well.
Let the mixture cool a little and then add the Reese’s Pieces candies. You don’t want to add them too soon because they will melt. Stir in the candy and press the mixture into a prepared bundt pan. Let it set for at least 15 minutes before turning it onto a serving plate. You can press some sprinkles into the top of the cake if you desire.
I love the pretty fall colors of Reese’s Pieces. This would be a great recipe to take to a Halloween Party or Thanksgiving Feast! It is a great alternative to pumpkin pie as a dessert for the kids.
