Movie In Your Mouth Popcorn Cake

I love this recipe.  Just ask my "bat wings" how much I love it.  I feel so ashamed!

I was hungry for popcorn with marshmallows in it.  I am not generally a mixer or salty and sweet but, when I mentioned to my husband I was thinking of this he was on top of the world!  We are lovers of the movies and this cake, is like a bite of a movie theatre.  All of the usual movie theatre suspects, in one bite?!  Yes!  You are VERY welcome!

I think this is so festive and what a fun alternative to a real cake!  How fun would this be on a sweet table for any party!?  Decorated and ingredients matching a theme would be really cool too!  Make it your own.  No bake, no muss, no fuss. 

This is so easy and feel free to change out my candy choices for ones you might like better.  Just make sure you can buy them at the MOVIES!!

3.5 ounce bag of microwave BUTTERED popcorn, popped
10.5 ounce bag of marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1 cup Twizzlers cut into bite size pieces
1 1/4 cup plain M&MS (divided)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

In a large bowl place marshmallows and butter.  Microwave 1 minute at a time until mixture is melted and creamy.  Stir in popcorn and mix.  It might take a couple of minutes to get it combined evenly!  Stir in Twizzlers and 1 cup of  M&Ms and place into a Bundt pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Spread out evenly without pressing TO hard.  You want it to be in there solid but no need to squish it to death.  Chill for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.  Turn out  on to a plate when chilled.  (might need to run a knife around the edges and insides)

Melt white chocolate chips and place into a piping bag or just use a spoon, and drizzle the top heavily with the white chocolate.  Immediately take your extra 1/4 cup M&Ms and sprinkle on top

Let sit at room temp for 15 minutes.  Serve!

NOTE!  REMOVE all OLD MAIDS from your popcorn.  This is SO important, you don't need anyone breakin' their grill on your popcorn cake!  I forgot one, and I am the one who found it.  No broken teeth but, not a pleasant experience!

Enjoy your mouthful of "the movies"!!
