This is a great treat. We call it "monkey food". I made a half batch. This time instead of a caked which would have to be pulled apart or cut, I made these into balls. The half batch made 10 good sized balls. Before forming the balls I sprayed my hands with butter flavored cooking spray. I place each ball on it's own square of waxed paper and after it's cooled I wrap it up and tape it shut. It's easy to transport and I use the wax paper to hold on so my hands don't get sticky. I used more m&m's than the recipe called for. Instead of popping corn, I used a bag of microwave popcorn, which worked well. One regular sized bag would make a half batch, two would make a whole batch. The 94% fat free healthy pop or the Crispy and White kind work great because they are not greasy. If you wanted to dress this up for a bake sale or school treat you could drizzle the cake or balls with melted chocolate or cover in sprinkles for kids. Either would be fabulous!



Good stuff! Used the red, green and gold m&m's and ommitted the nuts. Very "pretty" and I found that it works best using an angel food pan oppossed to a bundt pan unless the bundt pan is buttered WELL. I also lightly salted the popcorn and maybe next time I will try using cookie decorations/sprinkles instead of the chocolate candy.



Neat idea!!!!!! My kids loved it...and so did the adults. Grandma ate the most!!!!!!!!!
