Gadget Get Together AND Popcorn cake recipe
I just wanted to remind you that Gadget Get Together is tomorrow night (Wed. Nov. 8th) starting at 5:15 p.m and that we can't wait to see you here! I have had one person give us a ruler to figure out for them. Start looking through your boxes ladies and find us those rulers you just had to have but can't remember why.
Also last month June brought in a wonderful treat for everyone and forgot to bring the recipe along with it. I have it for you now! Yay!
1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil4 quarts(16 cups) plain, unbuttered popped popcorn
2 cups m&m candies
1 cup lightly salted cocktail peanuts
1/2 cup(1 stick) unsalted butter
1 pound marshmallows
Grease a cake pan or cookie sheet with 2 teaspoons of oil. Set aside
In a large bowl mix popped popcorn with the m&m's and peanuts. Set aside
In a medium saucepan melt butter then add remaining oil and marshmallows. Over low heat stirring occasionally until all lumps are gone. With oven mitts or pot holders remove sauce pan from heat and pour over popcorn mixture. Stir to combine.
Spoon mixture into prepared cake pan. Using hands or the back of a spoon, press firmly so that the mixture is compacted.
Let sit for 3-4 hours until firm and set.
We hope to see everyone tomorrow night.
