Harvest Spice Popcorn Cake Recipe

Hello and welcome!  Today’s recipe is tailored to my favorite time of year — fall.  You can’t beat autumn colors, fall comfort foods, and cozy sweaters.

Speaking of comfort foods, this recipe is especially comforting.  It’s a recipe my Mom makes often when we go back home to visit.  The best recipes, in my opinion, bring back warm memories and create traditions.  This one especially gives me the warm and fuzzies.  I hope you enjoy!

Grocery List

Recipe Instructions & Tips

In a medium to large sized bowl, add the 6 tbsp butter and miniature marshmallows.


Melt in the microwave in small increments, stirring often.  The marshmallows should be smooth and the butter should be completely mixed in.

Next, add the popcorn and mix well.  I used 2 bags of microwave popcorn, which is approximately 10 cups.


I bought a 10 oz bag of spice drops and picked out the autumn colors.  Call me crazy.  I’ve also been known to pick out the right color of sprinkles for birthday cakes.  But this way you can get the fall colors and avoid the black licorice flavored ones.  Two birds with one stone. 🙂


You can find harvest colored M&Ms, so no need to pick out special colors for those!

Fold in the spice drops and M&Ms.


Grease a bundt pan.  Also, grease your hands and add the popcorn to the pan, pressing down firmly.


Turn the bundt pan over on to a plate or serving tray.  I used my cake stand (which is also a punch bowl). Which I LOVE and use often.

Decorate the edges with autumn sprinkles.  Enjoy!

  1. Looks really good. My wife is making a list of “fall treats” now that the weather is cooling down here. I have never heard of this before. My problem would be eating all the ingredients before they are even mixed together!

      I know, right? You definitely need to test them before mixing it all together. 🙂 Thanks for stopping!
