Popcorn + Cake = ? solve for ?

And while we’re on the subject, I can’t decide if this is so bad that it comes all the way around to being good again or if it is in fact just disgusting. Were I actually to make this, I would of course have to substitute marshmallows for that jarred marshmallow kreme to avoid the gelatin, but that assumes that I lost my frigging marbles and set out to make this:

From Cookies and Cups

This, my friends, is what you call a “popcorn cake”.
Prepare a large tube or bundt pan by spraying evenly with cooking spray.
Pop 2 bags of buttered microwave popcorn as directed on the package and dump into a large bowl.
{I used “Butter Lovers” because I am out of my mind}
Pick out the kernels that didn’t pop…broken teeth aren’t so cute.
Now mix in 2 cups of M&M’s and 1 1/2 cups broken pretzel sticks..not crushed, just broken into smaller pieces…
Melt 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter over low in a large saucepan.
When melted add in a 16 oz bag of mini marshmallows (8 cups)
Stir until melted and smooth.
Remove from heat and pour over your popcorn mix.
Stir until all the ingredients are combined and then press into the prepared pan.
Cover with foil and let your cake set for at least an hour to cool.
When you are ready to serve the cake loosen sides of your cake from the pan by running a butter knife around the edges.
Flip your pan over onto your serving platter.

Your cake should come out pretty easily.
{You want it to cool completely so it will cut nicely}
Store covered tightly for up to 1 day.
(Best if eaten same day)
