Popcorn Bars

We love popcorn in our home. In my pantry, you will always find an assortment of granola bars, granola, protein bars and powder and a whole selection of salty snacks. However, it is unusual for a night to go by when someone isn’t snacking on popcorn. It just seems to be the perfect snack for anytime. Everyone in our home has their own favorite take on these popcorn bars, asking for anything and everything from hot sauce to cinnamon sugar to suit their own taste.

My daughter loves to mix salty and sweet with her popcorn. Her favorite combination is cashews, raisins, pretzels, marshmallows and chocolate chips. Almost every night, she can be found having her popcorn mix before heading upstairs for the night.

These bars are my take on a portable version of her favorite snack.
