The following recipe tops a shortbread-type base with the sweet goodness of strawberry preserves, popcorn for an added whole grain bonus and drizzled chocolate for an elegant touch.


4 cups of popped popcorn
2 cups of flour
1/2 cups of confectioners’ sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, cut into pieces
1 egg white
1 10-ounce jar of strawberry preserves
1 cup of chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan; set aside. Process the flour and confectioners’ sugar in food processor for several seconds. Add butter and process until the dough comes together. Press the mixture evenly into a prepared pan. Lightly brush the egg white on top of the mixture. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden. Immediately spread preserves evenly over the warm crust. Press the popcorn into the preserves; let cool. Melt chocolate chips in a small zip lock freezer bag by heating it in a microwave for 30 seconds, or until melted. Snip the corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate over cooled the popcorn. Cool and cut into bars.

Yield: 24 bars
