These moorish bars are made with popcorn and held together with salted caramel. These indulgent snacks are refined sugar, gluten and lactose free. Serve as a snack, at parties, take to the movies or as a dessert with ice cream.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 1/4 hours (including time to set)
Serves: 12-24 (depending on size of the baking dish)

Ingredients
4 cups cooked popcorn, plain, unsalted
1/3 cup honey
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/3 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1/4 cup peanut butter (or tahini if nut free)
1 tbsp milk (lactose free if required)
1 tsp salt (exclude for non salted version)

Method
  • Line a rectangular baking dish with baking paper and spread cooked popcorn evenly over the base. The size of the dish will determine how thick the bars are. For thick bars use a small dish and for thin bars use a large dish.
  • Put the honey, coconut oil, coconut sugar and salt into a saucepan on medium heat and stir until it starts to bubble slightly. Remove from the heat.
  • [Image9 Initially the honey, coconut oil, salt and sugar will be separate but will melt, combine and bubble quickly]
  • Add the peanut butter, milk and stir until combined and smooth.
  • [Image11 The peanut butter will initially thicken the mixture and the milk will help to make it smooth]
  • Pour the caramel over the popcorn and use a spoon to mix and combine until the popcorn is evenly coated with the caramel.

  • Use the back of a spoon to press down hard to flatten the caramel popcorn. The popcorn will stick together, look like a slice and will be easy to cut when set. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

  • Cut into bars of desired size and serve. Store in a airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • Tips
  • Make your own popcorn or buy plain popcorn from the supermarket. I made mine using coconut oil.
  • For an fun dessert I make an icecream sandwich by placing ice cream between two bars and drizzle some [Link http://recipeyum.com.au/peanut-and-chocolate-chip-cookies-with-hot-chocolate-fudge-dipping-sauce/ hot chocolate fudge sauce] on the top.
