I am not a dessert person. Wait. I am not a bake-a-dessert person. I'm more of a enjoyer-of-desserts girl. These buttered popcorn bars, however, are my go-to dessert now. I always have the ingredients in the house, and, in less than an hour, I can have finished dessert. Voila!
I made these bars for a family dinner and we decided to class it up. Ice cream, shaved chocolate, and sea salt take this dessert over the top! Feel free to experiment on your own.
You can make your popcorn any way you want: microwave or stovetop. The more buttery, the better. I use 1/2c popcorn kernels and 1/4c vegetable oil in a Whirly Pop (Whirly Pop makes air-popped popcorn in 3 minutes flat!).
