Orville Redenbacher Holiday Treats

We are fast approaching Christmas! I can't believe it will be here so fast. This past week we have spent the time decorating our house for Christmas. We have made lots of fun treats also. I want to share some fun healthy snack idea's along with a fun decorating idea.

Back in September we enjoyed Orville Redenbacher Power Crunch Snack Bars. With the holidays brings lots of tasty snacks that may contain Cranberries. We have tried another great recipe that we would love to share with you. 
Cranberry Almond Popcorn Bars
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Total: 1 hour 35 minutes
Makes: 40 servings (1 bar each)

Ingredients
PAM Original Cooking Spray
1 bag (99 g each) Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Butter Microwave Popcorn (you can substitute with one bag of 80 g, if you would like)
2/3 cup (155 ml) honey
½ cup (118 ml) almond butter
1 cup (120 g) dried cranberries

Directions
1. Lightly spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. Prepare popcorn according to package directions. Remove all unpopped kernels; place popcorn in large bowl.
2.  Place honey and almond butter in a 2.5 - quart microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes or until honey mixture is hot and bubbly. Pour over popcorn and toss gently to coat evenly. Add cranberries; gently combine. 
3. Press popcorn mixture into baking dish. Cool completely to room temperature. Cut into 40 bite-sized bars. 
For some reason when I made this it did not set the way it should but that didn't stop my family from gobbling it up and giving it their thumbs up approval. We will try it again this time being fast to getting into the pan and maybe making it almond butter and honey hotter. I did use an 80g bag of popcorn instead of  99g.

Tips: 
This easy-to-bake treat is made even more festive with the addition of red and green sugar or sprinkles. Leave them out for Santa, or package for a yummy hostess gift.

Serve: 
Popcorn is such a healthy snack and my children love it. Seasoned popcorn can be a light fun snack for holiday guest displayed in merry containers. It's a snack full of fibre and satisfying crunch. Why not try some seasoning - taco seasoning, parmesan cheese or for a sweet taste hot chocolate powder. 

Decorate:
Have fun decorating with our Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet Butter Microwave Popcorn! Make your house very festive with Fashion festive garlands by threading popcorn onto string. Add fresh cranberries at varying intervals for a pop of festive colour, you can also add red and/or green candies for a sweet surprise. The kids will have a lot of fun with this. We plan on doing this together Christmas Eve!
