Caramel and Chocolate Kettle Corn Crispie Bars
This recipe from Judy Reynolds of Bloomington, Indiana, was the $10,000 winner in our first Best of the Midwest cook-off. Start with a Hoosier staple--popcorn--and stir together these sweet-salty snack bars. Homemade caramel sauce helps makes them a standout.
Place chocolate pieces in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cook on 50 percent (medium) power for 2 to 3 minutes or until chocolate is just melted, stirring twice.
To make cutting easier, wipe blade of knife with wet paper towels frequently.
