So, the bars are Bob’s brainchild. He recently asked why I hadn’t incorporated Crunch ‘n Munch into a baked good. I think popcorn + pizza is fun football food, so this is my spin on it.

I started with my favorite cookie base (the classic Nestle recipe) and added in chopped Crunch ‘n Munch then topped it with more popcorn. You end up with a sweet and chewy bar that’s buttery and oh so good. The perfect complement to a pizza.
