Nothing makes me happier than to create recipes that use products that are made in Hawaii. Island Princess Hawaii Makani bars are made with mochi-pop which is caramel coated popcorn with Japanese rice crackers.  

The bars are a cross between rice crispy treats and Hawaii’s hurricane popcorn… hence the name Makani (Windy) bars.

Materials

  • 6 bags  Island Princess Hawaii mochi-pop
  • 1 cup   salted macadamia nuts chopped
  • 1/4 cup  furikake
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5-6 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  • Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.  
  • Toss together the mochi pop, macadamia nuts and half of the furikake in a large bowl; set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water and salt; bring to a boil over medium heat. 
  • Boil, without stirring, until the mixture reaches an amber color, about 8 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and slowly pour in the heavy cream and butter (the mixture will bubble up and sputter). Immediately add the marshmallows and stir until melted.
  • Pour the caramel over the popcorn mixture and quickly stir together with a rubber spatula until caramel is mixed into popcorn evenly.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared 9×13-inch pan. Spray a small piece of wax paper with nonstick cooking spray and use to press mixture firmly and evenly into pan.  
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes at 300 degrees.  Remove from oven and sprinkle lightly with remaining furikake.
  • Cool completely and then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
