 Sugar and Charm

Ingredients

1 box Nature Valley™ Crunchy Granola Bars Oats and Honey (6 2-bar pouches)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
tablespoons melted butter
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 lemon
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups freshly chopped strawberries

Steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Put the Nature Valley™ granola bars in a food processor and process until you achieve a fine crumb. Reserve half of the crumbs (about 3/4 cup) for topping.
  • In a large bowl, combine remaining crumbs with the brown sugar, flour and melted butter. Spread crumb mixture into an 8×8-inch baking dish that has been covered with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Let cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine eggs whites and sugar and mix on high. Add the heavy cream and continue mixing for another 5 minutes.
  • In another bowl, mix squeezed lemon juice and softened cream cheese. Mix on low speed until incorporated. Add heavy cream mixture.
  • Fold the fresh strawberries into the cream mixture.

In a buttered glass dish, press the butter-crumb crust mixture on the bottom. Top with strawberry mix and then add the reserved granola crumbs to the top.

Cover and freeze for three hours or more and enjoy!
