 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          Rice Krispies®
      1/4  cup           butter
    6      ounces        semisweet chocolate chips
      1/4  cup           white corn syrup
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    1 1/2  cups          sifted powdered sugar
 
 Take some extra butter and grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Put the cereal
 into a plastic bag and mash it slightly so that the pieces are slightly
 broken but not made into a powder.
 
 Combine the butter, chocolate chips, and corn syrup in a pan. Place it over
 low heat and stir continuously until the butter and chocolate are melted and
 the mixture is blended. Do not overheat while you are doing this. Remove
 from the heat and add the vanilla. Stir in the powdered sugar (a whisk will
 help you make it smooth).
 
 Add the crushed cereal and stir in well until everything is mixed together
 then, working quickly, scoop the mixture into the buttered pan and flatten
 it and smooth the surface. Chill until firm. Cut into squares or rectangles
 and wrap if you like.
 
 YIELD: 9x13-inch pan to be cut as you choose
