Chocolate rice crispy treats!
- Serves: 2 persons
- ½cup unsalted butter
- 1cup packed brown sugar
- 2tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2cups chocolate flavored crispy rice cereal

Step 1Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 inch, square baking pan with heavy-duty foil, folding the foil over the edges of the pan.
Step 2Put butter in pan and melt in oven. Add brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla; stir to mix.
Step 3Add cereal and stir with a spoon, then mix with fingers until thoroughly coated. Place waxed paper on top and press down gently but firmly.
Step 4Bake for 25 minutes until entire surface is bubbly. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let stand for chips to soften.
Step 5Spread chips, then sprinkle with almonds, pressing gently into chocolate. Let cool until just warm, then refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight before cutting.
Step 6Using foil as a lifter, remove from pan and, without inverting (almond would peel off), peel off foil. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.
