  • Put butter in pan and melt in oven. Add brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla; stir to mix.

  • Add cereal and stir with a spoon, then mix with fingers until thoroughly coated. Place waxed paper on top and press down gently but firmly.

  • Bake for 25 minutes until entire surface is bubbly. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let stand for chips to soften.

  • Spread chips, then sprinkle with almonds, pressing gently into chocolate. Let cool until just warm, then refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight before cutting.

  • Using foil as a lifter, remove from pan and, without inverting (almond would peel off), peel off foil. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.

I found the flavor of brown sugar a little to strong but my boyfriend enjoyed them. I may try this again. Read More

2.24.19 First I have to say that this did not even come close to what I thought I was making which was chocolate rice crispy treats which I could cut into bars. I bought a box of Kellogg's Cocoa Krispies tasted it and found this cereal super sweet. The only deviation I made from the recipe instructions was reducing the amount of the brown sugar. When this came out of the oven bubbling I sprinkled the chocolate chips on the top waited a few minutes for them to soften but they didn t soften enough to spread them. The recipe doesn t tell you what kind of almonds to use (whole slivers sliced?) so I used sliced but was unable to even press them down into the chocolate because the chips hadn t softened enough. I put this in the fridge overnight and what I ended up with is something that tastes like candy. It falls apart when you try to cut it almonds and chips falling off and looks like you ve broken apart a large piece of candy bark just not easy at all to eat. Not sure what went wrong here but I won t be making this again. I m giving this 2 stars because it didn t taste bad but this was a huge disappointment! Read More
