More granola bars

I was just perusing the internet a little while ago and came across these. Within 10 minutes they were cooling on my counter. No-Bake Chocolate Chip Granola Bars yield: 10 bars adapted from a pinterest recipe that was adapted from Rachael Ray Ingredients: 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup honey 1/3 cup packed brown sugar (I used 1/4 cup) 2 cups quick cooking oats (I used old fashioned) 1 cup crispy rice cereal 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (I forgot the vanilla) 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (I used regular size choc chips and mixed them in before pressing in the pan) Directions: In a large bowl, stir oats and rice cereal together. Set aside. In a small pot, melt butter, honey and brown sugar together over medium high heat until it comes to a bubble. Reduce the heat and cook 2 minutes. Pour in vanilla and stir. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well to moisten all ingredients. Pour into lightly greased small jelly roll pan {about 12x8x1} and press out to be about 3/4 inch in thickness. {If your pan isn’t small enough, pack the mixture into one side. You really want to press them down so they stick together.} Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and press down lightly. Cool on a countertop to room temperature for two hours or until the chocolate chips are set before cutting into bars. Wrap in parchment or plastic wrap and store at room temperature. (I put them in an 8x8 pan)
