No Bake Granola Bars

So I got this recipe from a website that got it from Rachel Ray...I think.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups quick cooking oats {not rolled oats!}
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
As many chocolate chips as you want

I boil the butter, honey and brown sugar together.  When it's bubbling I turn the heat off and mix in the vanilla.
While it's on the stove I mix together, in a different bowl, the oatmeal and rice krispies.

Once the butter, honey and brown sugar are done boiling i mix it into the oats/rice krispies mixture until it is all combined really really good.  

Then I poor it onto a cookie sheet or into a 9x11 cake pan and smmmmooooooooosssssshhhhh it really good (Pay attention to the thickness as that will be the thickness of your granola bars)

Then, i pour chocolate chips on top and smoosh them into the top of the bars, but be careful...once you start smooshing them in they start to melt some and eventually start sticking to the spatula you're using.

Then I stick them in the fridge for awhile.

Then, we want some we just cut off what we want.  i do pack them in lunches but after they warm up they do fall apart some.....or alot.  But they are DELICIOUS.  My daughter just packs a cold pack with it and she loooves them!
