Directions:
Put Cereal in a large bowl and set aside.

In large saucepan, bring to boil over medium heat: light Karo syrup, sugar and peanut butter.

Take off heat. Add 1 tsp. vanilla. Stir well.
Add 6-7 cups cereal. At this point, either press into 9x13 pan and add topping when cooled, or add 1 or 1Ĺ cups any kind of M & Mís and press into pan.

Topping, if you donít use M & Mís:

Melt chocolate (milk or semi), butterscotch chips in saucepan on low. Spread over top. (I sometimes need to make more to spread evenly, but not too much more! )
