1 1/4 cup Rice Krispies cereal .
Combine all the ingredients for the base and press into an 8 inch
square pan. Bake in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.
While base is baking make the toffee layer.
In a heavy saucepan combine the condensed milk with the 1/2 cup of
butter and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and
simmer for 5 minutes. Keep stirring as this mixture burns easily.
Pour toffee over the base.
Melt chocolate chips and stir in the 1 1/4 cups of rice Krispies.
Stir to coat well. Use two forks to spread evenly over the toffee
layer. Chill and cut into squares.
