Caramel Puffed Rice Cake

The Boy, of "Get a Bigger Wagon" fame, loves this treat!

Measure six or seven cups of puffed rice (not Rice Krispies) into a large mixing bowl.

Mix the following ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil for two minutes.

½ cup corn syrup

½ cup butter

1-cup brown sugar

1-teaspoon vanilla

Pour the brown sugar sauce over the puffed rice and mix well. 

With damp hands, press the puffed rice mixture, evenly, into a buttered 9 by 13-inch cake pan. If you prefer a thicker cake, use a smaller pan. Cool the cake, then cover it with plastic wrap to keep it moist. 


This sauce is lovely over puffed wheat as well. For contrast, try Best Chocolatey Puffed Wheat Cake Ever.
