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. 

Tip:

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