1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup

In the mixing bowl, add 1 cup sugar and 1 cup light corn syrup.
Stir together. This will be thick.
Microwave for about 2 minutes.
You will want the mixture to come to an all most boil. When you start to see bubbles around the edges, you are done.
**The mixture will be very hot, so use caution.
Remove bowl from microwave.

Add 5 cups Krispy Rice Cereal.
Keep mixing until all the cereal is coated.

Pour into a 13x9 baking dish.
I do not butter the dish to prep the pan because these treats are not around long enough in my house for them to stick to the pan. If you choose, use non-stick spray or butter to prep the baking dish.

Step 5:

Do not over heat the chocolate or it will dry out and get hard.
