Lil Goos Crunch Bars
Yields 8-12 bars
4 - 6 oz pouches of Lil Goos
2 oz butter (1/4 cup)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 ½ cups crispy rice cereal
Put Lil Goos in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on low power for 1 ½ minutes, or until smooth. Remove from microwave and stir.
In a pan on the stove, melt butter over low heat. Add salt and vanilla and stir. Add Lil Goos mixture and stir all to incorporate, until fully melted and smooth. Note: there will be some excess oil from the butter, but that is normal. It will fully incorporate when mixed with the cereal.
Place crispy rice cereal into a large mixing bowl and then pour the Lil Goos mixture over the cereal.
Fold by hand until cereal is fully coated and mixture sticks together. Press mixture into greased 8x8 pan and allow to sit 1-2 hours before cutting and serving.
