Rice Crispy Squares

This is from 150 Delicious Squares from Company`s Coming. It says: A can`t-miss hit with kids, and they can help you make them too. I find that they are a can`t-miss hit with teenagers too. Blink and your squares are GONE!

six cups rice crispies
half cup brown sugar, packed
third cup corn syrup
quarter cup butter
one and half tbsp cocoa, sift if lumpy (I didn`t have cocoa so used carob)

Measure rice crispies in a large bowl.
Combine remaining 4 ingredients in a small pot. Bring to boil over medium heat. Heat and stir for one and half mins. Remove from heat. Pour over cereal and stir `til evenly coated. Press firmly into greased 8x8 inch (20x20 cm) pan.Let stand in pan `til cool. Cut into 25 squares.

Note: Have damp hands when pressing into pan otherwise the rice crispies will stick to you instead of each other. When cutting best to use a greased knife, that way the sweet won`t stick to the knife. I find it easiest and most convenient to wash the knife in warm water after each cut, give it a corsory dry and wipe it over the butter. The knife will still be warm from the warm water and so will only pick up a little of the butter, just enough to grease it.
