Recipe Notes

Storage tip : store in the refrigerator to prevent melting.

*Substitution tip : Often I substitute corn syrup in a recipe for maple syrup with positive results. Don't try that here! The maple syrup is not thick enough to hold the squares together, and the Rice Krispies absorb it causing them to go soggy. This is one recipe where the corn syrup is really a must to get the desired outcome.
