    Shar-on's Note:

    As a child I remember that we used puffed rice to make some squares, but have not found a recipe on Zaars, so I have changed one of the recipes to work with making them with puffed rice cereal. The time given as cooking, is actually the setting time. Hope you enjoy them.

      i made half of this recipe along with a separate half batch of puffed wheat squares by *pamela* using puffed rice for both. i actually didn't do this right because i added the peanut butter and heated it as well instead of after removing it from the heat. i did not use the chocolate chips and they still turned out very sweet, i'm thinking that next time i may just exclude the sugar. they did harden up nicely so that the puffed rice wouldn't get soggy, like it does with rice crispy treats.
