My mom used to make a chocolate rice crispy type treat when I was in high school. She made them A LOT. She always used a white plastic bowl to make them in. In fact, when my friends came over and saw the infamous "white bowl" on the counter they knew they were in for a treat. Hence, the name "White Bowl" was affectionately dubbed for these treats.

Chocolate Crispies AKA White Bowl
1 bag milk choc. chips
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. karo
Melt together until smooth, be sure to use a white bowl. ;) (I just do this in the microwave.)

2 t. vanilla
1 c. powdered sugar
4 c. rice crispies

And since it's almost Valentines day, I put mine in a lightly greased heart shaped pan to set up. You can put them in a regular 9X13 if you want. (Or eat them directly out of the bowl while they're still warm.) But who doesn't love a great big chocolate heart for a Valentine treat?

Never tried the chocolate version of rice krispie treats. I'll have to give that a go. Love the idea of putting in the heart pan!
