  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   4      cups          Rice Krispies cereal
     1/2  cup           Peanut Butter
     3/4  cup           Light Corn Syrup
     1/2  cup           Butter or Margarine
   1      dash          Salt
   1      teaspoon      Vanilla
  12      ounces        Chocolate Chips -- melted

In a large saucepan, combine butter, corn syrup and peanut butter, and cook
over medium heat until butter is melted and ingredients are mixed well.
Remove from heat, and add salt and vanilla.  Mix well, then add rice
krispies cereal to mixture and stir until all cereal is coated with
mixture. Pour warm mixture into a wax paper lined 9 x 13 inch pan, and
spread, then lightly pack with buttered hands, to form a flattened crust.
Spread melted chocolate chips onto top of crust.  You will need to work
quickly to roll your yule logs.  First, using a sharp knife, cut the crust
down the center forming two separate squares of crust.  Next, working from
the center-out, roll the logs jelly roll style, toward the outer ends of
the pan, making two separate yule logs.  Tightly wrap logs for slicing
later, or slice immediately, and place slices into a sealed container to
retain softness.
