Corn syrup, sugar, and water should be heated to a boil in a medium pot. Until the mixture just bubbles around the pan’s edges, stir it continually. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and salt as soon as you remove the pan from the heat.
Gently fold in the cereal to coat it with the syrup.

Pour the mixture into the baking pan and allow to cool.

In a bowl over a pot of gently simmering water, stir the chocolate until it is about half melted. Continue stirring until the chocolate is smooth after it has been removed from the heat. Melt chocolate in the microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until it is completely melted. Keep swirling until the mixture is smooth.

To make an even coating, spread melted chocolate over the cookies. Remove from heat, let cool, and then slice into pieces. It yields 16 to 24 snacks.
