Directions
1.
Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan; set aside.

3.
For pudding layer, in a medium saucepan, melt the 3/4 cup butter. Stir in powdered sugar, dry vanilla pudding mixes, and milk. Spread pudding mixture over cereal layer; set aside.
4.
For frosting, in a small saucepan, combine chocolate pieces and the 1/2 cup butter; heat and stir over low heat until melted. Spread frosting over pudding layer. Cover and chill about 1 hour or until set. To serve, remove set mixture from pan by lifting foil. Place on a cutting board; cut into bars. Makes 64 bars.
