  2. In a large saucepan, combine the corn syrup, butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter.
  3. Bring to a boil and cook for several minutes, stirring continuously for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the vanilla.
  4. Pour the sugar/syrup mixture over the cereal mix, and mix well. This takes a while.
  5. Spoon the mixture over a greased 15x10 baking sheet and press it flat with a piece of aluminum foil.
  6. Sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt and allow to thoroughly cool.
  7. When it's completely cool, cut into bars.
