Milk Dud Treats for National Teacher's Day


In celebration of National Teacher's Day we made these yummy no bake treat bars. I love these treats because they're made in the microwave and don't heat up the kitchen. They're perfect for a hot summer day. Makayla's teacher likes chocolate, so we thought these bars would be a nice, chocolaty change from the regular marshmallow or peanut butter rice krispy treat. The melted milk duds give it a nice ribbon of caramel throughout. YUMMY! Everyone's really enjoyed eating these bars. I hope Miss Morris enjoys them too.

MILK DUD TREATS
2 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
5 cups crisp rice cereal
1 package (10 oz) milk duds
1 TBSP water


Combine chocolate chips and shortening. Cover and microwave until melted (1-2 minutes). Stir. Stir in cereal. In another bowl combine milk duds and water. Microwave 30-45 seconds or until pourable; mix well. Stir in cereal mixture. Press into buttered 9 x 13 pan. Refrigerate 30 minutes and then cut into bars.

Katie said...

It is safe to say I probably shouldn't make these for the simple fact I more than likely wouldn't be able to control my ability to eat the entire pan by myself!!

Yum!!! My son is really big into helping me in the kitchen lately, so I like the idea of them being made in the microwave, instead of him insisting he wants to stand over the stove or open the oven!
