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.
I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 14, Sophie (Worm) is 13 and Chase's 9. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
