Milky Way Rice Krispy Treats

In November of 2010, we were introduced to two things which would forever be loved by our family: Will and a new version of Rice Krispy Treats. I know, putting love for a dessert in the same category as our third born might seem extreme, but once you've tasted these things you'll understand. Our dear friends, Ron and Pam, brought us a tasty meal complete with dessert of, you guessed it, Rice Krispy Bars. Only these were far greater than any other Rice Krispy bar we'd ever eaten. After Pete raved and raved about them, he finally got Pam to give us the recipe. Then I understood why they were so incredible. I mean how can you go wrong with the following ingredients: Milky Way bars, butter, Rice Krispies and semisweet chocolate. You can't. Pete requests them all of the time. I just made them yesterday as we began celebrating his birthday a couple days early. So enough babbling, let's get to this recipe:

Milky Way Rice Krispy Treats
3 King sized Milky Way Candy Bars (or 5 normal sized)
6 oz. of butter
3 cups of Rice Krispies
8 oz of baking chocolate, semi-sweet

1. Cut candy bars into pieces and put into a microwave safe mixing bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir.
2. Cut the butter into pieces and add to the bowl. Microwave for 1 more minute, then stir. (if still not completely melted, add 20 seconds and stir again, repeat until melted)
3. Add Rice Krispies and stir*

4. Spray 9 x 13 pan with baking spray, then add mixture.
5. Melt the baking squares following the directions on the box. Pour over the mixture.
6. Refrigerate until solid.
*after step 3, take a spoonful of the mixture and eat'll thank me later. YUM.
