Milky Way Caramel Crispy Bars

“Another twist on the good old "Rice Krispie Treats" but much easier and much yummier according to my family. I made these for camping last summer and they disappeared in no time around the campfire. These make terrific chocolatey, chewy, last minute, throw together bars for any occasion. Please note that cooking time is chilling time.”
