"so easy... and the kids love it. beth"
"These are good, but I can't taste the Milk Duds in them.....the anticipation of the caramel was what compelled me to try this recipe. What I taste is chocolate covered crispy rice cereal, but that tastes pretty good. I think maybe I'd prefer milk chocolate chips, though."
"Super easy and tasty!!!"
