It's that time of the year that we think about special treats for the holidays and for fall/winter.
There are so many to choose from!
Goodies can be made for your own pleasure or to use as gifts.
Here is a recipe for those that embrace their 'inner pumpkin'!!!!!

Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted. Add remaining ingredients, and mix well. Pour into a buttered 13 x 9 pan - cool at room temperature. Cut into squares, store in frig in airtight container.
1 1/2 C chow mein noodles
