O Henry Bars Recipe

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Here is a recipe for one of our favorite treats any time of the year, but they are particularly good to make in the summer since you won't have to turn the oven on.
O Henry Bars

1 cup sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 pkg. (12-oz.) chocolate chips (It's extra good with a cup of butterscotch chips and a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Directions:  Mix sugar, Karo syrup, and peanut butter in a large saucepan and bring to a boil, then take off heat immediately*.

NOTE: It is really important to make sure it doesn't boil too long, as it is quite easy to over-cook them and have them become too hard.

Stir together and then add the Rice Krispies

Pat down into a  greased 9x13 pan. 

In a small bowl, melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every thirty seconds and watching carefully not to burn or over-melt them.

Spread melted chips on top of Rice Krispies mixture.  Allow to set for a couple of hours.   Enjoy!
