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!
