O Henry Bars--a yummy summer treat!

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.

1 cup sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup

Mix in a large saucepan and bring to a boil, then take off heat immediately*. 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.

Add: 1 cup peanut butter

Stir together and then add 6 cups of Rice Krispies

Pour into greased 9x13 pan

Melt: 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every thirty seconds and watching carefully not to burn or over-melt them. (I usually just use 1 pkg. of whatever chocolate chips I have in the house).

Spread melted chips on top of Rice Krispies mixture and give it a couple of hours for the melted chocolate to harden.

Like a Pavlovian response, my mouth began to water as soon as we clicked on your blog just now.

Your Oh Henry bars are the best.

Asked AnnaLisa to take your recipe and run down and make some, but she refused.

Thanks for triggering this desire for your Oh Henry bars.

Love, Grandpa-Grandma

Yummy! Maybe I'll just make that for dinner tonight. (protien, fortified cereal, and chocolate - add a glass of milk and you have a perfectly well balanced meal!)
