O Henry Bars

If you need a easy, quick, yummy treat recipe this is the one to try.


1 c. Karo syrup
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. crunchy peanut butter (can use creamy, but it is SO much better crunchy)
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
4 c. rice krispies or cocoa krispies, Both are good.

1/2 bag Chocolate Chips
1/2 bag Butterscotch Chips

Cook Karo Syrup & sugar together until the sugar dissolves, take the pan off the stove and mix in the peanut butter & vanilla (if desired) until it is smooth. Pour mixture over the rice krispies and mix together until the rice krispies are well coated. Place in a greased 9 x 13 pan.

While the Karo Syrup and sugar are dissolving put the Chocolate Chips and butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl and warm them up until they are completely melted. The trick to not scorching the chocolate is to only do it in 1 - 2 minute increments and stir inbetween each minute.

Spread over the top and WHALLAH, you are done.

It is easiest to cut them when they are warm. You can wait until the chocolate is more solid to eat them or just eat them warm. My kids usually can't wait.
