O'Henry Bars

Most of the time a recipe comes with a good story, and if you're lucky, a good one. This is one of those recipes — it was my husband's grandmother's. She would make it quite often for her grandsons when they were young. And even as adults when we'd all visit her, she'd have a plate ready for us.

SO, if you're feeling generous to share, which may not be your first reaction, your friends/family/kids/coworkers/neighbors will rave about this little snack. (did I cover everyone?)

You'll just have to trust me: they're good.

What You'll Need:

2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c corn syrup
2/3 c butter (softened)
2/3 c brown sugar
4 c quick oats

1 c chocolate chips
2/3 c peanut butter

What to Do:

    1.    Blend first five ingredients until crumbly. Press into 9x13 greased pan.
    2.    Bake @350 for 15 minutes. Cool slightly.
    3.    In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together until smooth. Spread on oat mixture while still hot.

Because I have eager people waiting to eat this, I put it in the freezer for 15 minutes to cool, then move it to the refrigerator for another 15.

Quite possibly the world's perfect food. It has everything.

I made this last night, and the only thing that didn't go well was that I didn't make it early enough for it to set up well before I had to cut it. I was on a time schedule because I was taking dinner to someone, so the bars I took them were a Oh well, everything else about it was great! And here at home, I put the remaining bars in the frig until we had finished supper; and they turned out excellently. :)
