O’Henry’s are oh! so! wonderful! I don’t know how they got their name, but if you’re a fan of peanuts & chocolate & butterscotch … and following the easiest recipe ever … then you must try these. I made a batch this morning (tonight is scrapbook night at my house).
I got this recipe from my friend Carol, who got it from her husband’s grandmother. Not that you’d care, but I just don’t want to take credit. : )
1 c. Karo syrup (found with other syrups)
1 c. sugar
1 c. peanuts (I got unsalted and I don’t chop them)
1 c. peanut butter
3 c. Rice Krispies
1 pkg. chocolate chips
1 pkg. butterscotch chips
Stir together Karo syrup and sugar. Microwave for 2 minutes. Add peanuts and peanut butter to the Karo mixture. Microwave everything for 1 minute. Add 3 cups of Rice Krispies. Spread into a greased 9″ x 13″ pan.
Combine chocolate chips (on bottom) and butterscotch chips in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Spread over krispie mixture and cool in the refrigerator.
Remove and cut into 1-inch squares.
