Easy “Oh Henry” Bars


This recipe was submitted by GKC reader, Elana Bacon. We’ve had these and they’re really good – perfect for when you want a treat but don’t want to make too much effort. Thank you Elana!

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup chocolate chips

Place peanut butter, corn syrup and sugar in a double boiler (or a big glass bowl over a pot of simmering water) stirring every once in a while until smooth. Remove from heat and add the Rice Krispies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Smooth batter into a 9×13 pan lined with baking paper. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly on to and place in oven for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread melted chocolate across the top of the bars. Cool in the fridge for about 5 minutes. Cut into bars. Most importantly, enjoy!

GKC variation: After adding the Rice Krispies, form mixture into balls. Melt the chocolate chips and roll the Rice Krispie mixture in the melted chocolate. Place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and chill. Same taste, slightly more elegant presentation.

  1. these look amazing, i’m drooling! are there any alternatives to corn syrup. is it bad for you or does it just sound bad?

    • This recipe was submitted by our reader Elana so I have not tried to substitute with another ingredient like honey. That may work well and would be equally sweet. Corn syrup hardens well so if a dessert is being shaped it thickens and hardens better than other sweeteners. They are decadent and sweet but are delicious and especially pretty as balls dipped in chocolate.
