What’s chewy, loaded with oatmeal (making it a candidate for breakfast 😉 ), and has chocolate spread on top? These O’ Henry bars!
You guys. If you’re a fan of chewy bars, this treat is for you. Made with Golden Barrel Light Corn Syrup, the oatmeal-based bars are soft and chewy. And the chocolate topping–yum. It’s simply melted chocolate chips, peanut butter and a splash of vanilla extract. Seriously finger-lickin’ good.
These bars are super easy to whip up and only require about 20 minutes in the oven, making them a perfect go-to snack or a treat to bring along to a friend’s house. They won’t last long. I gave Finn a piece to try and he was quickly asking for another one. They’d also make the perfect after-school snack.
So do you need a treat to bring along to a potluck? Or maybe a new after-school snack? Or maybe just a tasty dessert–whip up a batch of these O’ Henry Bars today!
O' Henry Bars
Chewy, buttery, oatmeal bars with a smooth chocolate peanut butter icing...these bars are sure to be a hit at your house!
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add corn syrup and mix until incorporated. Remove from stand mixer and mix by hand the oatmeal and salt, until combined. Pour mix into a greased 9x13" pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges start to bubble. Let cool slightly.
Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler bowl over stove, stirring until completely melted. Turn off heat and add vanilla extract. Spread over oatmeal bars. Cool before cutting and refrigerate.
