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.
