These bars tastes a lot like Oh Henry candy bars. A great holiday cookie, makes enough for a big crowd.

This was very easy to make, but it was difficult to remove from the pan. I made them for a family get together and they went quickly. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but next time I will use milk chocolate. Overall they were very yummy, good recipe!
