I wish I could say I tried these, but I didn't because I made them for an office party my wife had at work. Everyone at the office wanted the recipe so they were evidently well liked. Thanks!

Family favorite. My recipe is just slightly different - 1 c chocolate chips and only 1tsp vanilla, but otherwise the same and SO good.

These are my all-time favorite cookie/candy. I have been making these since I was a kid. I never understood why they are called Oh Henry bars. They dont' taste like the candy bar Oh Henry to me. These are chewy, crunchy and sweet. A wholesome tasting layer topped with a crunchy sweet layer. You must try these!
