Oh Henry’s

Oh Henry’s are a treat that are very reminiscent of growing up in Toronto, Canada.  These delicious treats are named after a favorite chocolate bar, Oh Henry! which has a combination of chocolate, salted peanuts and caramel in it.

This treat uses butterscotch instead of caramel and gives texture by adding chow mein noodles. With only 4 ingredients and taking less that 15 minutes to make, it’s hard to find a more mouthwatering and simple confection!

My friend, Tammy, served these straight from her freezer up at her cottage on the lake in Collingwood, Ontario and I never forgot how good they were.  Thanks for sharing this recipe, Tam!

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips together in a large saucepan, in a double boiler, or in the microwave (my choice…just melt for a minute at a time, stir, and add more time if necessary).

Stir in the chow mein noodles and salted cocktail peanuts.

Drop little mounds from a teaspoon on to a lightly greased baking sheet.

Either refrigerate or freeze the treats until they are firm.  You can keep them in the freezer and just remove however many you want to serve.
