  • Since You Asked: 'Oh Hank' can fill in for 'Henry' bar

  • My favorite candy bar has always been Oh Henry, but I can't find it anymore. Last week, I was at a church potluck, and one of the desserts tasted almost like an Oh Henry, but it was a bar cookie. I never figured out who brought it, but I wondered if you'd ever heard of it and could find a recipe.

    The Oh Henry bar, first made in Chicago in 1920, still is available; you can search for a retailer on the Nestle website. You can get the candy by mail order from Amazon and other online shops that specialize in nostalgic tastes such as candyfavorites.com.
    In the meantime, here's a recipe from the Miami Herald that sounds similar to what you had at the potluck: The Oh Hank bar echoes the caramel-chocolate-peanut flavor of an Oh Henry.
