O'Henry Bars

Back in the day, well okay, I was about 12 or so, my grandma would make these delicious bars on the weekend for me and my dad. They were delicious. She called them "O'Henry Bars" and made her's with Cornflakes cereal.
Now speed up time and these are more commonly known as "Scotcheroos" and made with Rice Krispies cereal.
Either way you make them, or whatever you call them, they seem to always be every one's favorite. They never seem to fail and let anyone down.
I do typically make mine with Cornflakes, because old habits die hard, I suppose :) But that's just how I grew up with them. But this time I didn't have enough on hand, but had enough Rice Krispies, so that's what I used.
