Nana's O'Henry Slice

I got this recipe from my mother in law (who got it from her mother in law). Thanks to the Zulyniaks this is now one of my favorites!

9 graham crackers
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups graham crumbs
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup coconut, shredded
1/4 cup maraschino cherries, drained

Chocolate topping:
1 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons icing sugar

- Line 9x9 pan with graham crackers.
- In a saucepan combine margarine, milk and brown sugar. Boil, then simmer.
- Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Once mixed together, pour over crackers and cool.
- Top with chocolate topping. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, margarine and milk (about 2-3 minutes) stirring every 30 seconds to ensure they don't burn. Once all has melted together, stir in icing sugar and cover O'Henry Slice with it. Refrigerate to set.


  1. Oh wow, I think this is maybe the recipe I have been searching for - except my family put *pink* icing on it.
    I am going to try this version - awesome!

  2. I remember this bar... grandma's food is ALWAYS the best. I just did two posts of my grandma's fantastic gingerbread cookie recipe. I loved these. Why did we stop making them?
    Thank you!
