There are a few differences with this Baby Ruth recipe than you will find anywhere else on the web. For starters, I really wanted to make a candy bar that looks like a Baby Ruth. And I wanted it to be easy. So the construction technique is different. Secondly, I wanted to capture that not-quite-chocolate candy-bar-chocolate flavor. So I added a handful of butterscotch chips to the milk chocolate. It was the perfect subtle boost that took this candy bar from obviously-homemade to out-of-this-world.
The great thing about making homemade candy bars is that you know exactly what goes into it, and can adjust the recipe to accommodate food allergies or dietary restrictions. And you can make them as big or as small as you like.
One person, upon tasting my homemade Baby Ruth bars, said I had ruined him on candy bars forever. Now that's how you make a first impression! I hope you give these a try!
