Baby Ruth candy bars are like Snickers with a double dose of peanuts - making them my favorite candy bar by far. It doesn't get better than nougat, caramel, peanuts and chocolate. Now you can make Baby Ruth at home - and let me tell you, this is hands-down the best candy bar I've ever made! It's just. . . I can't describe it. It's soooo good. You're just going to have to try it yourself.
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!
