I found this recipe 26 years ago in a magazine. It is always made as part of our Christmas baking and other time throughout the year. I won first place in a contest at my husbands work with this recipe. WE LOVE IT !!!

I made these for our neighborhood Christmas cookie gift exchange this past year. They turned out pretty good. Nothing like a Baby Ruth bar at all as far as any of us were concerned but a good combination of flavors. Recipe doubled easily.
