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.

This is an excellent recipe. I took this to work and everyone loved it. After trying one bite, my husband insisted we'd be making this again! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC fall 08.
