A recipe for Babe Ruth bars, a little different than the one I already saw posted here on Zaar. These are easy and good--I've made them for church functions, and they were always a hit.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup white corn syrup
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup white sugar
- 6 cups corn flakes cereal
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2⁄3 cup peanuts
- Heat sugars, syrup and peanut butter in a pan until smooth.
- Mix cornflakes, chocolate chips and peanuts in a greased 9 x 13" pan.
- Pour peanut butter mixture over all and mix.
- Press into the pan.
- Allow to cool, and cut into bars.
They're good but nothing like the candy bar.
This was very yummy. I didn't have any trouble with dryness. I even used 7 cups of cornflakes! I mixed the cereal and pb mixture first and added the peanuts and Chocolate chips just before I pressed them into the pan. The bars were very moist,easy to cut and delicious. I buttered the pan and they just slid out! I feel good about giving my family cereal bars for snacks. This one is a keeper! Thank you!
I made these today for PAC 06. They turned out ok the only problem was that when I cut them into squares so much of the "under lying" stuff (cereal, peanuts, chips) did not get cut with the bar it only "grabbed the very top part of the dry mixture". there was not enough "moisture" to hold the whole thing together, therefore it left so much of the dry mixture still laying in the bottom of the pan. If I made these again I would maybe half the recipe, place it in a 8x8 pan and I would mix a little of the caramel "sauce" in with the corn flakes so it would hold it together. All in all it was a good tasting square though.
