Homemade Baby Ruth Bars

10/21/14


I can barely look at this picture without getting upset that these are all gone.  Why didn't I make one trillion??  Probably because I didn't want to gain one trillion pounds.  

As you know, every year at Halloween I like to try and recreate a popular candy at home, and after asking you for suggestions I decided upon Baby Ruth Bars this year!  Are you a fan?  They are very similar to a Snickers bar, actually... how are they different?  In my opinion they're better.  Also, who can forget the famous cameo they made in the movie Caddyshack?  Doody!!!  (Please confess in the comments below if you call poop "doody.")  I found this recipe, and gave it a try.  It seems like a lot of steps, but as long as you have everything prepped ahead of time, it's a relatively simple process.  I layered the nougat (weirdest word ever), caramel and peanuts in an 8x8 baking dish lined with parchment paper and then let that cool in the fridge.  Once the layers were set and hardened, I removed the bars from the dish and cut them into 8 pieces.  I melted the chocolate, and using two forks dipped each bar completely so it fully resembled the candy bar.       

nougat...      


caramel... 


peanuts...



These are BETTER than the real deal.  For real.  Really.  Doody!  (Sorry)

I love Baby Ruths too, but my family is more of a Milky Way crowd - do you think this would still taste delicious without the nuts? What if I did 1/2 the pan with nuts and 1/2 without? What do you think? Thanks for sharing this, by the way!
