I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Baby Ruth Squared

Baby Ruth Candy Bars are a real old time favorite. This recipe takes that classic taste we all know and love and transforms it into and easy to make treat. I highly suggest making a double batch cause these won’t last long.

Baby Ruth Squares

1 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups salted peanuts
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 heaping cup peanut butter (Creamy)


1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons of butter

Cook corn syrup and sugar until it boils. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, peanuts and cereal. Press into 9 x 13 inch pan. For topping bring sugar and milk to a full boil, remove from heat and add chocolate chips and butter, mix well. Spread on top of cereal mixture, let cool and cut into squares.

This sounds absolutely delicious - can you still get Baby Ruths outside of the nostalgia-candy stores? I haven't seen them in a long time (I'm in Canada though, and our candy is a bit different!)

Lidian, we still have them in our local supermarkets.
