You know when you have those cravings for something sweet, well that was me today. But I didn’t want just anything, and I didn’t want to bake anything either, so I thought that one of those no bake bars would be an excellent idea. I had seen this recipe on allrecipes.com and I just had to try it.
No Bake Babe Ruth bars.
We’re all familiar with the Babe Ruth candy bar and I for one love anything with nuts and chocolate so this was perfect for my craving. I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand, because they’re simple ingredients, so I set out to make this delicious bar. I’m so glad I did. I couldn’t have asked for anything simpler to make, it literally took me under 15 minutes to make this heavenly bar.
This recipe calls for peanuts, but I only had pecans so I used those, peanut butter, cornflakes, chocolate chips, doesn’t that just make you drool? Well next time you’re craving something sweet, this is just the treat to take care of that craving.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup peanuts I used pecans
- 6 cups cornflakes
In a large sauce pan add the peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips, peanuts and cornflakes. Mix well quickly before it begins to harden, making sure everything is evenly coated.
Press the mixture in a 9x13 inch baking dish and smooth out using a spatula or a knife. Allow it to cool completely before cutting into bars.
