Babe Ruth Bars are modeled on Babe Ruth candy bars.  Babe Ruth Bars are delicious- chewy, crunchy and chocolatey with salty peanuts on top.  Babe Ruth Bars are also no-bake, a bonus for this busy time of year.  My apologies for only 1 photo- these disappeared so fast I didn’t have a chance to take more!
