This dessert is Lindsey’s absolute favorite. When she studied abroad in Scotland, she took these on the plane with her for a little taste of home. We found this recipe on and haven’t been able to stop making it since. There’s one thing everyone always asks about this dish: “can I get the recipe?” This recipe is supposed to make 18 servings, but the five of us can demolish the whole pan in one sitting if we’re not careful.

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
6 cups cornflakes cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup peanuts



In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the peanut butter, corn syrup, brown sugar and white sugar. Cook stirring occasionally until smooth.

Peanut Butter

This is what the melted peanut butter, sugar and corn syrup mixture should look like when it’s ready.

Remove from heat and quickly mix in the cornflakes, chocolate chips and peanuts until evenly coated.Babe Ruth Bar Mixing

Pour the peanut butter mixture into the cereal, chocolate chips and peanuts while it’s still hot. That way the chocolate chips will melt and get deliciously gooey.
Press the entire mixture gently into a buttered 9×13 inch baking dish. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.Babe Ruth Finished Product
