    Baby Ruth Bars
    by Jellyqueen

    Here is a recipe to use up all that Special K cereal we have been so excited about here lately. Actually this is a really good recipe that I got from my SIL several years ago. It is fairly quick to put together. It just has to be done a little ahead of time so it will get a good chill in the refrigerator. Cook time is estimated and does not include chill time.

    1 cup sugar
    1 cup light corn syrup
    1 3/4 cups crunchy peanut butter
    5 cups Special K cereal
    1 (6.00 ounces) package chocolate chips
    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

    1. Bring sugar and corn syrup to a boil.
    2. Remove from heat and add crunchy peanut butter.
    3. Blend well.
    4. Add cereal, stirring to coat.
    5. Pour into buttered 9x13 inch dish.
    6. Melt chips and plain peanut butter, stirring until smooth.
    7. Spread over cereal mixture.
    8. Refrigerate until cool, then cut into squares

    English Toffee
    by Bruce Gurnick

    This recipe is unbelievably tasty. This toffee make a delicious gift at holiday times. You won't be able to control yourself from eating more. Other nuts can be substituted for almonds if you wish.

    1 lb butter
    2 cups sugar
    6 tablespoons water
    2 tablespoons light corn syrup
    1/3 lb raw slivered almonds
    3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    1. -Preparea slightly greased cookie sheet pan that has edges (is this called a jelly roll pan?)-Combine butter, sugar, water and corn syrup in a medium saucepan.
    2. Mix well and cook over medium heat to 260 degrees on a candy thermometer (Be careful, it will be vigorously boiling. This is hot stuff!).
    3. Stir occasionally, but don't scrape down the sides of the pan because it will make the candy grainy.
    4. -At260 degrees, add the almonds and stir continuously, but gently until the mixture reaches exactly 300 degrees.
    5. -Removefrom heat and pour onto slightly greased pan.
    6. -Spreadout candy to edges and corners.
    7. -Topwith chocolate chips.
    8. The heat from the candy will melt the chocolate, after several minutes, spread the chocolate to fully cover toffee.
    9. -Sprinklewith walnuts if desired, though some people prefer to make skip the walnuts.
    10. -Coolcompletely, about 2 or more hours.
    11. -Breakinto pieces and try not to eat too much yourself.
