I've made these and I'd say they make more like 24 pieces, not 10, so for @l davis it's more like 412calories per serving (989x10 original servings = 9890 divided by 24 real servings = 412). Although in reality, I know I ate two bars so maybe the author is going by the assumption that you can't just eat one :) It will depend on how you cut the bars too so it's not an exact science.

Is the 989 calories per 1/10th (per serving) or for the entire pan? That sounds like a lot per serving.

I've never had a baby ruth bar but these are pretty good. The bar part is kinda chewy. My favorite part is the mix of chips in the topping.
