Homemade Butterfinger Candy Bars

We had to do it. We had to jump on the Butterfinger bandwagon. They looked so good. And the thought of making your own Butterfingers out of candy corn kind of intrigued me. I mean really… candy corn and peanut butter? Who knew?  And we just love candy corn.  It’s just so pretty. 

 

Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen knew. That’s where I first found these bad boys. She has a fantastic blog that I just love!
 
Here’s what you need:

 

Yep, only 3 ingredients: candy corn, peanut butter and milk chocolate.
 
Add 16 ounces of candy corn to a sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until melted. Remove from heat.
 
Add 16 ounces of peanut butter and stir until combined.
 
Turn into an 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper.

 

Allow to cool completely.
 
Melt chocolate.
 
Cut candy corn mixture into squares (or small rectangles) and dip in melted chocolate.
 
Let cool on waxed paper.

 

So simple!  And they taste wonderful.  Totally like a Butterfinger candy bar.  The inside isn’t crunchy like a Butterfinger but it’s not creamy either.  It’s hard to explain but they are delicious!!!



Enjoy!
