Description

With just 3 ingredients and effortless steps, in no time you can have homemade Butterfingers that are clones of the candy bars we know and love! (Some may say that these are even better than the originals). The best recipe I have come across in two years of baking.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces, weight Candy Corn
  • 16 ounces, weight Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 3 cups Milk Or Dark Chocolate

Preparation

Line an 8×8 or 9×9 inch pan with wax paper.

Melt the candy corn in the microwave in a medium bowl, stirring every 30 seconds. Continue heating for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Stir in the peanut butter until equally distributed and smooth. Pour into prepared pan and smooth. Place in the freezer for 10-20 minutes until firm.

In the meantime line a large baking sheet with wax paper.

Take the chilled bars out of the pan and cut them into mini Butterfinger size bars (I just eyeballed it – you can too!).

Melt the chocolate in a clean medium bowl in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds and continuing to heat for additional 30 second bursts until smooth.

Using a fork, dip each Butterfinger into the chocolate, turning to cover completely. Take the bar out of chocolate with fork and tap lightly on the side of the bowl so that excess chocolate falls off. Place on the wax paper lined baking sheet. Continue with Butterfingers until all are dipped. (If at any point your chocolate becomes too hard to dip, simply return it to the microwave and heat for another 10-15 seconds and stir. Do this throughout the process as needed.)

When all bars have been dipped, place them in the freezer for an additional 5-10 minutes. Enjoy.

Holy COW! These were soooo easy to make and ridiculously addictive :) Big hit with the fam! I’m a little nervous to be left alone in a room with them ;)

And at Stinsander, the only thing I can think of is that you might not have mixed the candy corn and peanut butter enough. You have to put some muscle into it so it’s all distributed and this is what gives it the texture of the butterfinger. It takes some effort at first but comes together. Either that or possibly these were left at room temperature in a humid place? I’m not sure what else it could be. Hope this helps!!

I’m so glad you all enjoyed them! I’m actually not on twitter I guess this is incentive (a kick in the butt) to join?

These were such a winner! I used chocolate almond bark instead of chocolate so it would set a little quicker. My office and my family loved them! I’m going to the store to stock up on candy corn so I can make these as Christmas gifts!

So, the flavor was great, but mine were a little chewy, instead of “crispity, crunchity peanut buttery butterfinger! What did I do wrong???

These were a big hit with my family! Instead of dipping each piece, I just made them as a two layered bar with semisweet chocolate. Less mess, still delicious!

These were great to make. I used almond butter, it was a bit hard to mix in with the candy corn so I will use peanut butter next time. Love this one.

These were so fun to make! When I read how they were made I wondered how they would come out but they were wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous! I made these with SunButter instead of peanut butter, with excellent results! My peanut allergic son was thrilled to try a “Butterfinger.”

I made these with dark chocolate, and the time required to set them properly was worth it! I’m also going to use these for holiday sharing — definitely easy to whip up and plenty of wow factor.
