Some people at my mom’s work were talking about this recipe and how amazing it was. They then told me the ingredients used to make these homemade Butterfingers and I was incredibly doubtful . . . I love Butterfinger candy bars, but I am not crazy about candy corn. They don’t taste like each other at all! So, in an effort to prove them wrong, I tried this recipe . . .
And I am still in complete shock over how DELICIOUS they were!
And yes, they really did taste like Butterfingers! It is unreal! The taste is seriously spot-on.
I did feel like they weren’t as hard and flaky as the actual candy bars, but I read that freezing the bars a for a little while will help with that. I actually liked these bars better than the Butterfinger candy bar. Try them out for yourself . . . they are so easy to make and require no baking at all.
Homemade Butterfingers Candy Bars
1 lb candy corn
1 (16 oz) jar creamy peanut butter
1 (16 oz) package chocolate candy coating
Melt candy corn in microwave on high 1 minute. Stir and continue cooking in 15-second intervals until completely melted, stirring after each interval. Stir in peanut butter. Spread mixture in a 9×9″ pan lined with wax paper. Let cool completely (put in the fridge if you want it to set up more quickly). Cut into bite-size squares or bars.
Melt chocolate as directed on package. Dip peanut butter bars in melted chocolate candy coating. Lay on waxed paper to set.
