Homemade Butterfingers

When mixed with creamy peanut butter, melted candy corn have a spooky resemblance to Butterfinger candy bars. Simply use a 3 to 1 ratio of melted candy corn to peanut butter, top with melted chocolate, cool and serve. Done. Easy. Delicious.

  • 3 cups candy corn
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup rice crispies (optional)
  • Chocolate melts or chocolate chips
  1. Line a 9x9 cake pan with foil, making sure to cover all sides.
  2. In a microwave safe dish, melt candy corns on 30 second intervals, checking and stirring frequently.
  3. Immediately stir in peanut butter and rice crispies, if using, until fully combined.
  4. Press peanut butter mixture firmly into the bottom of your prepared pan and set aside.
  5. Melt candy melts or chocolate chips and spread over peanut butter in an even layer.
  6. Allow to harden completely and cut into bite sized bars.

  • Spray the inside of your microwave safe dish with cooking oil for easy cleanup.
  • There is a very fine line between melted candy corn and ‘hard ball stage’ candy corn. Microwave in 30 second intervals and stir frequently!
  • Add the peanut butter immediately after the candy corn is removed from the microwave. 10 seconds back in the microwave can help achieve a smoother consistency if your mixture clumps.

Silicone molds are perfect for making these sticky treats. I used an appropriately themed pumpkin shape and my candies just popped right out when hardened.
