Ingredients

  • 16 oz candy corn (1 bag)
  • 16 oz. peanut butter (1 small container)
  • 16 oz. milk chocolate chips or chocolate candy melts

Instructions

  •  Microwave the candy corn in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until smooth and melted. This will take about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in peanut butter with a sturdy (wooden) spoon. Scrape sizes of the bowl with rubber spatula and work quickly because the candy corn mixture will start to cool and harden. 
  • Line a small baking dish (8" x 8") with parchment paper and spread mixture in baking dish. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  •  Cut peanut butter and candy corn mixture into bit sized squares. Refrigerate until ready to dip in chocolate.
  • Melt chocolate in 30 second intervals in microwave. Stir between each interval. Dip squares into chocoalte, tapping fork against the bowl so that the excess can drip off.
  • Place butterfinger bites on baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper and refrigerate or freeze until hardened, about 15 minutes.

Notes

Tip: Keep undipped squares in refrigerator and work in small batches. The longer they sit out, the faster they soften. It's easiest to dip the squares when they are cold.
 
Store homemade Butterfingers in refrigerator.
