So last week I posted about a fun way to make use of all the candy corn lots of you may have and I also asked what YOU do with all that candy corn. Reader, Kelli, left a comment and a link regarding making homemade Butterfingers with candy corn. I checked out the site she linked to and was surprised to see how simple it looked AND how little ingredients were required. I was intrigued.
This homemade recipe requires 3 ingredients. Yep, just candy corn (which I’ve got on hand!), peanut butter (which I’ve got too much on hand! ) and chocolate candy coating (which I headed to the store for). Now check out how easy this recipe is!
Oh and before making this recipe, I want to warn you… so don’t say I didn’t. One word sums up this stuff – addicting. Very addicting. So addicting that it may become a problem. A serious problem.
3 Ingredient Homemade Butterfingers
1 lb. candy corn
16 oz jar peanut butter
16 oz package of chocolate candy coating (in baking section)
Now just melt the candy corn in the microwave. You’ll want to do this gradually, in intervals, and stir occasionally as it continues to melt. After it’s melted, mix in the jar of peanut butter. You will get a fantastic arm workout. Spread this mixture of deliciousness in an 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper. Set aside and cool completely. Finally cut into squares or really whatever shape you like, then just dip in the melted chocolate candy coating. Lay on waxed paper to set. That’s it!
I doubled the recipe. Not a good idea.
(Thanks so much for sharing this highly addictive recipe, Plain Chicken!)
