These Easy Homemade Butterfinger Bars are so delicious, dare I say they are better than the real thing. Plus, they come together in about 10 minutes with zero baking!
Are y’all sick of Halloween candy yet? I know I am. We have enough to supply a small country and my kids are turning into candy craving lunatics. I’m ready for it to be out of my house!
Well, I’ve got a treat for you. I know, that’s the last thing you probably want to hear right about now, but hear me out. If you have any leftover candy corn laying around (I know you do because let’s be honest, it’s the red-headed stepchild of Halloween candy), I’ve got the perfect recipe for you.
These Homemade Butterfinger Bars require only THREE ingredients and will help take care of that candy corn problem. Grab your chocolate, candy corn, and peanut butter and let’s get this party started.
Homemade Butterfinger Bars
First, you want to melt the candy corn. Place the candy into a bowl and microwave in 45-second intervals until it is melted, stirring occasionally. It will take about 2-4 cycles depending on your microwave.
Add the peanut butter to the bowl and microwave 30-45 more seconds to help soften the peanut butter.
Now get ready for an arm workout. Mix the candy corn and peanut butter until it is fully combined. It will be doughyish (on top of creating recipes, I also create new words).
Place a piece of parchment paper on to a baking sheet and roll or press the “dough” until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Or really you can do as thick as you want!
PRO Tip: I used a rolling pin to roll it out. It makes it a little bit easier.
Now it’s chocolate time! Pour the chocolate chips (or heck, use some bite-size chocolate bars from the kids’ candy buckets) into a bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until completely melted, stirring occasionally.
Spread the chocolate on top of the candy corn/peanut butter. Again, do it as thick or thin as you like. No rules recipe!
Pop it into the refrigerator and let it set for about 1 hour. This is the hardest part. Once the bars have set, cut or break them into the sizes of your choice.
I lied, this is actually the hardest part: not eating the entire batch in one sitting. Not that I’ve done that before or anything.
Enjoy and while you are chowing down, tell me:
Are you team candy corn or team heck no candy corn?
