Homemade Butterfingers

My husband and I try whenever possible, to celebrate Valentine’s Day the weekend before to beat all the lines and wait times. Everyone is typically saving their out-to-eat dinners and movies for Valentine’s Day, so we are usually seated right away and have no problem doing what we wanted to do.

On Valentine’s Day, I make a nice meal at home and he usually plans the activity.  We usually include our kids on Valentine’s Day because we had our “Date-night” before hand.  For dessert this year, I made Homemade Butterfingers because it is one of my husbands favorite candy bars.  They were a hit!  Both my hubby and my daughter enjoyed them!

Best part of all…They only have 3 INGREDIENTS!

recipe from: Plain Chicken

1 lb. candy corn
16oz jar peanut butter
16oz pkg. chocolate candy coating

Melt candy corn in microwave on high 1 minute. Stir and continue cooking in 15-second intervals til melted, stirring after each interval. Stir in peanut butter.
Spread mixture in an 8×8 pan lined with parchment.
Cool completely.
Cut into squares.
Dip in melted chocolate candy coating.
Lay on waxed paper to set.

  1. I have seen these all over pinterest and wondered if they really taste like butterfingers because those are Matt's favorite candy bar too. Glad too know that they do. I will definitely have to try them now. PS Your food photography is awesome!

  2. Your recipe is posted all over facebook and I looked, thought and debated about making these. I actually have candycorn leftover from thanksgiving. But I said, no, be good, then,I open my e-mails this morning and saw your recipe. Ok, I'm making them, I can't resist, it must be meant to be!! Yum, yum!!

  3. Awesome! I just had to try it, but didn't have the candy corn.. I had some candy pumpkins that had the same consistency as candy corn, but more orange and pumpkin shaped. They turned out really good!
