How Pinteresting! – Butterfingers

I pinned this on Pinterest on my “Dessert Goodness” board. Who could resist a homemade Butterfinger?! I did something I rarely do; I bought candy corns. My kids would tell you I’m a mean mom because I never just have candy laying around. It’s never just laying around because we all devour it like hogs at the trough.
Click on the picture for the original recipe.
I didn’t want to make a full recipe because I didn’t’ want to waste use a whole bag of candy corn if the recipe didn’t turn out. So instead of the given recipe of one pound candy corn and 16 ounces of peanut butter. I used one ounce of each.
I followed directions and placed the candy corns in a bowl to microwave. I did not use any butter spray because the recipe didn’t say to, but I wish I had. I ended up with a big old gunky mess! Once I got the one ounce of peanut butter mixed in with the melted candy corns, I transferred them to a buttered dish. The directions said to use parchment paper and I don’t think I’ve had parchment paper for about seven years.
So I scooped it out on to a plate to let it set.
Once it had set out for about an hour, I melted one tablespoon of chocolate chips and drizzled/spread it on the mixture. Then I offered some to my husband. He replied, “I used to have a cat. No thanks.” Apparently this looks like something to do with a cat? Hmmmmmm. I’ve never had a cat but I could guess about what he means.
Despite it’s less-than-appealing aesthetics, the taste was AWESOME! It wasn’t crunchy like a Butterfinger, but it tasted remarkably similar to a Butterfinger.
Do you think you’ll try this recipe? I’d say it was definitely worth it!
