Google+ That Flour Child: "Butterfinger" Bites

"Butterfinger" Bites

These tasty little 3 ingredient Butterfinger knock-offs have become a little bit of a tradition around our house at this time of year.  Great study snack, and curbs all the chocolate-peanut-butter-halloween-candy cravings we have.  Plus... who really eats candy corn in large amounts anyway?
All you need is:

  • 3 cups of candy corn
  • 1 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter (not organic)
  • 3 bars of dairy milk chocolate (or milk chocolate chips)

You need to line a 8x8 baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray so that these chewy little bars pop out easily.  Stick the candy corn into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Stir after the minute is up and then continue at 30 second intervals until the candy corn is completely melted.

This is when you want to stir in the peanut butter, it will melt once it hits the hot candy corn.  But if it starts to cool down, pop it back in the microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time.  Pour this mixture into your prepared pan and score where you want to cut the squares/bars/hearts/whatever you're cutting.

Put this in the fridge/freezer until completely cooled.  When you take it out, finish cutting out your shapes and flip over onto a parchment covered cookie sheet.  Start melting your chocolate.  Use the same microwave method as the candy corn but start off at 30 second intervals.
Plop some melted chocolate on your squares and let it ooze over top, so spread it around so it covers it. Return to the fridge/freezer (if you're impatient like us) and wait until it cools.

Candy corn tastes much better this way in my opinion.
