Kelli's Story

Sometimes I am embarrassed to tell people how easy this delicious candy is to make. It tastes very much like a Butterfinger candy bar, and can be made in about 10 minutes! (total time) I like to buy a lot candy corn right after Halloween when it is on sale so it can be a very inexpensive candy to make.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yep, Kelli is right. This DOES taste like a Butterfinger. So yummy - and easy!

Ingredients

1 lb
candy corn (16 oz)
1 jar(s)
peanut butter, crunchy (18 oz)
1/2 pkg
semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 6 oz)
1 Tbsp
vegetable shortening

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy corn in microwave on high in 30 second intervals. Stir every 30 seconds until JUST melted and smooth.
2
Stir in 1 jar of crunchy peanut butter to melted candy corn until well blended. Press mixture in a parchment paper lined 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
3
Melt chocolate chips with 1 TBSP shortening in a double boiler or microwave. (I prefer the double boiler.) Pour melted chocolate over candy. Allow chocolate to set before cutting. I usually place in the refrigerator until mixture is thoroughly cooled.
4
Cut into squares. Enjoy!
(Optional) Sometimes I drizzle some melted milk chocolate on top of the semisweet chocolate after it's cooled just for decoration.
