Easy Butterfinger Candy
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 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
1In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy corn in microwave on high in 30-second intervals. Stir every 30 seconds until JUST melted and smooth.
2Stir in 1 jar of crunchy peanut butter to melted candy corn until well blended. Press mixture into a parchment paper lined 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
3Melt 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.
4Cut into squares. Enjoy!
(Optional) Sometimes I drizzle some melted milk chocolate on top of the semi-sweet chocolate after it's cooled just for decoration.
