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.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb
    candy corn (16 oz)

    peanut butter, crunchy (18 oz)
  • 1/2 pkg
    semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 6 oz)

How to Make Easy Butterfinger Candy

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 into 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 semi-sweet chocolate after it's cooled just for decoration.
