Homemade Butterfingers!

How cool are these! And the best thing is they taste JUST like a real Butterfinger bar. The texture is not quite as crunchy, but I think I like it better that way anyway. Only three ingredients are required to make these. Chocolate, peanut butter, and candy corn. Yep, candy corn. And after trying these myself, I intend on stocking up on candy corn this fall so that I can make these all year long. =)

Homemade Butterfingers

1 lb. Candy Corn
16 oz. Peanut Butter (smooth)
Dipping Chocolate

In a microwave safe bowl melt the candy corn for 1 minute and then at 30 second intervals until melted. Add the peanut butter and mix in with the candy corn. If the mixture seizes, put it back in the microwave and melt for 30 seconds more. Stir mixture with a rubber spatula until well combined and smooth. Pour into a greased 8x8 glass dish and refrigerate until solid.
Once chilled, cut into rectangles and remove from pan. Melt the dipping chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and dip each rectangle in the chocolate, coating all surfaces. Place on a piece of parchment paper and let set. Drizzle extra chocolate on top for a little flair ;).

Try not to eat them all in one day......
