Butterfinger Clone

butterfinger-cloneOh my. These are delicious. Not quite the same as a real Butterfinger but so close.

Three ingredients and easy to make.

1 lb candy corn
16 oz peanut butter
16 oz dark chocolate candy coating

1. Line an 8”x8” pan with parchment or wax paper.
2. Melt candy corn in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir after each interval.
3. Stir in peanut butter.
4. Spread mixture into pan and cool completely. Trim edges if needed. Cut into 15 rectangles (3 rows of 5).
5. Melt chocolate according to package instructions.
6. Using fork, dip each rectangle into chocolate and completely cover. Place on waxed paper until set.

Makes 15 mini bars. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Slightly adapted from Plain Chicken.

  1. It is so close to being a Butterfinger! After the cooked mixture cooled completely overnight the flavor really came through. Thank you for this fun recipe. I would like to try it with almond butter or sunbutter for a friend who is unable to eat peanuts.

      • Well I am happy to report it really works with SUNBUTTER too! The SUNBUTTER
        seems to be a little more sensitive to heat. I threw it all in a pan on the stove and stayed right with it stirring all of the while. I did the same with the peanut butter.
        This is great! Thank you again.

    • Hi Penny and RufLove, too ~
      Oh, do let us know how these turn out with SunButter as a sub. (Since I blog for SunButter I’m always looking for new recipes, which is how I found your blog and comment.) I’d love to share the creation with people who love Butterfingers yet need to stay nut-free. (I know there’s at least one candy corn brand that is nut-free [made in a nut-free facility]). Savoring following your blog!

  2. oh dear i love butterfingers but it’s virtually impossible for me to get candy corn here 😦 guess I’ll have to stick to waiting for my delivery of butterfingers once again. The recipe does look very doable though!

  7. I saw this advertised as “3 ingredient…” candy corn isnt really an ingredient. Geletin, corn syrup, coloring agents- those are ingredients. You melted candy corn, period. My other issue is the finished project picture looks nothing like the working picture. That’s confusing to people.
    Now if I could figure out a way to get paid everytime someone calls me to discuss a recipe they found on the Internet and why it did nothing but make a mess in their kitchen.
