What to do with the left over candy corn? Why not make a favorite candy!

Step 1: Gather Ingredients!

Picture of Gather Ingredients!

You will need a 9x9 pan, parchment or aluminum to line it.
1 bag of candy corn
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 cup of peanut butter (smooth)

Step 2: Melt Melt Melt!

Put about 2 cups of candy corn in a microwave safe bowl. Run it for about 30-45 seconds on high. Stir it, check if it's smooth, if not, run it again 30-45 seconds at a time, stirring after each microwave run. When it looks like the second picture, add the cup of peanut butter (mine is all natural and a little oily in the 3rd picture) melt that in the microwave too, 30 seconds at a time.
When it looks like the 4th picture you are basically ready for the next step!

Step 3: Cool and Cut!

Pour the peanut butter candy corn mixture into the lined 9x9 pan. Put it in the fridge for 60-90 minutes, until cool to the touch and able to cut!
(Note: if you freeze it, it will break up unevenly like my second photo!)

Step 4: Melt and Coat!

Take that bag of chocolate chips and melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until smooth!
Dunk your pieces of butterfinger middles on the chocolate and place in parchment.
Put in the fridge for 30-60 minutes until fully cooled!
(Tip: putting parchment on a cookie sheet helps when moving the candies to the fridge for the final cool down!)

Step 5: Containment

So weird! I was eating a Butterfinger last night and Googled a recipe! Yours is much simpler. Thank you for sharing!

Glad you found it simple! That was the idea! I find that Texturally these are denser than Butterfinger candies from the store, but they taste better! Plus you could make white chocolate if you wanted!
