THE RECIPE

3-Ingredient Butterfinger Bars

A true candy metamorphosis

Don’t you hate when you don’t get what you want when trick or treating? Maybe it’s too many caramel candies, too little chocolate or, heaven forbid, healthy snacks! Well, Amy’s here to help if you’ve got an overabundance of unwanted candy corn. Tiny and addictive, candy corn is a divisive substance- you either love it or hate it. But in our wildest dreams we didn’t imagine you could melt these bad boys down and create another one of the most beloved candies – Butterfingers! Ingenious in its simplicity, these butterfinger bars have only three ingredients, which means making your own candy bars at home can be simpler than you’ve ever imagined. That’s right three ingredients total. Count ‘em: chocolate, candy corn, and peanut butter. As ingredients, chocolate and peanut butter are well-known to be thick as thieves, and the addition of candy corn does not make three a crowd. Carefully melted candy corn is combined with peanut butter before being chilled creating a near identical texture to the Butterfingers you’d find in a store. Even the candy corn haters will fight anyone who tries to lay a finger on their Butterfinger bars!
