Three Ingredient Butterfingers

So when I saw a recipe floating around the internet to make your own Butterfingers with 3 ingredients and one of them being the chocolate itself it caught my attention.  Then I saw the other 2 ingredients were peanut butter and…… candy corn!?!?  Well that was that I had to try them, whether they came out good or bad I figured melting down a whole bag of candy corn would at least be entertaining (p.s. it was lol).  These came out great for me except I did not have parchment paper, wax paper or even foil to line the pan with (I know I know, what kind of baker am I?!)  so I sprayed my pan with nonstick spray which worked okay, I still would have liked to have been able to pull the whole mess out of the pan and cut it on the counter but instead I had to cut it while it was in the pan which made then super uneven and a few of them cracked and crumbled but the inside really is flaky like a Butterfinger so it did make it difficult to get even cuts but they still taste awesome.  We snacked on the broken pieces and I gave some to grandma to sprinkle on her ice cream.

No one could believe they were only 3 ingredients and the main one was candy corn.  I knew that they probably would taste good but I never expected them to taste so close to the real thing, the flavor is spot on!  The texture is a little different than a regular Butterfinger, but I actually prefer the homemade versions texture as it doesn’t stick to my teeth.  I want to try to make a few homemade candies for Halloween and I will definitely make these again as they were a huge hit and they really took no time at all and are made in the microwave, it doesn’t get much easier than this recipe.  Even kids (with a little help of course) can make these, they are that simple.  I don’t know about you but Im going to stock up on clearance candy corn after Halloween because these would make great little gifts for the holidays!!
