Well, finally a year later, I bought the candy corn. Step one accomplished! I surfed through numerous recipes, comparing them. All very similar, just slight variations. I finally decided to go for it! I was so worried that I was throwing away a jar of peanut butter, and a bag of chocolate chips for this. No worries though... It was a complete success! All of my friends who have tried these, LOVE them. The texture is not as crisp as the candy bar, but the flavor is just amazing!
Homemade Butterfinger Bites (Inspired by Plain Chicken and The Baking Robot)
16 oz. candy corn
16 oz. creamy peanut butter
12 oz. milk chocolate chips
1 T. Shortening (optional)
Line 8”x8” pan with wax paper. Melt candy corn in microwave for one minute. Stir, and continue in 30-second intervals until melted. Stir after each interval. Stir in peanut butter.
Spread mixture into pan and cool completely. Cut into bite sizes. Trim edges if necessary.
Melt chocolate according to package instructions. If needed, add one tablespoon vegetable shortening to thin the chocolate. With fork, dip each "bite" into melted chocolate and completely cover. Place on waxed paper until set. Store in airtight container.
