I don’t eat a lot of candy, but I l♥ve Butterfingers.  When I saw this recipe on the Taste of Home forums, I knew I had to give it a try.  Everyone on the board said it tasted just like a real Butterfinger.  The best part – this recipe only has three ingredients! 
How can you make a Butterfinger with only three ingredients?? Well, the secret ingredient is candy corn!  Actually, it is melted candy corn.  I would have never thought to melt candy corn, but it turns out that melted candy corn mixed with peanut butter transforms into something amazing!  We were shocked at how great these tasted and how close they are to real Butterfingers.  I had to give most of these away so we didn’t eat them all by ourselves.
This is one of the best homemade candies that I have ever made.  I think these would be cute made into suckers for the holidays.  I am going to look for some Christmas tree candy molds and give it a try.
This is a great way to use up any candy corn you have leftover from Halloween.  So get to it!

  1. I don't eat candy bars but I think your idea of making them into "pops" for the holiday a good one. I hope you share once you've worked it out. If they're easy enough I might make 'em to send in to school along with some other stuff.

  2. Oh my goodness, are you kidding me? I've seen lots of remakes of candy, but would never even have wondered if this one was done. Looks and sounds de-lish. Must check Halloween clearance items!

  3. I think i am in love…. now i can make them at home! What about the texture? That is part of the whole Butter-Love thing…
    Who would have though, dang candy corn!
    If you mix candy corn with salted peanuts, it tastes like a payday 🙂

  4. Wow! This is a must try recipe!! I love butterfingers too and this recipe resembles a dessert that I had as a child in the public school system in Colorado. YUM!
    I love Taste of Home♥
