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. We like candy corn for about a day, then we're sick of it. I can't wait to give this a try with all the leftovers. Great post.

  2. No one in our house likes candy corn, but will definitely buy them for this recipe. We all love Butterfingers. I wish it had the same texture as Butterfinger candy bars though…. I love the flakey, chewiness of them. I will be on the hunt for some candy corn… good thing Halloween isn't too far away!

  3. WHO HAS CANDY CORN LEFTOVER AFTER HALLOWEEN?? At my house, Candy Corn never even MAKES it to Halloween!! Thx for the recipe! Can't wait to give it a try!

  4. Made these yesterday. I used Smucker's Natural smooth peanut butter, since it's the only kind I keep on hand. When the mixture cooled, it was flaky just like the kind you buy. I think it was probably due to the pb. A pb with added sugar would add to the sweetness, but by the time the chocolate was added, this recipe was perfect! So easy and soo yummy!

  5. Found you off Pinterest and made these days for my boyfriend's birthday. They are his favorite candy! I made it on the stove vs. microwave (sleeping baby that I can't bother!) and I think it worked well. Tasted the candy corn/pb mixture and it was GOOD. Can't wait to taste a full one! Thanks!!!

  6. Jenn – thanks for stopping by the blog! I am totally addicted to interest.

    These butterfingers are great! I stock up on candy corn so I can make these year round

  7. I just found this on Pinterest! Who would have thought? I have got to try this just because it sounds so unusual with the melted candy corn, but I do love butterfingers.

  8. Melissa – I believe that I have seen candy corn at Wal-Mart and Walgreens year round. I am actually looking for some today too!

  9. These are really good I have made them several times. But now I have run out of candy corn. Do you know where I can get it this time of year?
