How to Make Homemade Butterfinger Bars

by Claire Hesseltine

These copycats are even better than the original, in my opinion. If you are not a candy corn fan, do not despair! These taste nothing like candy corn. So go ahead and give them a try!


  • 1 Cup Candy corn
  • ⅓ Cups Peanut butter
  • 1 ½ Cups Chocolate
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Line a 8x8 or 9x9 square pan with parchment paper.

    Step 2

    Gather your ingredients.

    Step 3

    Add the candy corn and the peanut butter to a microwave-safe bowl.

    Step 4

    Mix it up as well as you can.

    Step 5

    Microwave on high for 15 second intervals, stirring in between. It should look like this when it's done.

    Step 6

    Press it into the prepared pan using a spoon, as it is quite hot. Place it in the freezer for a few minutes until it cools down.

    Step 7

    Once the bars are ready, grab your chocolate. Melt it in the microwave or by using a double boiler, it's your choice.

    Step 8

    Invert the solid block onto a cutting board. It should slip right out of the pan. Peel off the parchment paper.

    Step 9

    One thing that's nice about this is that you can customize the bars to any size. You could even cut out different shapes. Anyways, cut down to the size you want.

    Step 10

    Grab your melted chocolate.

    Step 11

    Coat the copycat Butterfingers and place them on a parchment lined tray. Put that in the fridge to set up. To save time, you could simply spread chocolate on the uncut block and let it set.

    Step 12

    These delicious treats are just perfect for fall!

    Step 13

    You can easily double or triple the recipe as you see fit. Just remember to keep it in a 3:1 ratio. For example, 1 cup of peanut butter to 3 cups candy corn. Have fun!

    Step 14

    Oh no! Look who it is. Mr. Baby Butterfinger wants some attention too.

    Step 15

    Hmmm...let's compare. You know what? It's not even a competition! Homemade is the champion! 😂😄
