Homemade Butterfingers

IMG_1219-title
Today’s Secret Recipe Club reveal marks my one year anniversary of being in the club! As they say, time flies when you’re having fun, right? This month, I was assigned Debbi Does Dinner… Healthy and Low CalorieΒ written by Debbi, aka Group C’s fearless leader! As always, I had a hard time deciding what to make, because there are so many yummy choices in her recipe index:Β her Cheese Ravioli with Onion Butter Sauce, Caramel Sticky Buns, and Honey Lime EnchiladasΒ are all now on my “to make” list.

But, when I saw that she had a recipe for homemade Butterfingers on her blog, and they require candy corn, I knew I just had to make them. I mean, what perfect timing right? So yeah, these homemade Butterfingers are delicious! They don’t have the crunch that a store-bought Butterfinger has, but the taste is totally on point. Plus, they’reΒ very easy. As in, almost easier than going to the store to buy one. I say, skip the trip down the candy aisle for discounted Halloween candy in a few weeks and just make these instead.

Stir in the peanut butter. Work quickly, as the candy corn starts to harden pretty fast.
