When I heard that putting peanut butter together with melted candy corn tastes like a Butterfinger, I did not believe it. But, sure enough I made this recipe and it tastes exactly like the inside of one and it comes together in minutes!

📝 What You’ll Need To Make Butterfinger Bites

  • Creamy Peanut Butter: The nutty flavor and creamy texture binds the candy corn together to make a perfect butterfinger-like dessert.
  • Candy Corn: Take good old candy corn and melt it in the microwave to get the perfect texture.
  • Chocolate Chips: These could be white chocolate, milk chocolate or even dark chocolate. Use this to to drizzle on top of the bites or dunk them entirely in chocolate for a more decadent treat. 

📖 How To Make Halloween Butterfinger Bites

1️⃣ Melt candy corn in microwave: In a glass bowl, add 1 1/2 cups candy corn. Microwave the candy corn in 30 second intervals until it’s completely melted. This should take about 2-3 intervals. 

2️⃣ Add peanut butter: While the candy corn is melting, measure ⅔ cup creamy peanut butter out. As soon as the candy corn is melted, QUICKLY stir in the creamy peanut butter until the mixture is evenly combined.

3️⃣ Shape butterfinger bites: Using about 1 to 2 tablespoons for each, roll mixture into bite sized sphere shapes and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

4️⃣ Chill butterfinger bites: Transfer baking sheet to the freezer for 30 minutes or until the chocolate spheres are firm.

5️⃣ Melt chocolate to drizzle: Once the butterfinger bites are firm, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a glass microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring until fully melted.

6️⃣ Decorate and serve:
With a fork or spoon, drizzle melted chocolate in a decorative pattern on the top surface of each butterfinger bite. Enjoy!

Storage: Homemade butterfinger bites will last up to 1 week when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

🧑‍🍳 Chef’s Tips

If you’d like to dip the entire butterfinger bite in chocolate, you’ll need about 2 cups of chocolate chips to coat each bite completel.

You could use a double boiler to melt the candy corn, but it will take a long time and will stick to the bowl even more.

The chocolate can also be melted in a double boiler.

To remove any sticky candy corn from the bowl, soak it in hot soapy water for 1 hour then scrub with a sponge.

🔁 Variations

Feel free to make other shapes or decorate with sprinkles or candy eyeballs. 

For a crunchy Halloween peanut butter bite, use crunchy peanut butter.
