Homemade Butterfinger Bites really do taste just like the Butterfingers you buy at the store. I really love them in miniature form – who wouldn’t want a higher chocolate to candy bar ratio?!

I was a little bit wary about making candy bars out of melted candy corn, but even if you don’t love candy corn, you won’t believe how adding peanut butter absolutely transforms the taste of the candy corn into something that tastes just like the inside of a Butterfinger.

I use semi-sweet chocolate chips for the chocolate coating, but any type of chocolate will work. Milk chocolate, white chocolate or any other type of dipping chocolate will work great – so pick your favorite!

How to make homemade Butterfinger candy bars

How to make Mini Butterfinger candy bars

Place the candy corn into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 60 seconds and then stir. Continue to microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval until the candy corn are completely melted.

Add the peanut butter to the melted candy corn and then microwave for 30 more seconds. Stir it all together and immediately pour into an 8X8 pan lined with parchment paper. Press evenly into the pan.

Let the candy cool and set for 3-4 hours. Cut into 64 (1 inch) squares. (Sometimes I make them a little bit bigger-I got 36 bites out of this batch, but we were also taste-testing the outer edges before we ever got to the dipping part.) If you prefer to make full sized candy bars, cut into 16 bars.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips. Microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between each one until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Be careful not to microwave too long or the chocolate will seize and be unusable. If the chocolate is a little bit too thick to dip in, you can add a tablespoon of shortening to the chocolate to thin it out a bit.

Dip each candy bar into the melted chocolate and place on wax paper to set. If desired, add sprinkles on top before the chocolate sets up. As soon as the chocolate is hardened, the bars are ready. If you need the chocolate to set up faster, you can place them in the refrigerator to speed up the process.

How to store homemade Butterfingers?

Butterfingers can be stored at room temp, but the chocolate will stay set better if you store them in the fridge. Can be stored on the counter for 4-5 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a couple of weeks. I actually haven’t tried freezing these yet, but I’m sure it would work great!
