Easy Butter Fingers Candy

Rated as 4.46 out of 5 Stars

"Sometimes I am embarrassed to tell people how easy this delicious candy is to make. It tastes very much like a famous crunchy peanut candy bar, and can be made in about 10 minutes (total time)! I like to buy a lot candy corn right after Halloween when it is on sale so it can be a very inexpensive candy to make. Sometimes I drizzle some melted milk chocolate on top of the semisweet chocolate after it's cooled just for decoration."

  1. Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place candy corn in a microwave-safe bowl (not plastic) and heat in several 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until candy corn is warm, melted, and smooth.
  3. Stir peanut butter into melted candy corn until thoroughly combined; transfer candy to the prepared pan, pressing and smoothing the candy into the corners of the pan.
  4. Place chocolate chips and vegetable shortening into the top of a double boiler set over simmering water. Heat the chocolate, stirring constantly, until just warm, melted, and smooth. Spread warm chocolate over the peanut candy. Chill in refrigerator until candy is set, at least 30 minutes, before cutting into squares.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I like to buy candy corn on sale after Halloween to use for making candy for Christmas gifts.
  • With some store brands of chocolate chips I have had to use 2 tablespoons shortening.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Delicious! My husband, who hates candy corn, absolutely died when we tried these! He ate half the pan in the first 20 minutes after they were ready. Only thing I would change is the amount of...

Fantastic! SILLY easy and really very much like a Butterfinger. I used a 25 cent clearance bag of smushed "fall mix with candy corn" (the kind with the little orange and green pumpkins) I made i...

This candy is pretty close to the real deal in taste, slightly different in texture. The melting of the candy corn is pretty simple, but you MUST work quickly with this as it becomes very hard ...

These are excellent and taste exactly like the candy bar. I did not use shortening, I just microwaved the chips at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, 'til they were ready. Also, I stuck...

Wonderful & Super Easy!

Very sticky, and very good! My boyfriend was hesitant because he dislikes candy corn but he gobbled it up once they were finished. Just like butterfingers!

My family make these every year for Christmas. Mom makes some, my sister in law makes some, and I make some. We use creamy peanut butter (it mixes easier with the melted candy) and we use the ...

These taste like a fudge form of the candy bar. Awesome! I doubled the amount of chocolate. 6 oz is not enough at all. I did good with the 12 oz bag of chocolate chips and did add the shorte...
