Well Happy Halloween everyone!!!
Yes I know I have not blogged in FOREVER!! But this girl has been busy, but today
I have a quick easy recipe for Halloween or really anytime. 🙂
I do like a Butterfinger Candy Bar every once in awhile, so when I saw this online, I thought really does it taste like a Butterfinger????
This was one of those million some videos you see of recipes, and I was like 3 ingredients and you have a Butterfinger…well lets give this a try 😛 LOL!!
Now I made a big batch, I wanted to bring them to the office today for everyone for Halloween.
So I will give you the original recipe and then tell you what I did for large batch.
So you need – Chocolate discs for melting, Creamy Peanut Butter and a bag of Candy Corn…
Now you know tomorrow you will find a ton of bags of Candy Corn marked down to like 25 cents…LOL
So stock up and you can make this anytime 🙂
Melt Chocolate, spread on to a silpat or parchment paper
In a microwave safe bowl add peanut butter and candy corn
Heat in microwave until softened, then mix until smooth
and candy corn has been melted and mixed in
Once Chocolate layer is firm, layer candy corn mixture over top
Spread mixture over chocolate to the edge
Melt more chocolate
Spread it over top all the way over the edge
Like this, now let it set up, I let mine set on the counter
Now Cut and there you have your bars,
you also can free form bar shapes and then dip
the whole bar into chocolate
The original recipe is not mine, just google it and you will find a lot of them. 1 cup candy corn Melt half the chocolate and spread out onto a silpat or parchment paper, set aside to cool In a microwave safe bowl add candy corn, heat for 30 seconds and keep repeating until smooth, then add peanut butter, mixture will become stiff. What I did was a little different, and this is that recipe, this was a large batch 4 cups candy corn I used a silpat for this and made it over the entire thing To a microwave safe bowl add half the milk chocolate and half the semi-sweet, I also like to add a tablespoon of Crisco shortening to my chocolate to make smoother. Heat for 1 minute, stir, then heat again in 20 seconds intervals, stirring each time until smooth. Pour out all over the silpat, let set to cool, once cool, then in a large microwave safe bowl add candy and peanut butter. I added some peanut butter first then some candy, then peanut butter again then candy then peanut butter again. Heat for 1 minute, stir, then heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stir again, then heat in 20-30 second intervals until candy corn is completely combined into the mixture. TIP – take the candy corn and add it to your food processor to chop up, I think doing this will help in melting easier and then it will not take that long in the microwave. Let candy corn mixture cool just a bit, then spread it over the cooled chocolate, spreading it to the chocolates edge. Now melt the same way as the first, the remaining chocolate and pour over top the candy mixture. Let set up at room temp for at least 6 hours, if you can’t wait you can put it in the fridge to firm, but let it get to room temp before cutting or chocolate could crack. Cut into any size bar you want…and Enjoy!!!
