Let’s just be honest, candy corn looks festive sitting in a glass jar for Halloween, but you know that no one in your house really wants to eat it. Need a way to get rid of that leftover candy corn that is just sitting around your house collecting dust? Candy Corn Butterfinger Balls are the way to go. They are a little bit softer than a Butterfinger, but you’ll be surprised just how similar they taste.
- 2 Cups Candy Corn
- 1 (15-oz.) Jar Creamy Peanut Butter (Not Natural)
- 1 (12-oz.) Bag Wilton Dark Cocoa Candy Melts
- Halloween Nonpareils
- In a medium glass bowl, melt candy corn in a microwave for 1 minute. Mix and repeat for 15 second intervals until the candy is melted.
- With a silicone spatula, mix in peanut butter.
- Place in the refrigerator for two hours.
- Scoop mixture out with a tablespoon, and roll into balls.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
- In a small glass bowl, melt candy melts in a microwave for 1 minute. Mix and repeat for 15 second intervals until the candy is melted.
- Toss balls into the chocolate one at a time, shaking any excess chocolate off as you remove them on top of the tines of a fork.
- Place balls onto parchment or wax paper, and sprinkle with nonpareils.
- Decorate your Faux Butterfinger Balls after you dip every one to two balls. Otherwise, the chocolate may set too much for the sprinkles to adhere.
- For cleanup, soak the bowl and spatula you used to melt the candy corn, in very hot water; melted candy corn turns into cement.
- Refrigerate if you prefer a crisper texture.
- Use chunky peanut butter or add 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts.
