Halloween has been over for a couple of weeks now, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t still have some Candy Corn sitting around on my counter. Every day I would walk by it and it would taunt me to grab a handful. Eventually I decided it was time to do something with it, either throw it out or somehow reuse it. But what can you reuse candy corn in?
Thanks to a good old google-ing session, I found out there is A LOT of stuff I can do with candy corn. For starters, I found candy corn infused vodka, candy corn turkeys for Thanksgiving and even some lady who likes to make jewelry out of it.
I thought I might look a little strange walking around wearing candy corn necklaces in December and I like my Vodka to be Rum…so I kept looking. Then I stumbled upon a lot of people making Butterfingers out of their leftover Candy Corn. Say WHAT??
They were claiming that you heated up some peanut butter and some candy corn…and out came the inside of a Butterfinger. Then you just dunk it in some chocolate, and tada!, you got yourself one of my favorite candy bars ever. First of all, I thought this was too good to be true. But, I also thought it was a lot better than throwing out my leftovers…or finding myself binging on them mixed with some salted peanuts (Seriously – Candy Corn + Salted Peanuts = a Payday!). So I put it all in a pot (snapped a photo for proof on instagram) and give it a shot.
And surprise, surprise but the interwebs were right again! It is possible to make Butterfinger bars out of candy corn and peanut butter. It’s a weird miracle!
I dipped mine in white chocolate and sprinkled them with chocolate sprinkles…for no other reason than I can have a regular Butterfinger anytime…but a white chocolate one with sprinkles is special.
P.S. If you are a fan of Chick-O-Sticks, the filling tastes just like them before it’s dunked in chocolate!
