Recipe by Kelli Stovall
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

What a sticky fun recipe! The melted candy corn can be a challenge to stir but the end product is fantastic! I am not a candy corn fan at all but my husband loves the candy bar so I gave these a whirl. They turned out great! My husband said they were "extremely good" and "better than a Butterfinger." The taste is dead on with a slightly different texture which we like because it doesn't stick to your teeth.
Pretty good recipe, but next time I will use creamy peanut butter.
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 it even easier by just sprinkling the chips on the warm filling and spreading them after they melted. Go ahead-you know you want to make these!
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 candy corn. I would add an extra half cup. The candy corn is what makes it all stick together, and I felt it needed a little more sticky-ness, they were just a little crumbly. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!
Wonderful & Super Easy!
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 to stir. Have your peanut butter measured and ready to add before you start melting the candy corn. I poured mine in a parchment lined small cookie sheet. Once it set up (I did not put it in the refrigerator) I lifted out the parchment to cut. This cut nicely into squares and was a nice addition to Christmas cookie/candy platters. Everyone liked it, no one raved about it.
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!
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 shortening which helped the chocolate spread easier.
