"Sometimes I am embarrassed to tell people how easy this delicious candy is to make. It tastes very much like a Butterfinger 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."

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt candy corn in microwave on high in 30 second intervals. Stir every 30 seconds until all melted and smooth.
  2. Stir in 1 jar of crunchy peanut butter to melted candy corn until well blended. Press mixture in a parchment paper lined 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Melt chocolate chips with 1 TBSP shortening in a double boiler or microwave. (I prefer the double boiler.) Wish some store brands of chocolate chips I have had to use 2 TBSP Shortening.
  4. Pour melted chocolate over candy. Allow chocolate to set before cutting. I usually place in the refrigerator until mixture is thoroughly cooled.
  5. Cut into squares. Enjoy!
