Candy Corn n Peanut Butter Bars





Butterfinger candy bar lovers will find this candy irresistible! Who would have thought that a melted mix of candy corn, mello pumpkins, and peanut butter would make a mock Butterfinger bar. This recipe is a great way to use up extra, or leftover, candy corn. 



Ingredients

3 cups candy corn and mello pumpkins
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter 
12 ounces chocolate almond bark


Directions
  • Line a 9"x 9" pan with waxed paper. 
  • Place the candy corn in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  • Microwave the candy corn for one minute.
  • Stir briefly.
  • Microwave 30 seconds.
  • Stir briefly. 
  • Microwave 25-30 seconds.
  • Stir again until the candy is completely melted and smooth.Mixture will be stiff.
  • Add the peanut butter to the melted candy mix and Stir until it is well blended.
  • If mixture becomes too stiff, microwave the candy for 10 seconds and stir. Be careful to not overcook or the mix will stiffen up on you.
  •  Using a sturdy spoon, empty the candy out into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. I patted it down with my hand and then smoothed it with the bottom of the spoon.


  • Following the package directions, melt the chocolate almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl.
  • When it is melted and smooth, pour it over the peanut butter candy mixture.

  • Smooth the topping.
  • Place pan in the refrigerator until the topping and candy are completely set.
  • Remove the pan from the refrigerator. Carefully remove the hardened candy from the pan.

  • Slice with a large knife into desired size and shape.
