Christmas Candy: Homemade Butterfingers

This was a first time recipe for me... I've never actually made these, but I have held this recipe in my mind since I was a freshman in college. I absolutely love Butterfingers, so I'm not really sure why it took me so long to try these. They were so easy to make, and they really do have the same crispy texture as a traditional Butterfinger candy!

Homemade Butterfingers Makes 24

  • 48 cheese crackers (Such as Cheez-It)
  • 6 cubes of chocolate almond bark
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

Heat the chocolate in a mixing bowl in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir well, and then return to the microwave for 30 seconds increments, continuing to stir each time until it is completely smooth. Set aside to cool.

    

While the chocolate is cooling, spread peanut butter on 24 of the crackers, then top those crackers with the remaining 24.

Honestly, we could skip the chocolate and I would be fine eating them like this. Geez, this was dangerous to be around me in the house!

When the chocolate is cool enough to touch, begin dipping the crackers in. I dropped mine in one at a time and then used a spoon to cover the other side.

Place the finished "butterfingers" on a baking sheet covered with parchment or wax paper and set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes so the chocolate can harden and set completely.

     

These are unique and would be great for a party or holiday get together... Another plus, they are so easy that your kids can help you make them!
