I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Mock Butterfinger Bars

One of my favorite candy bars is a Butterfinger.   They are so good.   I love this version of that candy bar.  You are going to see the ingredients and think "No Way", but it really tastes quite a bit like them.   You may only be able to get the one ingredient in the fall.  If you wait until after Halloween, you can often get the bag for 75% off.

(makes 30-35 mini bars)

*2 (9 oz) bags of candy corn
*1 (16 oz) jar of peanut butter
*1 (16 oz) bag of merkins milk chocolate

~Line a 8x8 inch pan with wax paper.
~Pour candy corn into a large microwave safe bowl.
~Microwave for 30 sections.
~Stir in a large spoonful of peanut butter.
~Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir.
~Repeat add peanut butter and microwaving for 30 seconds until the peanut is gone and the candy corn is completely melted and blended into the peanut butter. (About 21/2 - 3 minutes total).
~Spread mixture into prepared pan.
~Let cool completely.
~Cut into 16 pieces.
~Melt chocolate over a double boiler over low heat, stirring often (do not let the water boil or it will ruin your chocolate).
~Dip each candy bar into chocolate, completely coating candy (I use a fork).
~Place on a sheet of waxed paper until chocolate has set.
