Peanut Butter-Finger Bites

by aimee @ shugarysweets on June 8, 2011

Hello! It seems I’ve been avoiding the baked goods for a stretch of time here. Please understand. It’s swimsuit season after all, and all the hard work I have done with p90x is going out the window! I can’t seem to stop eating treats. Even though I send them to my husband’s work, I keep making more!

Now, I have my husband’s coworkers sending me recipes, cookbook files and links of food they like, or think I would like. Yeah, that’s bad. But good (if you are a co-worker of hubby please keep sending me ideas)! But it’s bad. Because one of those ideas was to make Butterfingers.

I was so determined to make these, that even though I opened my kitchen drawer and found my candy thermometer shattered, I forged on. Afterall, we’re talking butterfingers. The same candy bar I used to trade all other candy for on Halloween. Yeah, yum.

These are delicious. Given that I did not use a candy thermometer they still turned out perfect. Hubby thinks I should use less peanut butter next time, but I don’t always listen to him. Especially when he talks about food. I mean, c’mon, the guy hates mushrooms but loves peanut butter and garlic sandwiches. He’s mine ladies, back off!

Here’s what it comes down to though. These are really good, I ate five of them. Okay 6. Now, I must go exercise for the second time today (I had BBQ ribs too, which put me over the top), and I’m positive that while walking I will think about food. And what to bake tomorrow. Cause that’s what I do. Don’t judge.

One more thing. You could pour this into an 8×8 pan and cut into bites or bars. I however use my silicone brownie bites pan, which I love. You don’t need to grease it or anything, they pop right out when set! Perfect too for cookies, brownies, toffee. Yum. (this is what it looks like, you can find it online or at Michael’s…Wilton 2105-4923 24-Cavity Silicone Brownie-Squares Baking Mold. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter-Finger Bites

Keywords: dessert chocolate peanut butter candy

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter, warmed
  • 12 oz chocolate candy coating
Instructions
In saucepan, heat water, corn syrup and sugar until boiling. Boil for 10-12 minutes, keeping it at a continuous boil and stirring constantly. Remove from heat and quickly stir in warmed peanut butter.
I pour these into my silicone brownie pan that has individual bites (24). But you could also pour them into a foil lined, and buttered, 8inch pan. Work quickly as it begins to harden. Press lightly into pan or brownie pan.
Allow to set in refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight. When firm, melt chocolate candy coating according to package directions. I use chocolate candiquik, but you could also use Wilton's candy melts. Dip butter-finger in melted chocolate using a fork. Set on wax paper. Enjoy.

Yuuuummy! Butterfingers are my hubby’s favorite, so I think these are going on my list of items to bake. :) I totally feel you about the whole sweets ruining hard work thing. I’m in the same boat as you! And you had me cracking up about not listening to your husband’s opinions all the time when it comes to food. I second that… hehe.

Thanks for sharing with So Sweet Sundays! :)

Yet another thing I miss most from the U.S……Butterfinger or any chocolate/peanut butter marvel…..Could I possibly use Lindt chocolate or a dark chocolate instead of Wilton candy melts?…Really difficult to locate here…unfortunately…but I can use Lyle’s Golden Syrup for the corn syrup I believe!….Thanks for your generous sharing of your profound culinary acumen!!

aimee @ shugarysweets April 18, 2013 at 9:20 am

You could use a good quality chocolate, you just may need to “temper” the chocolate first so that it doesn’t melt on your fingers when you grab a piece of chocolate :)

OOPS!!…Just another question….What did you use for the garnish/sprinkle on top of these luscious-looking wonders….chopped peanuts or a cookie crumble?

I’ll bet crushed speculoos (Biscoff)cookie crumbles would be awesome…or a praline or toffee riff….or even putting Biscoff crumbles into the peanut butter mixture for “crunch factor”?!…Obviously need to get outside and on with my life today!…Chortle.

aimee @ shugarysweets April 18, 2013 at 9:21 am

Whoops, forgot to include that. I took a piece of the homemade butterfinger before dipping it and crumbled it. I then sprinkled it on top! ENJOY.
