Butterfinger Fudge

This Butterfinger fudge is so amazing and easy – and it starts with candy corn!

butterfinger fudge

I think Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a kid. I mean, it’s the candy holiday. How could I not love it?

{Back then Halloween was the only candy holiday; Valentine’s Day was purely give-the-kids-you-like-a-card and not like it is now. My mom did not make three dozen heart shaped cookies and wrap them special for every kid in class. And I kinda miss those days…}

I know I loved me some Reese’s. And M&Ms. And Twix (the peanut butter ones, remember them? I never see them anymore). But Butterfinger? I’m not sure I remember being SO in love with them.

I mean, I know my mom loved them. She always had them hidden in her stash.

Have I not told you about my moms’ candy stash yet? Oh, goodie. Buckle up, kids.

You see, my dad (and, it turns out, me) have this problem with portion control. As in – we have none. So, two candy bars could disappear in about three seconds. Candy isn’t cheap and my mom was tired of it disappearing quick as pinot grigio at a RHONY event. So, she hid her candy from the two of us.

Occasionally she would let me in on the secret. Or, I, um, would find it on my own. No, you should not leave me alone in your bathroom. I will look in the medicine chest.

Anyway, I learned from a pro and I have perfected the hidden candy stash. I hide it in plain sight…where Jordan wouldn’t even think to look. Kinda genius, if you ask me.

Okay, back to the matter at hand.

Butterfingers. I remember eating them as a kid. I mean, I ate them the normal way and everything: I sucked off all the chocolate and then ate the center.

What? That’s totally normal, right? RIGHT??

When Hayley posted her Homemade Butterfingers a few weeks ago, I remember that I totally wanted to make them because I had a huge bag of candy corn in my pantry.

Oh yeah, you know about this recipe, right? How candy corn and peanut butter get married and produce Butterfinger children? It’s so strange it’s weird at first…like your brain doesn’t want to accept the fact that it’s true.

So, anyway. I decided to make the homemade Butterfingers. But, well, I cannot follow a recipe. So I used Hayley’s recipe…and made it into fudge.

Because fudge is cool. And, since Christmas will be here, like, tomorrow, you all are probably already making your “foods to make and give” lists, right?

This fudge tastes like Butterfingers. It’s soft and chewy, a little chewier than traditional fudge. I like it plain…but for the purists out there, I dipped some of the squares in chocolate.

Those were good too.

If I wasn’t on this cleanse I’d have to hide them from myself.

And that never really works, does it?

{BTW, I had to show that pic. I actually have pretty nails!!! For another week or so; it’s a shellac manicure. :)}

Thanks for reading!

Butterfinger Fudge

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups Candy Corn
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips, optional

Directions:

  1. Line a pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. (I used an 8x8 pan. The fudge was very thick, so if I made it again, I’d use a 9x9 pan.)
  2. Add Candy Corn and peanut butter to a medium saucepan and heat, over low heat, stirring every 30 seconds or so, for about 3 minutes. Add sweetened condensed milk, stir, and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds (you don’t want the milk to boil; a slight simmer is okay). Add white chocolate chips and stir until everything melts together. (It will seem like it’s never going to melt...but it will!)
  3. Spread evenly in pan. Cool on counter about 15 minutes, then chill until hardened. Cut into squares.
  4. If you want, you can dip the fudge in milk chocolate. Melt chocolate chips (I added a little vegetable oil to thin them) and dip the bottoms of the fudge squares in the chocolate. Set on a wax paper lined cookie sheet to harden.

Notes:

This fudge is a little softer and chewier than traditional fudge. But it actually tastes like a Butterfinger!

    I literally just made butterfinger fudge this week too! Mine is layered with chocolate on the bottom and top with the butterfinger mixture in between. Sadly I haven’t gotten around to posting it yet : )

    I was the same way, I just couldn’t believe that butterfingers was that easy to make! Yours is way prettier than mine, still yummy thought!

    Dear Genius,
    You rule. And so does this amazeballs fudge. Butterfingers are my weakness. Do you believe me when I say I could easily bypass Reese’s in favor for Butterfingers? Every. Single. Time. Therefore, this fudge was basically created for me and I need some. Okay, all of it.

    Love the Shellac Manis! The french seem to last a bit longer for me. I was full on, hands in the dirt, gardening and they did not chip! LOVE IT and LOVE this fudge. I made my homemade Butterfingers into cake pops (of course) last year and LOVED them too! I bet the fudge version is even better!

      It’s my first one and I love it. This afternoon I was making the bed and jammed it into the sheetrock of the wall. Came away with sheetrock in my nail…but the manicure was still perfect! Weird. And cake pops? I need to look back for that one!

    I love how easy it is to make butterfingers…last year I made butterfinger eyeballs. But this awesome looking fudge is way WAY cooler. I actually like how thick it is, and of course I prefer the dipped in chocolate version. I hide candy in plain sight too. There is a big bag of Reeses right in the front of the cupboard, but everyone knows that they can’t have any unless I open it and ok it:-) Gotta love being a food blogger right?

      Made this recipe and took into work for a taste-test . . .
      No one could BELIEVE it was made with Candy Corn – everyone LOVED it! I goofed on the recipe and only used 1 cup of white chocolate chips so that made it a bit more peanut buttery tasting – but still amazing!! Definite keeper :)

    The butterfinger bars sound good but the fudge sounds awesome. I’mma definitely going to make these bad boys when I order a bag of candy corn off eBay (yay for eBay).

    And yes! I had the same problem as a child but my parents were quite strict so I never raided the confectionary cupboard often. My kids do the exact same, even resorting to sneaking down at night and sneaking food out! Cheeky beggars. I put a lock on the cupboard, problem solved! :D

    Ok, so I have a giant glass pumpkin candy jar that I fill with Corn Candy every year. I don’t know why I do it, my kids aren’t allowed to have candy. Hmm, must be because I LOVE them. However, by the end of October I am sick of them and ready for some candy bars. Sounds like you have the PERFECT solution to my corn candy overload.

      I made this recipe and took it to work. I also made a batch to take to my kids’ school. Every single person that tries this says, “Oh. Peanut Butter Fudge.” And I have to agree. Other than the name, I would never have guessed these have anything to do with Butterfingers. I followed the recipe and simply taste a sweet, peanut butter flavor. Not bad, but definitely not Butterfingers. :(

    This looks delicious! And, confession, you were not the only one to suck off all the chocolate before eating the peanutty goodness.

    I love your site and enjoy your sence of humor. not too many people make this exciting and fun as you have! Remember you can eat like this when you are young but Watch Out, it will catch you in the fat trap in the END! Making the Oatmeal Wh-Chocolate Puddin Cookies NOW and they smell amazing. My hubby’s favorite cookie is Puddin cookies I have made since we were married (28 yrs.), so with your recipe I am using just the same as for mine, instant vanilla pudding. We are Crazy for oatmeal in this house(buy it in bulk 2- 10# bags) and rairly use quick oats only Old Fashion, so we will see how they turn out. Also, I use Organic Coconut for the butter, yummmm, my front door is locked but you can still smell the Vanilla as it doesn’t bake out or freeze out! (vanilla is the same as my Gma used) Thanks again for the recipe, i will let you know what the scales tell me in a few days, LOL :D

      Oh, I know! The fat trap is already here. That’s why I workout 1+ hours at least 6 days a week!

    Make sure you check the ingredients list on the back of the white chocolate chips. Not all (most) companies use actual coco beans in their white chocolate. Ghiradelli’s included!

    I was not thrilled, or even happy with this. I mean, it’s fine, but that’s it. It’s not really good and it definitely doesn’t taste like Butterfinger to me. I’m so disappointed in this. I was really looking forward to Butterfinger fudge and was teasing all my friends about it. Looks like I’ll have to eat crow on this one :(

      I’m so sorry you didn’t like it El! Is it the texture or the flavor? I know that this has more of a fudge texture than a Butterfinger one. Every time I’ve made it everyone has loved it! :(

        It’s the flavor. It tastes like plastic peanut butter. That gross chemical plastic taste from the candy corn is very apparent in it, and the only flavor I get is peanut butter. I love peanut butter but without an essence of plastic lingering through it.

    I tried this today. The recipe said it was soft, but mine is really hard to cut. It’s more like caramel than fudge. What did i do wrong??

      The only thing I can think is that the candy corn might be to blame. I have a feeling that older candy corn (or different brands) might perform differently. Is it that hard at room temperature?

        I had it out of the fridge for about 20 mins before i cut it. Maybe that want long enough. Or it could be the brand. It’s really hard to find candy corn now that Halloween is over! So i took what i could get. Thanks for the input! :)

    I just made these tonight and sprinkled chocolate chips on top. I followed the recipe exactly but it just tastes like regular PB fudge dipped in chocolate to me. :( I wish I knew what I did wrong.

      It might just be a taste thing Laura. For me the fudge had more of a chewy texture, a cross between a butterfinger and fudge. That, with the peanut butter flavor, made it more reminiscent of a candy bar. I guess everyone tastes things differently!
