I found this recipe over at PW's Tasty Recipes blog...
I was so excited to try them...
and they totally delivered!
16 oz candy corn
16 oz peanut butter
Melting chocolate (your favorite kind...but not choc. chips)
Melt candy corn in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, making sure to stir at each interval. When they are totally melted, add peanut butter. Note: I had to mix mine up with my hand mixer because it was so thick and sticky. Put mixture into a wax paper lined 8X8 pan. Place in freezer until set. Cut into bite sized bars and dip into melted chocolate using a fork to scrape off excess.
Personally...the dipping part was tricky but not as bad as I was expecting. They might not be pretty but they are sure tasty! The texture is almost spot on like real butterfingers and I was so shocked by this...I mean really...candy corns and peanut butter?!?...Who Knew!?
It will make quite a few bars...which is good cuz it's Taylor's favorite candy bar!

Dear fellow bloggers...thank you for always updating your blogs and keeping me in the loop...I seriously love reading all of you and I have learned things from each and every one of you!!! So...Thank you!!!
I am seriously wondering where I have been all these years...I mean this stuff is soooooo good and sooooo easy to make! I am beyond excited to whip up a ton of these for my kiddos and I am even more excited for the endless possibilities of flavors! This one is Raspberry and next up is...Caramel Apple....I mean, can you imagine...an apple layer and a caramel layer on top...rolled up...delicious goodness all in one!
Homemade Fruit Leather:
48 - 64 oz applesauce
1 small box jello - any flavor
Puree the heck out of this either in your food processor or blender. Pour out on a plastic wrap lined baking sheet (line the plastic wrap as close to edges as possible, avoid folding over the sheet...it won't melt because we are just drying out the fruit). Spread the mixture all the way to the edges making it as even as possible. I may look too thick but remember it is going to be drying in your oven and it will sort of shrink when the moisture evaporates. Bake for 6-8 hours in a 170 degree oven until no longer tacky in the middle. After it has cooled, separate from plastic wrap and put onto wax paper to cut and roll. Store in airtight container.
If the Caramel Apple works to my liking...I will totally be blogging about them!
