Copy Cat Butterfinger Candy Bars
I'm not sure I would call this a Pinterest Fail, but it was pretty close.... I followed the recipe exactly, but some of my candy corn was really old, so I don't know if that mattered or not... I probably won't try again any time soon to find out either.
However, the taste was pretty close to copying a Butterfinger candy bar. To quote my eight year old, "It almost tastes like a Butterfinger, Mom. You did a pretty good job..."
Because my mixture didn't turn out quite right, it was really hard to cover in chocolate without getting little pieces of the inside stuck on the outside of the chocolate.
My two year old loved eating my rejects - I mean, they were all rejects, but he loved them.
Here's the recipe in case you want to try. Let me know how they turn out for you.
