Today I thought I would share one of our favorite family treats – Homemade Butterfinger Bites.
I usually whip up a big batch of these around the holidays . First, I like to have a variety of treats available for all my family and friends. Second, I typically only make them during the holidays because if they are at my house…I will eat them – ALL of them!
A friend of mine came over not too long ago and had a little bowl full of goodies. She was very excited to give me a batch of her “famous” Butterfinger candy. I had to giggle as it was the same thing that I refer to as Butterfinger Bites. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that these babies have been around for forever – so I just thanked her for that famous recipe of hers and proceeded to snack away!
I was nice and shared my little bowl of goodies with my husband and kids. She only brought a handful of the candies and I have had a hankering for them ever since. Well, I figured that it would be a good idea to share the recipe with you guys. I mean that would be the nice thing to do, right? It really had nothing to do with the fact that I just NEEDED to have these this week – tee hee.
I figured it was also good timing as I could eat a few then put them out at our party we have planned this weekend. So, I get my treat but I’ll have folks help me eat them so I don’t overindulge.
I guess the nice thing about this recipe is that you can make as few or as many as you’d like. Calling this a recipe may be a stretch as it’s really just an assembly of ingredients. But if you take these to a party, I guarantee that you’ll come back with an empty dish. You can even call them your “famous” recipe 😉
- Big Cheez -It Crackers
- Creamy Peanut Butter (try Peter Pan Honey Roast - yum!)
- Chocolate Almond Bark
- Spread a dollop of peanut butter on a cracker then top with another cracker to make a sandwich. Do this until you finish the box (or make as many as you'd like)
- Follow the package instructions to melt the chocolate almond bark.
- Dip each mini cracker sandwich into the chocolate, shaking off any excess chocolate.
- Place the dipped cracker on wax paper.
- Allow the chocolate to harden and serve!
