Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups crushed Butterfinger candy bars (about 8 regular-sized bars)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)

Instructions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the creamy peanut butter and softened butter. Mix until well combined.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar to the peanut butter and butter mixture, mixing well after each addition.
  3. Stir in the crushed Butterfinger candy bars, vanilla extract, and salt (if using). Mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined, and you have a dough-like consistency.
  4. Shape the mixture into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the balls to firm up.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips, stirring frequently until smooth.
  6. Using a fork or toothpick, dip each peanut butter ball into the melted chocolate, coating it evenly. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
  7. Place the chocolate-coated balls back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Once all the balls are coated, return the baking sheet to the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to set.
  9. Once the chocolate has hardened, transfer the Butterfinger Balls to an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
