I was in Wal-Mart the other day and they had a huge baking display in the middle of the main aisle. It was filled with all sorts of seasonal items, most of which had a pumpkin spice component. Now, I must admit that I have a HUGE soft spot for pumpkin spice so I threw caution to the wind and picked up virtually one of everything. Ssssshhhh, don’t tell my husband, okay?
Well, the problem is that I picked up these goodies but didn’t have a specific plan. Nope, I just grabbed them and thought, “Oh, I’ll think of something”. The first items I used were Jell-O pumpkin spice instant pudding & Coffee Mate Pumpkin Spice Creamer to make some Instant Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino Mix that I must admit is pretty darn tasty. Then, I made some Soft Ginger Cookies with Hershey Kisses that used Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses. Well, today, I’m sharing my candy experiment, Pumpkin Spice Butterfingers, which actually turned out fabulously, if I do say so myself.
You are going to be so amazed at how easy these are to make. I took my Three Ingredient Butterfingers recipe and adapted it for the season with these two goodies.
Are you doing a double take? Yup, I found Pumpkin Spice Candy corn at Wal-Mart. See, I told you that there were a TON of pumpkin spiced treats these days! Also, rather than using peanut butter, I thought Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter would enhance the pumpkin spice flavors in this candy corn. When I measured out these two ingredients, I was giddy with joy…..aren’t they gorgeous?
Well, after I made the butterfinger “filling”, I dipped the bars into chocolate. Don’t these look good?
Are you drooling yet? Don’t they look absolutely amazing? My youngest LOVED them.
Oh, and take a peek at the center. The texture and crunch of a Butterfinger with the seasonal yumminess of pumpkin pie spice. They are so easy and quick to make. Have I enticed you yet? Are you ready for the recipe?
