Peanut Free Butterfingers
4 cups Candy corn (read the labels first – some brands are not gluten-free)
1+1/2 cups Wowbutter or SunButter, creamy (or butter alternative)
1 cup corn cereal, crushed (I used corn Chex)
18 ounces dark chocolate chips (make sure the chocolate is soy and dairy free)
Yield: 64 Servings
Slightly spray an 8×8 inch metal baking pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
Place gluten-free candy corn in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave candy corn on high for 60 seconds.
Stir and microwave again in 15 second intervals, stirring each time. Repeat until candy corn is melted.
Stir in WowButter and crushed cereal. Work quickly because candy corn will firm up quickly.
Spread candy corn mixture evenly into baking pan. Chill for 20 minutes or until firm.
Cut firmed candy corn mixture into 64 pieces. Dip pieces in melted chocolate and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Chill until chocolate is set. For best results, keep chilled until ready to serve
