Ingredients

  • 3 cups candy corn
  • 1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 2 cups chocolate candy melts for dipping

Instructions

  • Place the candy corn in a large bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and return to microwave. Continue heating for 30 seconds and then stirring until it is completely melted.
  • Stir in the peanut butter. The heat from the candy corn should melt the peanut butter, but if not return to the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir to combine.
  • Spread the mixture into an 8x8 baking dish lined with parchment paper. Smooth it out evenly in the pan. Let cool for one hour and then use a sharp knife to slice into bars.
  • Melt the chocolate bark in the microwave according to package directions.
  • Carefully dip the candy bars into the melted chocolate and turn to coat.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and wait for the chocolate to set, 2 hours at room temperature or an hour in the fridge.
  • Store at room temperature for a chewy texture or in the fridge for a more crisp texture.

Notes

You can use chocolate chips or chocolate bark in place of the candy melts, but we like the consistency of the candy melts best.
