Candy corn is one of the essential candies for fall! It was the first Halloween candy that I noticed in stores this year. I’m not sure how they got their product placed with the school supplies, but it was there. Our favorite way to eat candy corn is to mix it with dry roasted peanuts. Someone once told me that the combination is supposed to taste like caramel apples?! I never got that, but they taste great together anyway!
A couple of years ago, a friend told me that you can make homemade Butterfinger with candy corn and peanut butter. That is when I first discovered that you can actually melt candy corn to use it in recipes. I decided to use melted candy corn to make Candy Corn Truffle Bark. The center is a mixture of melted candy corn and creamy peanut butter.
- Almond Bark: Choose vanilla or chocolate.
- Candy Corn: Thickens and sweetens the filling.
- Peanut Butter: Makes it taste like a Butterfinger. Use creamy Jif or Skippy for the best results.
- Sprinkles: Give it some additional color.
How To Make Candy Corn Truffle Bark
Melt half of the almond bark and spread in a foil-lined 9-inch square pan. Place it in the fridge to harden while preparing the filling.
Melt the candy corn in the microwave and then stir in the creamy peanut butter.
Spread the mixture over the hardened almond bark layer.
Melt the remaining almond bark in the microwave and spread it over the butter finger filling. You can top it with sprinkles if you want to, or skip them to make it more like the candy bars.
Allow the candy corn bark to set. Use the foil to lift the bars from the pan and then cut them into pieces. I cut them into triangles, but you can also cut them into squares.
Frequently Asked Questions

You can combine the melted candy corn and peanut butter by hand, but it will be harder to do since the filling is stiff. You can warm the peanut butter beforehand to make it a little easier.
Fill the dirty bowl with hot, soapy water and allow it to soak.
