“Sometimes I am embarrassed to tell people how easy this delicious candy is to make. It tastes very much like a famous crunchy peanut candy bar, and can be made in about 10 minutes (total time)! I like to buy a lot candy corn right after Halloween when it is on sale so it can be a very inexpensive candy to make. Sometimes I drizzle some melted milk chocolate on top of the semisweet chocolate after it's cooled just for decoration.” - by The Pharmcook
Original recipe yields 24 pieces
- Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper.
- Place candy corn in a microwave-safe bowl (not plastic) and heat in several 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until candy corn is warm, melted, and smooth.
- Stir peanut butter into melted candy corn until thoroughly combined; transfer candy to the prepared pan, pressing and smoothing the candy into the corners of the pan.
- Place chocolate chips and vegetable shortening into the top of a double boiler set over simmering water. Heat the chocolate, stirring constantly, until just warm, melted, and smooth. Spread warm chocolate over the peanut candy. Chill in refrigerator until candy is set, at least 30 minutes, before cutting into squares.

"What a sticky fun recipe! The melted candy corn can be a challenge to stir but the end product is fantastic! I am not a candy corn fan at all but my husband loves the candy bar so I gave these a whirl..." See more. They turned out great! My husband said they were "extremely good" and "better than a Butterfinger." The taste is dead on with a slightly different texture which we like because it doesn't stick to your teeth."
"Delicious! My husband, who hates candy corn, absolutely died when we tried these! He ate half the pan in the first 20 minutes after they were ready. Only thing I would change is the amount of candy..." See more corn. I would add an extra half cup. The candy corn is what makes it all stick together, and I felt it needed a little more sticky-ness, they were just a little crumbly. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!"
