Homemade Butterfinger Candies (from leftover Candy Corn!)

Remember when I posted the recipe for homemade Butterfinger style candybars right after Hallowen, but I said I was trying to do something different with them and said I would post it for Christmas?  Well, this is it!  Because I decided to roll it out and cut the candies out instead of slicing.  After covering them in chocolate I froze them in the deep freeze and... here they are!  Just in time to jump on our Christmas Goody trays.

Homemade Butterfinger Candies

3 c candy corn candies
1 1/2 c peanut butter (I used creamy)
1 c crushed flake cereal (I had grape nut flakes on hand)
12-16 oz. chocolate for melting and dipping

Basically just melt the candies in a microwave safe bowl.  About a minute, stir, and another 30 seconds if they aren't warm enough to melt yet.  Then add your peanut butter and cereal.  Press into a lined or greased 8X8 pan and press.  Chill about 40 minutes and slice with a knife or pizza cutter into the shapes you want.  I refrigerated mine overnight because I was busy.  I then had a heck of a time cutting them (rock hard!) until I warmed them up in the microwave just a bit.  You can slice them however you wish (cubes, patties, etc.)   Melt your chocolate and dip each candy.  Let set up to harden and serve.
