For the Butterfinger Balls:

  • 10 Fun Size Butterfinger candy bars
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt

For Coating:

  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening (optional, for a smoother coating)


Step 1: Prepare the Butterfinger Filling

  1. Unwrap the Fun Size Butterfinger candy bars and place them in a zip-top bag. Use a rolling pin or the back of a spoon to crush them into small pieces.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the crushed Butterfinger candy bars, creamy peanut butter, softened unsalted butter, powdered sugar, pure vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Stir the mixture until it’s well combined and forms a dough-like consistency.

Step 2: Shape the Balls

  1. Take small portions of the mixture and roll them into bite-sized balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Once all the balls are shaped, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm them up.

Step 3: Prepare the Chocolate Coating

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can add vegetable shortening to the chocolate if you prefer a smoother and shinier coating.
  2. Heat the chocolate in 20-30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each interval until it’s completely melted and smooth.

Step 4: Coat the Butterfinger Balls

  1. Using a fork or a toothpick, dip each chilled Butterfinger ball into the melted chocolate to coat it evenly.
  2. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off, and then place the coated ball back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 5: Set and Serve

  1. Let the coated Butterfinger Balls set at room temperature until the chocolate coating is firm.

Step 6: Enjoy!

  1. Serve your Butterfinger Balls as a delightful dessert or share them with friends and family. These crunchy, creamy delights are sure to be a hit.
