Simple Butterfinger Bites


How was everyones Halloween? I hope that everyone had an amazing evening filled with minimal tricks and many TREATS. I know that I did. Halloween is one of the many nights a year you just have to indulge in the holiday. The candy is readily available and it isn't going to eat itself. Sometimes it's ok to just let go and have the milky way. Or 4 if they are fun sized, you know the rules. That is what makes Halloween so fun!

So now, Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is well on its way. It's time to adjust to the next event and keep moving forward. In my Cultural Aspects of Food class I am currently studying at the University of Utah, we had a fun assignment this last week. The assignment was to identify how food places a role in our life and how it defines our culture. We had to do so, using a video/media presentation. This type of assignment is right up my alley. I love talking about food and making videos is one of the many hobbies I have. Unfortunately, I was rushed into completing this assignment before the deadline, so it isn't as creative and professional as I would of liked. But hey, I got it in on time.

In the video, I get to talk about myself and what food really means to me. While doing so, I chose to display my love for cooking by making some homemade butterfinger bites while talking. It helped me feel more comfortable in front of the camera and gave me something to do with my hands. Why butterfingers? Well, because that was what I had in my apartment on hand. I had some left over candy corn that I hadn't used, a jar of peanut butter, and some hershey's kisses. So, if you would like, you can check out this video I created this last week for my assignment, or you can keep scrolling to the recipe!

Simple Butterfinger Bites
- 2 cups candy corn 
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 20 hershey kisses 

Pour candy corn into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 15 second intervals until melted down. Then, microwave the peanut butter until it is a liquid. Combine the two with a spoon. It will start to combine and hold together. Next, roll the filling into 1 inch balls. Place them on a non stick sheet, and place them in the freezer. Meanwhile, unwrap your kisses. In the video, I am using "Hugs" Hershey kisses because that is what I had on hand. I actually enjoyed them but milk chocolate or any you prefer would be good. Melt the chocolate down in the microwave. Remove balls and roll one by one into the chocolate, coating all sides. Place them back on the non stick sheet and into the freezer until ready to serve.
