DELISHES WHITE CHOCOLATE BUTTERFINGER BARS
Tasty, chocolatey Butterfinger bars…but better because it’s healthy!
Inspired by a recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/wprm_print/48682)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tbsp regular or blackstrap molasses
- 3 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup unsweetened peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups of a cornflake and wheat flake cereal mix
- 1/8 tsp salt, plus a little extra if using unsalted peanut butter
- optional topping: 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
- Combine the maple syrup, molasses, and brown sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil on medium heat.
- While stirring constantly, boil for about a minute and remove from heat.
- Add in the peanut butter and salt and stir until it makes a paste.
- Then add the cereal to the peanut butter and salt mixture.
- Stir the cereal very well to evenly coat with the paste. And don’t worry, it is perfectly normal to partially crush the cereal flakes as you stir.
- Line an 8×8 pan with wax or parchment paper. You can also grease the pan very well.
- Press the cereal mixture into an 8×8 pan and freeze until completely hardened.
- While partially frozen, cut cereal mixture into bars. You can also thaw the cereal mixture a little before cutting.
- You can cover the bars with chocolate at any time, either before or after cutting them.
- Melt the white chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. (You can use any chocolate chip here)
- Spread the melted chocolate chips over the bars with a spatula and re-freeze to harden. Store in the freezer for optimum “Butterfinger Crunch.”
