Food Hack: Copy-Cat Butterfinger Bites

Food Hack: Copy-Cat Butterfinger Bites

My all time favorite chocolate bar is a Butterfinger, but I really only enjoy one or two at Halloween. There is something about waiting all year to bite into one of those that makes me happy. Does not take much. Anyway, I recently saw someone comment about copy cat butterfingers that did not involve too much work, really only 3 ingredients so I was all over it. If you want to create that amazing flavor at home you must try this combo of Cheez_Its crackers, Peanut Butter ( creamy), and chocolate discs. I hope you enjoy these Copy Cat Butterfinger Bites as much as we did. I will be curious to see what you think about the flavor in comparison to the real thing. 


Remember the Chocolate covered peanut butter sandwiches I made for Valentine’s Day? If not check those out as well, they taste like the Tagalong Girl Scout Cookie. Well basically we are doing the same thing just with a different cracker and getting a totally different taste. I love finding these food hacks. 

I thought I would try making these Fake Butterfingers with the large size Cheez_Its. Just spread some peanut butter on one and top it with another.



Then dip the entire cracker sandwich into the melted chocolate discs.

Allow to cool completely.

Then take a bite. Trust me I am sure you will not be able to eat just one. Or maybe it’s because I have no will power. Let me know what you think. 


The kids thought they were amazing and so did their friends who happened to come over and got a taste test. Good thing I ran out of Chocolate and that the friends finished my stash or I could have eaten the entire plate.
