Halloween treats and money saving tips!

There are so many options we have to celebrate Halloween! From trick or treating and festivals to parties and baking together.

As a family, we enjoy baking together. Last year my son and I made homemade Butterfinger Candy and it has since became a favorite of my husband. We got the recipe from a Taste of Home magazine, but I would love to share it with you to try this Halloween (with a few changes made by me, of course).

A money saving tip: is a website where you can buy and sell gift cards. We can use this site to help us save money when shopping for ingredients to make our Halloween treats!

Here are links to the pages where you can find many gift cards to buy and sell:

White Chocolate Butterfingers

  • 3 cups candy corns
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, creamy
  • 1, 14 oz. bag of white candy melts (about 2.5 cups)
  • Jimmies, optional

Line an 8x8 baking dish with no-stick foil.
In microwave safe bowl, melt candy corns in 30 second intervals, stirring between each until melted. Stir in peanut butter. Mix until smooth.
Pour into prepared baking dish.
Flatten with spatula.
Let cool and firm up for about 1 hour.
Remove candy from baking dish by pulling out by foil ends.
Cut into 1 inch bars.
Melt candy melts in a double broiler until melted. (If you do not have one, make one. Take a glass bowl that will fit on top of a pat without falling in. Boil water in the pot on the stove and place bowl with candy melts on top. Stir until melted.)
Line cookie sheet with no-stick foil.
Spread melted candy melts over each bar with a butter knife.
Place on prepared cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with jimmies.
Serve or store in an airtight container.
