Good bye Halloween! Hello Holidays! I think it’s time to go into the holiday season, what about you? Every store is getting ready for Christmas and I didn’t even get a chance to buy all the Halloween candy up. The day after Halloween is a tradition all the candy is on sale and I get to buy as much as I can. I started with candy corn and ended with peanut butter!
I know some of you are still eating that Halloween candy and if you have bags of candy corn (like I do) I have a treat for you! Candy corn butter is going down and all you need is a food processor and a few ingredients. It’s basically butterfinger in a jar that you can eat anytime you have a craving for butterfinger without the chocolate. This is neat gift for all your friends and family and a great way to get rid of all that candy corn.
This recipe is tricky and took me three bags of candy corn and a couple of jars of peanut butter to get it right. You would think all you needed to do was add the peanut butter and candy corn and blend! Wrong! Pulse the candy corn until you get little pieces of candy corn. If you are tempted to blend the candy corn don’t! your food processor will over heat and you don’t want that. Creamy oily peanut butter works the best for this recipe. You can spread it on apples, celery, your favorite bread or try it in some baked goods. I love it straight out of the jar!
Candy Corn Butter Recipe:
1.5 cups candy corn

If the peanut butter and candy corn start to clump together turn off the food processor add oil and blend until the mixture becomes creamy. Store in mason jars and give as gifts.
