Candy Corn Peanut Butter Bars for Halloween

Today is Halloween, and this year, I actually organised myself for the occasion by making something.  My choice of recipe was governed by one ingredient - candy corn.  You see, I had a massive bag of candy corn, which I really don't like much, but which I didn't want to waste.  Cue a Google search, and I found a recipe for candy corn peanut butter bars that only needs three ingredients, including candy corn.  Perfect!  And they really do taste like Butterfingers, as the recipe suggests.

To make these is simple - melt three cups of candy corn in the microwave, add 1 1/2 cups peanut butter, mix until blended, spread evenly into a lined 8" square cake tin, score the bar shapes while they are still warm (trust me, you can't cut it once it's set), and wait for it to set.  Then separate out the bars along the scores, dip in 200g melted dark chocolate, leave to dry on baking paper (or put in the fridge to set them more firmly), and presto - you have candy corn peanut butter bars.

They are perfect for Halloween with their bright orange coloured filling.

To those who celebrate it, Happy Halloween!
