Butterfinger Balls


These delightful balls of goodness are like a peanut butter ball (or Buckeye) with crushed Butterfinger candies in them!

How could anyone say no to them? 

A little time consuming to roll into balls, but an easy recipe to make to add to your holiday. 

I loved dipping them in white almond bark (tinted green) and shaping them into a Christmas tree on a platter for a fun presentation.

I got the original recipe from Plain Chicken, but the batch made A LOT!
She said it would make 3 - 4 dozen and I just wanted fewer, and made them
smaller (still about the size of a walnut) because they are rich, so do your thing...this recipe is easily doubled for a bunch more! 

May you and yours enjoy a SWEET CHRISTmas season!


1-3/4 c. powdered sugar
1-1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
3 Butterfinger bars (1.9 ozs. each), crushed
1/2 c. + 2 Tb. butter, melted
3/4 c. crunchy peanut butter (or creamy)
12 ozs. chocolate almond bark or chocolate candy coating (discs)

Colored sprinkles, optional

In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, graham cracker crumbs and Butterfinger pieces; set aside.

In medium glass bowl; combine melted butter and peanut butter until smooth.
Add to crumb mixture and stir until blended. Shape into walnut-sized balls, place
on wax paper lined cookie sheet; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Melt chocolate according to package directions; dip chilled balls into chocolate,
placing them back onto the waxed paper.  Sprinkle with holiday sprinkles if desired.

Refrigerate any leftovers.
Yield: about 3 dozen treats
