Twitter is a wonderful place for gluten-free and food allergy or other food issue people. I have “met” so many cool people there that I hope to meet in real life someday.
One of them is Brittany Angell of Real Sustenance.
She tweeted about a Butterfinger recipe she created, which immediately drew my attention. I miss them SO much.
I bought myself a candy thermometer and the (few) ingredients I was missing, and gave it a shot. I LOVE this candy, and I have lost track of the number of times I’ve made it.
I put “finished” in quotation marks because I haven’t actually broken the candy into pieces, you can see that I was…impatient, and wanted the peanutbuttery goodness before it cooled all the way. This is also my stopping point. I know I’m supposed to dip it in chocolate, and I know they’re supposed to be thicker, like Butterfingers are, but I love them just like this. Seriously, so so good, and super easy. Brittany has several little alternate suggestions, which is awesome.
As you can see, I use crunchy peanut butter (Adams brand), and I use agave nectar (which I buy at Costco).
MUCH easier than you think it’s going to be! Try it! You won’t be sorry.
