So picture this. Halloween with four siblings.

Sometimes we’d go our separate ways – into the smoky air, and roaming the streets of Mooney Mountain. Sometimes we’d go altogether, or as two and two, and my poor little sister with parents or grandparents. Sometimes we’d have fevers or colds and thick parkas over our costumes, and sometimes it would be warm enough to wear a Snow White dress with no jacket.

Sometimes, some things don’t change at all:

No matter when the night started, or how, and no matter how it went, we’d all five arrive back at home by Halloween “curfew”. Then we’d all gather in my bedroom, the largest and the most private, and we’d dump out our pillowcases of candy to have the biggest candy trade known to Mooney Mountain. It was fierce and fun, and often lasted an hour. Some siblings wanted the non-chocolate, and some wanted the peanut butter cups. It varied by ages and stages, but I can tell you that the rare gem of a BUTTERFINGER® would often be placed back into the pillowcase in a powerful message of, “NO TRADES.”

In the last few months, I have grown obsessed with BUTTERFINGER® Peanut Butter Cup Minis. I love candy in layers. I see them at Walmart often, so for the weekend I decided it was time to create a recipe for Halloween with them.

As you can probably tell, we have Halloween festivities on the brain. We’ll be doing downtown trick-or-treating for a couple of hours, then an outdoor birthday party, then a parade, and then neighborhood trick-or-treating. I’m actually tired just thinking about it, but also excited because I have the perfect snack/dessert to bring. I have always loved the classic five layer magic bar recipe – using graham cracker crumbs, butter, sweetened condensed milk and whatever toppings you want – but I decided they needed a little extra kick with BUTTERFINGER® Peanut Butter Cup Minis and assorted candy corn.

Whether you’re hosting a party, attending one, trick-or-treating or heading out to a special function – anywhere you need a sweet treat to bring – BUTTERFINGER® is the perfect Halloween solution for recipes and candy dishes.

Layer bars are very versatile, and most flavor combinations go well together with sweets, so I was confident that the peanut butter cup minis would be really good as a layer in the magic bars. I added the candy corn for a festive flair, and because both of my kids love candy corn. For me personally, the peanut butter cup minis were the star of the show. They added a really special element of flavor to the final result, with just enough crunch. I loved the consistency.

  1. My husband is crazy over Butterfingers! Like, CRAZY crazy. He does not share at all! I love your Halloween photos! I can’t remember doing trick or treating back when I was a kid. Tsk

  2. Layer bars are a Christmas tradition at my house…love the Halloween twist! Your trick or treating schedule definitely sounds exhausting. It’s hard to believe that the school festivities start in just a few hours or us!

    • And three of us are stone-cold sick. So I think Halloween will be a stretch this year, which is sad. I generally have much more stamina, though.
      How can I get better before tomorrow??

  3. OMG these magic bars are pretty much a combination of all of my favorite things. OM NOM NOM. I friggin heart Butterfingers SO MUCH. My neighbor was telling me this morning she’s already freaking out about all the candy the kids are going to bring in and she’s thinking of ways to steal it. What a grump. LOL.

    These pictures of you and your siblings are way too friggin cute 🙂 XOXO and happy Halloween!!!

  4. Butterfinger is tied in second place with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups around here. Numero uno is the most excellent Crunchie bar! These bars look amazing…thanks for sharing!

  5. How have I not heard of Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups? I’m clearly not paying enough attention in the candy aisle. Getting some tomorrow. And your recipe looks delicious! Have a fun Halloween!

  6. That is so awesome!! Wish I can eat them now!! 😀 And looks like you’ve got a busy Haloween weekend. I’m supposed to go out but Reiko’s been sick and is still recovering. Hope you enjoy!

    • We’ve all been sick too! Ridiculously! And Cassidy and Des had to cut out of Halloween early because of it. Not cool. I think mine might be leaving, finally. It’s been a long week.

  7. I’very never heard of those, but they sound yummy☺ I love the Ibotta app. Especially since they added rebates for non-brand items like produce.

    • I went to my friend’s party and she was giving out the big Butterfinger cups and I ate a lot and she said it was ok because they had plenty of candy.
      And.. they ran out later that night!
      Oops.

  8. Well I already had a sweet tooth when I came. 😉 I’m going to go see if there’s a Butterfinger in the Halloween candy. 🙂
