These healthier Butterfingers are made with only six simple ingredients. They’re crunchy, peanut-buttery and taste like the real deal.


  • 1 1/2 cups organic corn flakes
  • 3/4 cup drippy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon molasses (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Crush cornflakes: Place cornflakes in a small lunch-size plastic bag and crush into small pieces.
  2. Heat peanut butter: Add peanut butter, maple syrup and molasses (if using) to a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Heat, while stirring until the mixture is combined. Don’t overheat or you’ll risk scorching the peanut butter.
  3. Once well combined, remove from heat and stir in crushed corn flakes.
  4. Spoon coated cornflakes into a silicone ice cube tray, filling each cavity about halfway.
  5. Place ice cube tray in the freezer for bites to harden for at least 2 hours.
  6. Melt chocolate: Once bites have hardened, place chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each. It shouldn’t take longer than 1-2 minutes total for the chocolate to melt.
  7. Pop bites out of the tray and place on platter lined with parchment. Dip/coat each into the melted chocolate, one at a time. Use a spoon to coat until completely covered. Place chocolate covered candy back on the platter lined with parchment. Repeat until all pieces are coated.
  8. Freeze: Place bites back into the freezer to let the chocolate harden and enjoy!
  9. Storage: Bites keep best stored in the freezer in an airtight container. They should last 1-2 months. Enjoy straight from the freezer.


  • If you don’t have a silicone ice cube tray you can simply spread the mixture evenly over a parchment lined baking sheet. Let set in the freezer, chop into small squares and then dip each in chocolate as described above.
