I really do like butterfingers, bars and balls. This was quick, easy and tasty. My grandson has a sweet tooth and came back for seconds.

When I make these cupcakes, I use a snack cake mix, and my 3 year old does not like icing so I use non dairy topping and store them in the fridge. Great recipe.

Great Idea

This recipe is very simple, yet it tastes great. You can change the type of candy bar you want to use also. A great quick treat for kids.

I LOVE Butterfinger candy bars, but because of weak teeth, I have a hard time with them sometimes. I can't believe I never thought of doing this before! Thank you, thank you for the lightbulb moment!

Simply delicious
