We've had discussions here before about how there's really no substitute for Butterfingers, when we're avoiding all Nestle products.  It was my favorite candy bar, and I miss it.....


I think I may have found a substitute (organic no less!?).  It's got caramel so it wouldn't be a 100% sub, but the description sounds promising other than that (and I do like caramel anyway)..... I haven't ordered it yet - wondering if anyone here has had one and knows for sure?

Ooh I do like the look of that!  Thank you!

I have a recipe for Peanut-Butter-Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats that may fulfill your butterfinger craving.


It's super easy and super-yummy:


1 cup sugar

1 cup peanut butter

1 cut corn syrup (or agave nectar)


5 cups rice crispies

1 package of semi sweet chocolate chips


In a pot mix PB, Sugar, and Corn Syrup until it comes to a boil (stir contantly).


Pour rice crispies into a large mixing bowl.  Pour PB mixture over and mix.  Spread onto a cookie sheet.


Melt the chocolate chips, spread evenly over the rice krispies.


Refrigerate for 10 minutes (or more). Cut into squares (or diamonds, or whatever).




I make these in several batches and store the little portions in the freezer - they're always a hit and are perfect after they defrost for a couple of minutes.

5th avenue bars are better than butter finger (the same inside texture, but better, well...real chocolate on the outside).  There is actually a butterfinger copycat recipe online I've made before thats yummy!

Never liked butterfingers, but what I really need is a substitute baby ruth! Sneaking dd's halloween candy awoke my appetite for them and I was guilty of buying a bag a few weeks later :X

Oh my gosh, a while ago I bought some candy from my natural food store that was almost exactly like Butterfingers!  What was it called?  Peanut butter sticks or something like that?  I will try to remember to find out for you!


Edited to add:  I think this might be them!  Unless I'm remembering the wrong candy!  I might have to buy them the next time I go to the store, so I can do a taste test!  It's so hard being a lactivist, but someone's got to do it!
