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!

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

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!

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.

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

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?
