Three Ingredient Mock Butterfinger Bars

Yes, this recipe has a short and somewhat strange ingredient list, but trust me, you’re in for a treat!  Our friends recently brought us a plate of Christmas goodies and these were the family favorite.  I took one bite and thought, “These taste like Butterfingers!”

3 Ingredient Mock Butterfinger Bars
I’m not a huge fan of Butterfingers, but I really liked these.  After closer examination I determined (to my surprise) that they were made from Wheat Thins crackers. A quick search of the Internet confirmed that there were indeed recipes out there for mock Butterfingers made from Wheat Thins.

If you’ve ever had those Ritz crackers filled with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate, these are similar (and I think, even better). I think they taste best after sitting overnight, so the crackers and peanut butter have time to mingle.

You can also use white chocolate, or a combination, and add some holiday sprinkles or drizzled chocolate to dress them up a bit.  There are only a few Christmas treats that I must make every year, and this one is going on the list!
