THREE INGREDIENT MOCK BUTTERFINGER BARS — Made with Wheat Thins, peanut butter and chocolate, these tasty treats are reminiscent of Butterfinger candy bars.

Three Ingredient Mock Butterfinger Bars

Our friends recently brought us a plate of Christmas goodies and these Three Ingredient Mock Butterfinger Bars were the family favorite.

Yes, this recipe has a short and somewhat strange ingredient list, but trust me, you’re in for a treat!

I’m not a huge fan of Butterfinger candy bars, but I really liked these. When our friends brought them as part of their holiday cookie tray, I had to figure out what was in the recipe!

I determined (to my surprise), that they were made from Wheat Thins crackers, peanut butter, and chocolate. A quick search of the Internet confirmed that there were indeed recipes out there for mock Butterfingers made from Wheat Thins.

I like to add some sprinkles during the holidays. Which would technically be four ingredients, so that’s totally optional!

If you’ve ever had those Ritz crackers filled with peanut butter and dipped in chocolate, these are similar (and in my opinion, even better).

I think they taste best after sitting overnight, so the crackers and peanut butter have time to mingle. But I usually can’t resist sampling a handful as soon as the chocolate sets.

You can also use white chocolate, or make some of each kind. They’re all delicious, no matter what kind of chocolate you use.

There are only a few Christmas treats that I must make every year, and my family all agrees, these easy chocolate and peanut butter treats are a must make!

  15. I could not help but to ask the customer in front of me at a Walmart check out line why she was purchasing so many boxes of wheat thins…..she shared the cracker recipe with me. I researched the recipe on line and there it is—–that easy recipe! Family cookie baking day is next week and this will be my new addition for 2014.
