The flavor of Butterfinger....the creaminess of fudge! A match made in heaven!!
*Note: I updated the photos and recipe for this by dipping the individual pieces of fudge in melted chocolate. The result is even better than the original! Enjoy!!
It was about 9:00 and Ellia was out of bed for the third time in an hour, telling us she couldn't fall asleep because of Greta. (A pretty typical complaint, since they share a bedroom and are constantly keeping one another awake...) So I headed upstairs to find Greta, in bed, crying, afraid to go to sleep because she was convinced she would have a bad dream. So we talked, and I snuggled her, and then I told her I really hoped she'd have only GOOD dreams....like the ones I had when I was a kid!
I still remember my favorite childhood dreams, and I asked Greta if she wanted to hear them. Of course she did....so I told her the one where Cabbage Patch Kids were all over our sidewalk when I woke up in the morning....and they were all mine to keep (!) And the one where I was on the school bus and I saw some money on the ground....and it turned out the entire bus was full of money and I was the only one collecting it (!) And then there was the one where it was raining candy......!
No-Bake Butterfinger Fudge
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
2 sticks butter
5 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 1/2 c. dry milk
1 (10 oz.) bag Butterfinger bites, finely crushed
2 tsp. vanilla
1 regular size Butterfinger candy bar, finely crushed
1 (16 oz.) package chocolate Candiquik (can substitute 16 oz. chocolate chips melted with 1 Tbsp. shortening)
*Note: I updated this recipe by adding the melted chocolate (step 5). For the original recipe, simply cut and serve instead of dipping in chocolate :)
1. Bring cream cheese and butter to room temperature.
2. Add first 6 ingredients to a large bowl and mix with hands until thoroughly combined.
3. Press into buttered 9x13 inch pan.
4. Top with additional Butterfinger candy bar.
5. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares. Melt chocolate Candiquik and dip fudge squares into it; set on wax paper to harden.
6. Store in refrigerator.
