Too Many Butterfingers?

If you have kids, and they go trick-or-treating, how many Butterfingers candy bars do you see in those bags?
Lots....and well, as long as there are so many, you have to sneak one here and there. Or you can be like my household where we get anywhere between 350-400 kids on Halloween. We try to have enough candy to give out. But there is always an ample amount left over. I usually take that extra candy to work the day after Halloween so it isn't singing our names behind the cupboard doors.

But what else can you do with those left over Butterfingers? This is amazingly easy! I always have a couple cake mixes in the pantry for a quick way to make a dessert when I need one.

This recipe starts with a yellow cake mix. You need Butterfingers candy bars and some frosting. Make your own, or buy a can of frosting. Whatever you like. Send these to school for a special class treat or take them to work. OR, eat them all yourself! :-) The best part is that you got to use of some of those Butterfingers!!
Butterfingers Cupcakes
1 18.25 box yellow cake mix (or you can use chocolate)
3 2.1- oz. Butterfingers candy bars , chopped and divided (if you have those little bars, use the equivalent)

  1. What a great way to use the candy. We live on a very steep hill, so we rarely get trick or treaters. I must admit I miss it.

  5. Linda... What a creative way to use Butterfingers! Which I must say is one of my favorite candy bars. I am absolutely going to try these cupcakes. Thanks...

  6. I think Butterfingers are my favorite Halloween candy. Can you too much Buttefingers? I think not. I will have to try those - yummy Linda!

    I hate to admit that I don't know what Butterfingers is like.
