I made these Easy No-Bake Butterfinger Bites recently on Instagram and they were so delicious, I just thought they deserved their own spot here too! 

Easy No-Bake Butterfinger Bites

I am always trying to think of easy sweets to include in the girls’ lunchboxes or just to have on hand when we are looking for a sweet treat. I love making simple bites like these to keep on hand in my fridge or freezer. I’ve made a few different types of sweet bites before but wanted to take the beloved flavors of a Butterfinger and make those into a simple, at-home treat. And let me just tell y’all, I nailed it. 

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Corn Flakes
  • Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Honey
  • Dark Chocolate Chips (I use Hu Gems to keep these bites dairy-free!)
  • Coconut Oil
  • Maldon or other Flaky Salt

Step One: Crush the Corn Flakes

After you line a sheet pan with parchment paper, you’ll start making the base of your bites. I typically used rice crispies in bites like this but swapped to crushed corn flakes and WOW, I may never go back. They give a delicious crunch and really mimic the texture of a Butterfinger.

Step Two: Finish Your Base

Add your crushed corn flakes to a large bowl then add the peanut butter and honey. This works as the perfect bind for the base of your bite!

Step Three: Roll Your Bites

Next, you’ll roll your base into about 12 bites. If you’re having issues rolling or it is sticking to your hands too much, I’d recommend dampening your hands slightly. This usually helps me! Once rolled, add to the prepared baking sheet.

Step 4: Melt the Chocolate

Next, you’ll add your chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 20-second increments until melted and smooth. It’s important to do this in increments so your chocolate doesn’t burn!

Step 5: Assemble, Cool, then Enjoy Your Easy No-Bake Butterfinger Bites

And finally, you’ll roll each bite in the melted chocolate then place them back onto your sheet pan and top with flaky salt. Then, the hardest part — waiting for the chocolate to harden! You’ll want to put these in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Corn Flakes: If your mixture seems a little wet due to your type of peanut butter, add extra corn flakes.

    These are so yummy & also so easy! My adult children absolutely LOVED these and have been asking again & again for them. Planning on making them as a wedding dessert!

    These are delicious! It was a great easy recipe to make with my toddler. Even made them while baby wearing. I just used a cookie scoop and drizzled the chocolate on top.

    These are soooo yummy! I made them for my adult children and they got rave reviews from all!

    Here’s a tip: I warmed (in micro) the honey & peanut butter in a separate bowl first, then added to the flakes. This made mixing with the flakes much easier…. think rice crispie treats! I also used bran flakes & added some Hemp hearts just to fool myself into believing that might make this healthier. Ha-Ha!

    I will definitely make these again! The kids will demand them! 🙂

    This is a great recipe. I’ve made it a few times until I realize me hating cornflakes was.not a childhood thing. I switched up to rice krispies or Raisin Bran (minus the raisins, of course)
