Butterfinger Balls are a no-bake treat blending creamy peanut butter and crunchy Butterfinger candy in chocolate-dipped balls. Simple to make, these sweets require mixing crushed Butterfinger bars with peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and powdered sugar, then chilling and coating in milk chocolate. Perfect for any occasion, they offer a delightful mix of textures and tastes. Ready in 1 hour 20 minutes, this recipe makes 24 indulgent balls.


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups crushed Butterfinger candy bars
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening


  1. In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, crushed Butterfinger candy bars, graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and powdered sugar until well combined.
  2. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and vegetable shortening. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  4. Using a fork, dip each peanut butter ball into the melted chocolate to coat thoroughly. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off before returning the balls to the parchment paper.
  5. Chill the coated balls in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
  6. Serve chilled or at room temperature.


  1. Chill Time is Crucial: Proper chilling before and after coating the balls in chocolate is essential for achieving the right texture and ensuring the chocolate sets correctly. Don’t rush these steps to ensure the best results.
  2. Consistency Matters: Achieving the right consistency for the mixture before forming the balls is key. If the mixture is too dry or too wet, adjusting with a little more powdered sugar or peanut butter can help reach the perfect texture for easy shaping.
  3. Quality Ingredients Enhance Flavor: Using high-quality peanut butter and chocolate chips can significantly impact the overall taste of your Butterfinger Balls. Opt for ingredients you enjoy on their own for a truly delectable treat.
