Butterfinger Donut Holes

Butterfinger desserts: I can’t stop; I won’t stop. There was the Butterfinger cupcakes, the Butterfinger Rice Krispies Treats, the homemade Butterfingers

Let’s keep that list growing, shall we? I present! To you! Butterfinger Donut Holes!

I love how fast this recipe is. You can easily go from a clean kitchen to 20 Butterfinger donut holes in half an hour. Half an hour! These won’t even last ten minutes before being scarfed down. In the span of less than an hour these donuts could be just a mere memory.

A tasty, tasty memory.

It’s really important to include the candy corn when making Butterfinger-esque recipes. The candy corn + peanut butter combination is the secret ingredient! I’m always able to find candy corn year round in the candy aisles at the stores.

Not that it matters, I hoard candy corn after Halloween anyway. What? It stays good!

I have somehow misplaced my donut pan, as if it was a sock or the remote. I made do with a cake pops pan, which turned out to be more fun anyway. Hooray for losing everything!

These are especially delicious with a glass (or two) of milk. Make a batch (or two) and dunk a few (or all of them).

adapted from Fake Ginger

1/4 cup candy corn
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a cake pops pan.

2. Microwave candy corn in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Stir in peanut butter until smooth. Microwave again if needed.

3. Transfer candy corn/peanut butter mixture into a medium-sized bowl. Stir in sugar until completely combined. Add milk, canola oil, vanilla extract, and egg. Fold in flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring until just combined. (Don’t worry if you still have bits and pieces of candy corn in the dough.)

4. Fill donut cavities 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool before glazing.

  2. I just received an email that this donut pin had been removed from Pinterest. I pinned it from someone else, but why would they say the owner did not want this pinned and I see you have a Pin It logo?

    • Hi! Sorry about this, I’m not sure why that pin was removed. I have *no problem* with pinning my photos to Pinterest, and as you can tell, I encourage it! I’m sorry you received that email.
