Butterfinger Buckeye Balls, often known as Butterfinger Balls, are extremely addictive. Ingredients include peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, graham crackers, chopped Butterfingers, butter, and melted chocolate. Fantastic for any celebrations, barbecues, and as presents.
These Butterfinger Balls are perfect for any football viewing party or holiday celebration. The combination of Butterfingers and peanut butter is one of my all-time weak spots. In other words, I have no self-control over them! They’re like Buckeye Balls with more kicks to them!
In these bite-sized treats, I used crunchy peanut butter. If you want a smoother texture and don’t care for peanut “chunks,” go for the creamy variety. Although, I prefer mine with chunks.
These Butterfinger Balls taste great either warm or cold and can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container until ready to serve.
You can even sprinkle these Butterfinger Balls with your favorite sprinkle colors to suit the occasion!
To Make Butterfinger Balls
Putting together these sweet balls requires no effort.
What you need:
Graham cracker crumbs: Or crush up the crackers on your own.
Butterfinger bars: Crushed to use for mixing and garnish.
Butter: Make sure to use softened unsalted butter. Margarine is not an option as it will make an oil texture.
Crunchy peanut butter: I love crunchy peanut butter for that extra crunch. But you can replace it with creamy peanut butter if desired.
Chocolate almond bark or chocolate candy coating: Creates a smooth finish. But you are welcome to swap it with chocolate chips or chocolate bars. Simply temper the chocolate to make sure the outside of the balls is set up.
To make this recipe gluten-free (you should use these ingredients instead):
- Use gluten-free Graham cracker crumbs. Other gluten-free alternatives are chocolate wafers if you want something dark or chocolatey or vanilla wafers for something more subtle.
- The majority of Butterfinger products are free of gluten. But keep in mind that the Butterfinger Crisp contains gluten.
