When I was a kid, nobody told me how much candy I could or couldn’t eat. Full size candy bars were a regular part of my life. Sometimes I wish I could go back to those carefree days – I wish we could all just eat a candy bar without thinking about how it’s compromising our immune systems.

Too late for that.

But DAMN. I miss candy! Sometimes my cravings get the best of me and next thing you know I’m stirring a bubbling mixture of corn syrup and cane juice… sweet, sweet alchemy.

I’m not trying to claim that homemade Butterfingers are any healthier than the store bought stuff, but what I will say is that making them is fun. Plus, you can cut out unnecessary ingredients like artificial flavors and colors. Keep it (a little more) real!

I accidentally ate this for breakfast the day after I made it! Sometimes you gotta just do what you gotta do…
