Test Kitchen Tip

For a little panache, if desired, drizzle bars with white chocolate.


Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with foil.

Heat candy corn and peanut butter in a saucepan over medium until candy corn melts and mixture is smooth, 5 minutes, whisking often.

Stir in corn flakes; spoon mixture into prepared pan, pressing into corners and smoothing top. Cover candy corn mixture with plastic wrap; chill at least 1 hour. Turn out candy corn mixture onto a cutting board; remove foil and cut into 16 bars.

Microwave chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl on high power for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat 3 times, stirring between each until chocolate is almost melted; stir until smooth.

Dip bars into chocolate, one at time, covering all sides; lift bars out with a fork allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Place bars on a parchment-lined baking sheet until set.
