Yields 12

Prep time: 10 minutes | Bake time: 15 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes


  • 1-1/2 cups Cocoa Krispies
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 3 (2.1 ounce) Butterfinger candy bars, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To a food processor, add the Cocoa Krispies, oats, sugar, butter and corn syrup. Blend for about 15 seconds, and then place the crust into an 8 x 8-inch baking dish prepared with nonstick cooking spray. Press down on the crust to ensure it is well packed. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the dish from the oven, and add the chocolate morsels. When the chocolate starts to melt, use a spatula to spread it around.
  4. Place the Butterfingers into a food processor, and blend to a fine consistency. Sprinkle on top of the melted chocolate, and allow the dish to cool for at least 30 minutes.
