A vegan Butterfingers bar cut in half to see the toffee-like inside.

Vegan Butterfingers

  • Author: Elena Contis
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8 bars 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


This homemade vegan Butterfingers has all of the crunchy, peanut buttery, chocolatey flavors, but is so much healthier than store-bought!


  • 1 cup peanut butter (the runnier, the better)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup cornflakes cereal, crushed
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Place the cornflakes in a reusable bag and crush them until they are ground into a medium-fine crumb. Then, pour the cornflakes into a large mixing bowl.
  2. To the mixing bowl, add the peanut butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir until everything is combined, and set aside.
  3. In a non-stick saucepan, heat the maple syrup on medium heat mixing consistently so nothing burns. Right as the maple syrup is about to boil (3-5 minutes), pour it over the peanut butter mixture. Mix until everything is incorporated.
  4. Transfer the mixture to an 8×8 baking pan lined with parchment paper. Use a rubber spatula to press down the mixture into an even layer. Freeze for an hour until the filling sets.
  5. After the filling has set, slice into 8 bars.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and melt the chocolate chips with the coconut oil on the stovetop or microwave.
  7. Using two forks, dip the bars into the melted chocolate to coat them completely. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off before placing them onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze them again for 10 minutes to set. Then, enjoy your homemade Butterfingers straight from the freezer!
  8. Once the bars have set, consolidate them into an airtight container and store them in the freezer for up to three months.
