Butterfinger Candy

This was quite possibly the easiest candy I have ever made. I'm sorry the picture is so bad, but I actually forgot to take a picture of all the candy, until there was only one piece left at work. So hence the horrible picture of an amazing tasting candy! I wish I had thought to cut it open  so you could see the beautiful orange "butterfinger" like center. These take almost no time at all and are so easy that anyone could do it!!
1 (13 oz) bag candy corn
1 cup peanut butter
1 bag Milk chocolate chips

Melt the candy corn in the microwave, stirring every 15 seconds. Keep stirring each time  you check it because it gets hard quickly. When it's all done melting, quickly stir in the peanut butter. Make sure you stir thoroughly and you may even need to use a fork or the back of your spoon to break up any "hard spots" in the candy corn from it setting up too quickly. Line a square pan with parchment paper (leave enough out on the sides to be able to pull out the whole candy piece as one sheet). Press the candy down into the parchment paper lined pan. Spread out the best you can. Chill for awhile until it's thoroughly cooled down. Cut into squares. (These are pretty rich and sweet, so smaller squares work better). Melt your milk chocolate chips in the microwave, also stirring every 20 seconds or so. These burn quickly before they actually lose their shape, so stir a lot each time you check it. Dip squares into the melted milk chocolate and lay on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place in  the refrigerator until they are cooled down and set up!
