  1. Prepare the Butterfinger Mixture:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the crushed Butterfinger candy bars and softened cream cheese. Mix until well combined. You can use a food processor to crush the candy bars or crush them in a sealed plastic bag using a rolling pin.
  2. Shape into Balls:
    • Roll the mixture into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes. Chilling makes them easier to dip in chocolate.
  3. Melt Chocolate:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval until the chocolate is smooth. If desired, add a tablespoon of vegetable shortening to the chocolate and stir until smooth. The shortening helps the chocolate coat the balls more smoothly.
  4. Dip the Balls:
    • Using a fork or toothpick, dip each chilled Butterfinger ball into the melted chocolate, ensuring it’s completely coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off.
  5. Decorate (Optional):
    • While the chocolate is still wet, you can decorate the Butterfinger Balls with additional crushed Butterfinger candy or chocolate sprinkles if desired.
  6. Set on Wax Paper:
    • Place the coated Butterfinger Balls back on the wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  7. Chill Again:
    • Return the baking sheet to the refrigerator and let the chocolate coating harden for at least 1 hour.
  8. Serve:
    • Once the chocolate has hardened, your Butterfinger Balls are ready to serve. Enjoy!

These Butterfinger Balls are a delightful treat for Butterfinger candy lovers. They are perfect for parties, holiday gatherings, or as a sweet indulgence anytime you’re craving a little something special.
