Butterfingers! YES!



A couple things are on my mind this morning.


1) Why don't babies love sleeping as much as real humans? 
I am soooooo tired and the coffee maker is being a tease and taking FOREVER to brew. Do you ever feel like that on extra sleepy mornings?! I feel like a drop an hour is coming out. It's torture.
My daughter has taken up this new thing of singing in her sleep. We've been watching American Idol lately, so maybe she's been inspired. Cool. NOT at 3 am though, honey.
It is adorable to hear her little voice making song like noises whenever she hears music. But when she wakes you up in the middle of the night to do so, not so adorable. Especially when you roll over and see that she is dead asleep. Greeeeat...How do I stop this thing???!!
So, needless to say, I'm tired.
And my coffee is finally done brewing. *singing songs of joy*


2)another thing:
Have you been watching American Idol this season???
Man are they cruel to those kids! Me and Mr. Husband felt for them as they completed their song for the day and were passed through to the next round, only to be kicked off at the end of the day cause the judges passed too many people through, so they had to do more cuts. AFTER THEY TOLD THEM THEY WERE THROUGH!!! Is it just me, or is that just downright cruel?!


3)Also, what is it with guys calling each other 'bra'?
Is it really that hard to say the "o"? It sounds so lazy. And also, It's part of our undergarments. 
How dumb would that be if us girls called each other "boxer"? Or, we could just shorten it to "box"....that's much easier to say.
I just hate hate hate improper and lazy english. 
Like the There, They're, and Their's. WHY CAN'T PEOPLE GET THOSE STRAIGHT?!
Or when someone says "I aint sayin' nothin'". What exactly does that even mean? Cause what you're actually is saying is that you are saying something, because your 'aint' negates your 'nothing'. And you know 'aint' isn't even a word and never should be used because when you type it out it gets underlined with the red squiggly.


4)So go learn your English grammar and make Butterfingers.
Which is another thing I've been thinking about. 
HOMEMADE BUTTERFINGERS!
Can you even believe It?!
Something about butterfingers makes me so happy...I'm usually a chocolate, chocolate on more chocolate kind of girl...But for some reason I love these things. And the homemade taste pretty much identical to the original store kind! How dangerous is that? 
They're a cinch to make, and ridiculously amazing.
Did I mention they're healthy? They have a whole jar of peanut butter in them- which means they're protein packed!
Actually, if that jar of PB wasn't in there, we'd all die from sugar overdoses...seeing as there is a whole bag of candy corn in there too. But the protein makes our blood sugar not go crazy and kill us, or something like that. 
I'm not a doctor, okay?






Butterfingers
adapted from Plain Chicken
1, 16 oz. can of Peanut Butter
1 Bag (16-19 oz.) Candy Corn
1 Bag Milk Chocolate, Semi-sweet chocolate chips/Melting chocolate
2 Tbsp. Shorteing (For melting, if using chocolate chips, which I did)

Melt candy corn in microwave at 30 second intervals.
When completely melted, stir in Peanut butter.
Mix til completely incorporated and smooth. It might look like the mixture is seperating, but don't worry...It's fine.
Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper so it comes up the sides of the pans. this just makes for easier cutting at the end.
Cool completely.
Lift out bars from pan, and cut into desired size.
Dip in chocolate.
Done, time!


Enjoy :)

*I let mine sit in the fridge for 4 hours before cutting them, so they were pretty hard and more broke off into chunks. Which is fine by me cause they still tasted like heaven, but for presentations sake, they weren't the most gorgeous looking things. So be smart and don't let them sit in the cold for too long!
