Host Favorite... Honey ButterFinger Bites

If you follow my blog, you know that I pick one recipe to be my host favorite and I try to make it before the next Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party.  Last week, I found Honey-Butter Finger Bites from The Nerdy Farm Wife.  I am not sure if I have ever eaten butterfingers as I can't remember and I am sure that isn't possible for me not to have tried them as I have eaten every type of  candy there is.... but I don't remember what they taste like.  But this recipe intrigued me and it only had 3 ingredients.  I also love Nerdy Farm Wife's picture of them with the fallen leaves... So great.
The only thing about this recipe that I needed to change was the peanut butter.  We have a peanut sensitivity in the house, so I try very hard to stay away from it, so I decided that biscoff would work great and I also had some nutella.  That is what I am going to try  and both worked.  The biscoff bites were soft and chewy... just how I liked them and the nutella were harder... they also were good and I didn't put chocolate on the nutella ones.

adapted from The Nerdy Farm Wife
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter - I used crunchy biscoff in one recipe and nutella in another
chocolate chips for coating - I used Ghirardelli 60% chocolate

Place honey in saucepan and bring to a soft boil stage, (around 275 degrees).  Remove from heat and add either biscoff or nutella and stir for a few minutes.  Pour in pan that is covered with parchment paper.  Place in refrigerator to harden.  I took mine out after about 15 minutes to score so that it will be easier to cut when they hardened.  Once hard, bring out of fridge and break or cut into pieces.  Dip in melted chocolate and place back on pan covered with parchment paper and return to fridge to harden again.

I didn't dip the bites that I made with the nutella as I thought the chocolate in the nutella was enough.  The ones that I made with biscoff were softer than the ones that I made with nutella.
