Friday Favorites–Copycat Treats

This week’s selections were inspired by my attempt at something I saw on…wait for it…Pinterest.  I just couldn’t believe you could mix two things together, coat it in chocolate and come out on the other side with a Butterfinger, so I had to try it.

There are many variations of this recipe out there, but I liked the lazy easy way that Cookies and Cups went with Butterfinger Bark, made even lazier by me by only spreading the chocolate on top.  I have a bruise on my hand from cutting it, I may be missing a filling or two, but it’s definitely tasty and does have a Butterfingeresque quality.  The secret is candy corn!  Shh!


This Clone of a Cinnabon from AllRecipes user Marsha Fernandez is another recipe I’ve actually tried.  We were snowed in on Christmas a couple of years ago, so I hadn’t been able to get to the store to get frozen cinnamon rolls like I usually do.  These really do taste just like a Cinnabon, which is all kinds of dangerous!


I always have a tin of Cinnamon Altoids in my car.  I might try making my own, like these from Instructables user scoochmaroo.  I could have any flavor they make in flavored oil, but mine would probably still be cinnamon.


I could have drank chocolate milk every day when I was a kid, if it had been allowed.  Now, not drinking it often is a choice, but I’d love to try this Homemade Nesquik from Sugar Bananas.


I’ve only had Cow Tales once or twice in my life, and it’s been so long I don’t remember exactly what they taste like.  But according to this recipe from Sprinkle Bakes, it’s caramel with cream filling, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Cookies and Cups again, this time with Homemade Nutter Butters.  How did she get these to look so perfectly like store-bought?  Mine would probably be a little wonky.


My daughter went on a Goldfish cracker bender for a couple of years.  I think she finally burned herself out, fortunately before Costco ran out.  Once she falls off the wagon, we might have to try making our own with this recipe from missamy on Tasty Kitchen.


Not only are these Homemade Pixie Sticks from Amanda’s Parties To Go really cute, but it sounds like they’re healthier than the originals.

This isn’t so much a recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter Twix from Life in a Peanut Shell, as it is a suggested method you could make them, which is really all you need.


I lost a tooth once in a Tootsie Roll.  It was a baby tooth, and needed to pop out, but it was still a little traumatic.  Like candy had turned on me.  I’m probably mostly over it now, and I’ll bet these Homemade Tootsie Rolls from Paula Deen taste better than the originals.


I have to go see if there’s any Butterfinger Bark left in the kitchen.
