Bent on using up a stash of leftover candy corn, I decided to experiment. Turns out, if you melt it, mix it with peanut butter and coat the balls with chocolate, you get a softer, denser version of a Butterfinger bite. Who knew? They’re delicious! —Melissa Hansen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Microwave candy corn on high for 30 seconds; stir. Cook in 15-second intervals until melted; stir until smooth. Add peanut butter; microwave mixture until smooth, 45-60 seconds, stirring 3 times.
Gently shape teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls (if mixture becomes crumbly, reheat for 15-20 seconds). Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. In microwave, melt chocolate chips and oil; stir until smooth. Dip balls in chocolate mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set.
