If you're like me, you probably stocked up on day-after-Halloween candy sales, meaning you have a ridiculous amount of fun-sized candy bars. We're well into November now, yet I still find myself drowning in leftover candy. And there are only so many fun-sized candy bars I can eat before it stops being fun. That's why I decided to use up my candy in a Butterfingers-inspired dip, adapted from this recipe.

This sweet treat is super easy to make, and the ingredients cost a total of $8, a steal in college currency. Try this treat with a healthy twist and use fruits to scoop the dip. Apples, bananas, and strawberries will make your afternoon snack a little more special.

#SpoonTip: This recipe can be made without the use of a mixer, but it would be 100% easier using one.

Overall, making this treat iss a breeze. If you're looking for a good way to eat healthily, use apples or strawberries, but this dip is also a good way to sneak some sweets. Since a mixer isn't necessary, it can be made in a dorm room with a mixing spoon. This is a fantastic dip to serve at a party because it makes a lot.
