In honor of the new Butterfinger Bites®, a bite-size version of Nestlé® Butterfinger®, Nestlé is asking dessert experts in the industry to create new recipes that include the crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery Butterfinger Bites.

Two of America’s top pastry chefs will help kick-off a new Butterfinger Bites custom recipe program. Christina Tosi, founder of New York’s wildly popular Momofuku Milk Bar, and “Top Chef: Just Desserts” contestant Sally Camacho Mueller, will take to Facebook to post their one-of-a-kind recipes using the new Butterfinger Bites sweet treats.

“Culinary experts and novice bakers from across the country love to use Butterfinger candy bars as a favorite ingredient in cakes, cookies, ice cream shakes and more,” said Butterfinger spokesperson Tricia Bowles of Nestlé USA, Confections & Snacks Division. “We asked professional chefs and food truck artisans to consider Butterfinger Bites as mix-ins, toppings, decorations and more, and what they came up with was beyond delicious!”

“The flavors and textures of Butterfinger are great additions to so many desserts,” said Tosi, who frequently makes Momofuku Milk Bar pastries from pantry staples and snacks, such as pretzels and potato chips. “It’s going to be fun finding new ways to use the unique taste and texture of Butterfinger!”    

Camacho Mueller-- a veteran of Wolfgang Puck’s WP24, Four Seasons Hotels, and the Wynn Resort -- also is poised to blend Butterfinger Bites into a tasty treat to remember. “As a child, Butterfinger was one of my favorite candy bars,” said Camacho Mueller. “I have so many ideas about how I can use Butterfinger in new dessert creations and can’t wait to share them with Butterfinger fans.”

To demonstrate the creative range of the crispety, crunchety candy bar, some of the best dessert food trucks in the U.S. have also been invited to create an exclusive treat using Butterfinger Bites. Beginning June 27 and through the end of the year, the trucks will feature their custom creations as they roll into their favorite parking spots, food festivals and special events across the country.

“We’re excited to see the novel new ways that Butterfinger Bites can be used in baking,” said Bowles. ”The iconic candy bar may be 90-ish years old, but as our fans continue to show us, the unique crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery taste never goes out of style!”

Since Butterfinger® first made its sweet debut; fans are still laying a finger on America’s favorite crispety, crunchety, peanut buttery candy bar. As part of Butterfinger’s 90-ish birthday celebration this year, fans have experienced the “best of” Butterfinger through a 90-day countdown highlighting the candy bar’s journey from boundary-pushing marketing stunts to the evolution of its candy wrapper designs and endless recipe possibilities. Butterfinger fans are now invited to join in and continue the celebration by sharing their own delicious recipe creations, rate their favorites and recreate new ones on the Butterfinger Recipes tab at Facebook.com/Butterfinger or Butterfinger.com. The 90-ish Butterfinger birthday celebration proved that decades later, even a 90-ish year-old continues to push the limits of fun to new levels while remaining true to its sweet self.
