Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Butterfingers | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Feb 11, 2020
  • What do you think? Should Brad join Claire on Gourmet Makes more often? Just think about how differently all of the gourmet snacks would have come out: fermented M&Ms, dry-aged Peeps, campfire Cheetos. Anyway, in this episode, join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make gourmet Butterfingers.

    I may be overindulging with all my binge-watching of Gourmet Makes. Even though I have never made candy or tempered chocolate or anything like that, around the 9:50 mark I said “why don’t you add baking soda, Claire?” I see that it took you until closer to the 14:30 mark to get there. I could’ve saved you some steps, Claire! 😁

    She could've just put a baking sheet on the stovetop and poured the toffee, peanut butter and cornflakes on it. Just keep folding until it's Incorporated and then take the sheet pan off the flame and let it set up and score marks to form bars🤷‍♂️

    Butterfinger must have paid for propaganda. The recipe tastes nothing like it used to! And frankly isn't as tasty to me.

    Hey Claire, I love to watch your show.
    When I was young, I learned how to make Butterfinger.
    Take your peanut butter, around 4 cups, and spread it over a clean non stick surface.
    In a med saucepan, make a soft candy mix to around 360 degrees on a candy thermometer and pour it over the peanut butter and mix well. Re-spread and cut into bars. When completely set up, it will have a light crystal structure just like Butterfinger. Cover with chocolate.

    Me the first time after watching a Gourmet Makes episode: I get that you improved it Claire, but I am not going to make this, it looks like you've suffered enough for the both of us.
    Me rewatching the episode for umpteenth time during quarantine: Well, I have chocolate, peanut butter, corn flakes and sugar. This will be dinner!

    Does anybody else not crave or think about these snacks FOR YEARS until you watch a Gourmet Makes episode? *goes to add Butterfinger to the grocery list*

  • Karen Wall

    I’m curious. Is Bon Appetit a test kitchen for recipes so they can go into their magazine? Or, do they create new recipes? Maybe a little of both? I just wonder what the Chefs are doing in the background. Thanks!

    Wow, I'm surprised Claire has never made candy before. You should send her to check out Lofty Pursuits, she'd love it. Send Brad, too, he'd love how old-school they are.

    Candy makers have heat lamps that they use when stretching candy. You should try that to get even more layers
