Makes 12-16 bars
Adapted from Recipe Circus

3 cups candy corn
1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter
2 cups milk chocolate chips or chocolate candy melts, for dipping

Line an 8 x 9 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.

Place the candy corn in a glass bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between until candy is completely melted.  Add in the peanut butter and continue to stir vigorously until the mixture is smooth.

Spread the mixture into pan and let sit at room temperature until cool, about an hour.  Using a sharp knife, cut candy into 1 x 2 inch bars. 

Melt chocolate chips or candy melts in the microwave, checking every 15 seconds.  Stir until smooth.  Dip each bar into chocolate to coat completely.  Place on wax paper lined baking sheet to firm.  Store covered in the fridge.
