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've been like the one guy asking y'all to do this episode for ages and somehow I missed the upload. I'm so sorry. Thank you so much. Thank you SO much.

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*

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

Brad is slightly calmer when he's with Claire like I wouldn't mind working with him. When he's with Chris or Alex or other buds, it's a totally different story

Gourmet makes should do big turks, theyre not even that good but it would be interesting to see them make.

The whole time watching the Episode I was like... I know this stuff, but I have never eaten a Butterfinger... and then I started a little google search and I found it! This stuff is Made with Blätterkrokant! That is what we call it in germany, it is just like puff pastry, but as a caramel XD we usually put other nuts than peanut in there though

The old formula was better. I can’t eat the new ones. I’m hoping your recipe is more like the old one! 🤞🏻😄

Idea for a future episode, "Salty Saffitz" where we see bloopers, and cut scenes where gets upset/melts down. It could be fun.

Don't let the content of this video or the comments distract you fron the fact that the new butterfinger recipe is garbage.
Armuks Month ago
I thought this show was about making the thing better than the original i.e. not replicating but improving. But every time there's someone like Brad who complains they don't "look the same" or "taste the same". That's the point in gourmet versions!

The amount of times Charlie day, I mean Brad, says Claires name is too funny.

I am so over the top in love with Sohla and her presence! What an amazing addition to the test kitchen team, she is clearly making a name for herself, and so many people come to her for help. I want a Sohl show.

Claire, you need to keep the toffee warm while pulling it. Try keeping a space heater by the candy while pulling.

This video made me realize that butterfingers are very similar to Crispy-crunches. I’ve never had a butterfinger before lmao, but they’re my mums favourite

Can you do a Violet Crumb bar? I cant figure out how to form it consistently in a shape.
