Butterfinger Blondies

The other day I was in the mood for brownies but alas, I had no chocolate in the house. Zip. Zero. However, I did have two Butterfinger bars that my daughter had coerced me into buying at the grocery store. So we made Butterfinger Blondies and forgot all about the brownie need.

In a mixing bowl, combine 1 stick of melted butter, vanilla and dark brown sugar.

Add in 1 egg, blend.

Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla.

Grab your rolling pin and crush a Butterfinger bar beneath it.

Crushing the bar while it is still in the wrapper saves you from having little Butterfinger pieces flying through the kitchen.

Fold in the crushed Butterfinger.

Spread the batter into a greased 8x8" pan. Of if you are like me and for some crazy reason don't own a 8x8" pan, you can spread it it into a greased 8" cake pan or spring form pan.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Be careful not to overbake these because they'll lose their moist chewiness.

Which would be a sad, sad, sad thing.

When the blondies come out of the oven, crush another Butterfinger bar and scatter that on the top.

Hello, Delicious!

Serve it up with a bit of chocolate fudge sauce and ice cream (I may or may not have been too excited about eating mine to take a photo with the ice cream on top).

  1. I love Butterfingers so this seems like a great option. You are super clever to always try/think of these things!

    Tastefully Simple has a divine Key-Lime Cheeseball--think you could come up with a recipe for that? On the other hand, maybe you shouldn't try (it would be nice to fit in my new jeans a while longer).

  2. Oh my goodness.....Thank you! These look amazingly delicious! Pretty sure my waistline will be thanking you too!


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
