I bought way too much candy for Halloween! I found this recipe on http://www.recipegoldmine.com which uses Butterfinger bars and there happened to be 3 bags of those sitting on my kitchen counter so Bob’s Sunday School class got these for their treat today. A few made it home after church and I have to say that they are really good!
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter (I softened it slightly in the microwave for about 15 seconds)
2 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 Butterfinger candy bars, crushed and divided (I figured 3 snack size bars were about the same as 1 regular size bar so I used 12 small bars which ended up being about 1 1/2 cups crushed candy)
Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 13″ pan.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In a mixer bowl, on medium speed, combine butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth. Beat in flour mixture then stir in 1 cup crushed candy. Spread in prepared baking pan. (The batter was really thick and sticky so I ended up just spraying my hands with Pam and spreading it in the pan with my hands.) Sprinkle remaining crushed candy over top of batter. Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until set. Cool and then cut into bars.
