Butterfinger Brownies

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

3 eggs

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.
