Butterfinger Blondies

Butterscotch Blondies

Some treats to go with dinner for my friend Julie and her family.  I’m not gonna lie, I saved a couple for us and they were delicious!  The recipe comes from “Six Sisters’ Stuff”.  Bob loves Butterfingers so he loved these too!

blondies:

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 eggs

2 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups coarsely chopped Butterfinger bars (approx 16 Fun Size bars)

Butterfinger buttercream:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

2 1/2 – 3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup chopped Butterfinger bars (approx 4 Fun Size bars)

1  For blondies, Preheat oven to 350.

2  Cream butter and sugars.  Add vanilla and eggs and mix until incorporated.

3  Add dry ingredients until just combined.

4  Stir in chopped Butterfingers.

5  Spread batter in 9 x 13″ baking dish and bake for 25 minutes until center is just set.

6  Remove from oven and cool completely.

7  For frosting, cream butter and shortening together until smooth.

8  Add in powdered sugar on low speed then turn up to medium and mix until smooth.

9  Stir chopped Butterfingers into frosting and frost bars or frost bars then sprinkle Butterfingers on top.

(I had some leftover buttercream icing from the wedding cakes in the fridge so I used that which is similar to this recipe but without the shortening which I’m not crazy about.  You can find the recipe for my buttercream icing here.)
