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!
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups coarsely chopped Butterfinger bars (approx 16 Fun Size bars)
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.)
