Butterfinger Blondies are the best blondie recipe with chunks of Butterfinger mixed in. This is the perfect dessert for lovers of Butterfinger candy bars.
A good blondie recipe is buttery and sweet, and it has a nice, firm texture with a tender bite. This is that kind of blondie recipe. A good amount of Butterfinger candy bar chunks are swirled into these good blondies.
I love making blondies because it’s pretty easy to add things to a blondie and create a new dessert. Eat blondies by themselves, and they’re delicious. Add chocolate chips, and you have a blondie recipe with a little chocolate added in. Add Butterfinger (or another candy bar), and you have an even more decadent treat!
Butterfinger Blondies are a great blondie recipe to bake and bring to a potluck or serve at a party. They’re always the first to go on the dessert table. People really love Butterfingers!
Butterfinger is a candy bar created in 1923 in Chicago, Illinois by Otto Schnering. It has a crispy peanut butter core and is covered in chocolate. It’s a popular candy bar in the United States.
How many ounces are in a Butterfinger Candy Bar?
A traditional, full-sized Butterfinger Bar is 2.1-ounces. You’ll need 4 full-size candy bars for this recipe (total of 8.4-ounces). If you have fun size candy bars to work with, those are .74-ounces each. You’d need about 11 1/2 fun size candy bars for this recipe if you’re using those.
How to crush Butterfinger candy bars:
Place Butterfingers in a zip baggie and crush with a mallet or by pressing with the back of a large spoon. Alternately, you can chop them on a cutting board and they’ll fall apart into small pieces pretty easily.
I’m a sucker for recipes that utilize candy bars in one way or another. I’ve tried Milky Way Cake… it calls for 8 full-size Milky Way bars. I swear that cake weighs about 5 pounds (it’s awfully good though.) Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Cake is another keeper… just one of those recipes that always turns out, well… ‘perfect.’ My son made a Snicker’s Bar Pie for our County Fair last year. He won a blue ribbon with that decadent treat. And my absolute favorite Gelato recipe has chunks of Heath Bar swimming inside.
