Butterfinger Blondies

These were a huge hit at our Memorial Day barbecue. Only crumbs were left...


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
2 1/4 cups light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 regular-sized Butterfinger candy bars, crushed


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 13x9-inch baking pan.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, with electric mixer at medium speed, combine butter and brown sugar.

4. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth.

5. Stir in flour mixture and 1 cup of crushed butterfingers.

6. Spread in prepared pan. Sprinkle remaining crushed Butterfinger bars over top of batter.

7. Bake 30- 35 minutes, or until the bars are a bit firm to the touch. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

    Curious: I have a peanut allergy. Is there another candy bar you could substitute for the butterfinger?

      Tricia- I haven’t tried anything else in this one, but I’m a big fan of experimenting with different candy bars in desserts. Let me know if you try another & if it works out!

    Here’s a good one. Put have of a box of brownie mix (prepared) into an 8X8 pan. Lay lg symphony candy bars to cover, top with remaining batter and bake.

    Gooey Good!

    I made these and it came out more like a cake. Any ideas of what I may have done wrong?

      Usually more like cake means too many eggs. Not sure… they should be more dense than cakey.

    That’s exactly it! I guess I saw 4 Butterfingers and put in 4 eggs too. I specifically remember putting in 4 eggs. Thanks for the reply!

    I want to try this recipe, it sounds yumm! With 2 and 1\4 sugar and the butterfingers choc bar did it come out too sweet?

    I added 1 cup of chocolate chips to mine just to get a bit more of the chocolate kick and it worked out well.

    Also another trick I’ve used (and seen around the web) is to line your baking pan with non-stick foil for easy removal (and it works!), if you don’t have non-stick foil handy I’ve also found that cooking spray with a generous amount of flour sprinkled over the top of it works as well.

      I’ve never measured! I guess you’d have to figure out the ounces of a regular butterfinger- and do some math from there.
