Butterfinger Brownies

I didn’t know I could fall in love with a food as much as I’ve fallen in love with these Butterfinger Brownies. 1. It’s two of my favorite things together, Butterfinger candies and brownie. 2. They are so rich that honestly 1 square can satisfy me, which is a big help to my waist line haha. But honestly, these are just magnificent. I got the recipe from this site, Recipe Girl and I could kiss the ground she walks on for introducing me to these! 

Ingredients:
4 oz unsweetened chocolate(I use Bakers squares)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups light brown sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
Butterfinger candy bars, chopped in chunks (I use 2 bags of the Butterfinger minis that are individually wrapped)  

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9x13in pan with foil and grease the foil.
  2. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl giving it short bursts of 30 seconds, stirring after each burst. Remove from microwave when smooth and set aside to cool. 
  3. In a large mixing bowl mix butter, peanut butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla. 
  5. Mix in chocolate.
  6. Blend in flour.
  7. Stir in Butterfingers reserving about 3/4 cup for the top.
  8. Spread batter into the prepared pan and top with remaining Butterfingers.
  9. Bake 25-35 minutes. Brownies are done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely.
  10. Refrigerate until brownies are well chilled(cover with plastic wrap if chilling over night).
  11. When ready to cut, remove from refrigerator and turn onto cutting board. Carefully remove foil and using another cutting board, flip brownies back over. Use a large sharp knife to cut into squares. 

Enjoy! :)

Butterfinger Cookies

These have become a new staple of mine. They are extremely delicious, especially if you’re a fan of Butterfinger. I made them once for a meeting I had and they were gone in minutes! The cookie itself is a base recipe that I like to use for a variety of cookies and then I just add the special ingredient like chocolate chips or M&Ms or in this case Butterfinger. I’m definitely a fan of candy in cookies and other generally unhealthy things haha. 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup butter(1 1/2 sticks) softened
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 bag mini Butterfinger candies crushed 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl cream the sugars and shortening for 2-3 minutes. Add egg and mix until incorporated. 
  3. Add vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.
  4. In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture. Dough will be stiff.
  5. Stir in crushed Butterfinger candies
  6. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet or parchment paper, spaced about 2-inches apart.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.
  8. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet; transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  9. Yields 25-30 cookies

Enjoy! :)
