Looking for a way to use up all those bowls of candy from the past weekend? We used some of ours to make Butterfinger Blonde Brownies. Blonde brownies, candy, and chocolate will make these yummy bars disappear in a hurry.
Are you still recovering from the sugar rush of the past week?
Our kids made out with a huge bag of candy, and they put a pretty good dent in it over the weekend. I take no responsibility for the sugar comas that might have happened because I was traveling.
I guess devouring your candy at lightening speed is one way to get rid of it.
I did snag an extra bag of Butterfinger Bars to pass out, but then these blonde brownies happened. They were seriously the best things ever. I am pleading the fifth when it comes to saying how many I snacked on. Let's just say it wasn't one 😉
I used my basic blonde brownie recipe. It's the same one I used when I made these M&M Blonde Brownies. (You should make those too...just sayin.) Then I added the entire bag of crushed Butterfinger candy bars. Yup, you read that right. An entire bag!!! Woah!
And then because it just wasn't crazy enough already...I added a chocolate frosting glaze. Oh, my! Talk about yum to the oh. My chubby little fingers couldn't stay out of the pan of these. But I wasn't going to say how many I ate, so forget you read that.
Just go find the leftover bags of candy, dig out all the Butterfinger bars, and go make your own pan. I'm telling you, it's so worth it.
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups crushed Butterfinger candy bars (11.5 oz bag fun size)

- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter until creamy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and salt and beat again.
- Stir together the baking powder and flour and slowly add to the butter mixture until incorporated. Add the crushed Butterfinger bars and stir by hand gently.
- Spread the batter into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 22-23 minutes. Do not over bake. Remove and let cool completely.
