Butterfinger Blondies

November 20, 2013Teresa

Butterfinger Blondies have got to be put on your holiday baking list this year! Goodness, gracious, these cookie bars are sensational. These delightful treats are filled with Butterfingers pieces. Then they’re topped with a buttercream icing and more Butterfinger pieces on top. Seriously, these blondies are to die for! Each mouthful just slides down your throat. The incredible sensations of chocolate, caramel and, yes, the requisite sugar high that goes along with it is remarkable. You will be licking your lips until you swallow the next bite. Chocolate lover’s, I hope you delight in this spectacular dessert and try it soon.

This recipe is where it all began! I saw my first pin on Pinterest in January 2012. These scrumptious looking Butterfinger Blondies it were all over those early pages. I had tried so hard to avoid FaceBook and, while I had heard of Pinterest, it was still fairly new then. But my daughter-in-law pulled up her Pinterest account while we were visiting for my granddaughter’s second birthday. All my self-control vanished in an instant.

I signed up for FaceBook because that was the only way I could get a Pinterest account. My first post on FaceBook was a picture of this luscious dessert. I thought to myself, wow, I HAVE to make this. It has been almost two years since I saw that original recipe. I finally got around to making it this past week.

I am deeply indebted to Six Sisters’ Stuff for posting this recipe a couple of years ago. Truly it was the inspiration of their picture that got me started in food blogging. It also helped me get into Pinterest, FaceBook and other social media. I’m also grateful to Cookies and Cups for creating the original recipe. We have certainly enjoyed it. Thank you ladies, you have been quite an inspiration to me.

I need to make a couple of recommendations in order to get this recipe to work. When I was making the icing after following the directions to the letter I found it was crumbly and not like a frosting consistency. Most buttercream frostings call for vanilla and milk in the ingredients (but the original recipe did not). So I added a teaspoon of vanilla and a tablespoon of milk. That’s all it took to get the frosting to the right consistency. I also really liked how the second version of this recipe used chopped Butterfingers on top of the icing. I liked that a lot better than stirring the Butterfingers into the icing. So that is what I did here. I think you will agree that Butterfinger Blondies are very lovely and elegant. They are surely worthy of gracing any table or company gathering.

This rave dessert is exactly what the doctor ordered to kick off your holiday baking this year! And certainly, you need to include this recipe in your  yearly holiday baking repertoire as well. Don’t forget these amazing bars will also be ideal for special parties. Try them out for birthdays, tailgate parties, baby showers, or whatever! It’s also a fantastic way to use up all that leftover Halloween candy (which is what I did). Your family won’t be able to get enough of these fabulous cookies. You may even find yourself making them often!

Soften butter in a bowl. Add brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla, eggs, baking soda and salt.

Mix with an electric mixer to combine.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.

Stir by hand with a wooden spoon (using a mixer at this point toughens baked goods).

Place cookie mixture into a greased 9×13″ baking dish.

Bake 25 minutes at 350 until just set. Remove from oven and cool completely before adding frosting.

While the blondies are baking prepare frosting: Soften butter and put in mixing bowl. Add Crisco shortening. Cream mixture with an electric mixer.

I added 2 1/2 cups. You can see that my mixture is too crumbly to use for frosting. So I went back to the drawing board and came up with this:

I mixed those two ingredients into that crumbly mixture with my electric mixer and voila, the icing was now of the correct consistency.
