A chewy and delicious cookie bar generously sprinkled throughout with Butterfinger pieces. These simple Butterfinger Blondies are what lunch-box-treat dreams are made of and just in time for back to school! I love a good bar cookie recipe. If you do, too, check out these Snickerdoodle Bars. They’re another one of my favorites!
I mean, what’s not to love about a cookie bar? From the perspective of the one doing the baking, they are way less time-consuming than baking cookies. Granted, there are usually fewer servings than if you made cookies. However, for some of us–the ones with no self-control–that is also a bonus. 🙂
When I saw the bag of Butterfinger pieces at the grocery store, I couldn’t just walk by. We’ve been living in Germany for three years, and even though we have plenty of American things available to us at the commissary, we rarely get baking things outside of the normal realm. Mini M&Ms baking bits, Kraft Caramel bits, and Butterfinger pieces are things we just don’t see over here. I loved checking out what was new in the baking aisle while we were in Utah. I was especially excited about the Butterfinger pieces because I’ve been dreaming of making these bars for along time.
I can’t wait for you to make these! Don’t forget to come back and tell me how you liked them.
