Butterfinger Brownies are Super Chocolatey Fudgey Brownies with Butterfinger in the brownie batter and crushed Butterfingers on top of the melted chocolate on top of the brownies.
I am back from my girls tip to Vegas and work this week is not sounding too appetizing. Luckily there is tons of halloween candy leftover for me to bake with. I buy extra so this always happens 😉
I actually made these brownies last week when I had a sudden urge for Butterfingers. You see I go through phases with Butterfingers and last week was one of my I am obsessed, need Butterfingers ASAP kind of phases.
So naturally, I picked up some of the unwrapped mini Butterfingers in the bag. Those little bags of unwrapped candies is seriously deadly but kind of genius at the same time!! Anyways, I ate a few Butterfingers and could tell where this was going me laying on the couch catching up on some reality TV scarfing down the full bag of Butterfingers. BUT I practiced some self-control, a rare occurrence for me, and put the Butterfingers away. The next day in order to prevent the same activities I decided to bake with the Butterfingers. Great choice on my part because these Butterfinger Brownies were to do for!
Originally I wanted to make a chocolate ganache or chocolate frosting on the top of brownies but I had issues and ran out of powdered sugar and the brand new container of heavy cream was off. Let's not talk about it, I was SOO annoyed. Anyways I just used melted chocolate and it was a scrumptious decision.
Now grab your leftover Butterfinger candies and make these brownies, you will Looooooove them. At least I did 😉 Or try my Butterfinger Cake Recipe.
