I did a Very Nice Thing today. Yep. Early in the morning, too. Less than half an hour after waking up.
I let Dave choose what I was making today. :)
I showed him some of my options and he wasn't thrilled by any of them. And then he held up the bag of Butterfinger Jingles and said, "Do something with these!" A bit more discussion - no peanut butter this time, no extra chocolate - and here we are.
He was even nice enough to chop up the Butterfingers, too. (I told him I'd post that, too LOL)
This is my go-to recipe for blondies, because it's super easy and involves little clean up. There's a nice brown sugary taste to them that goes well with the Butterfinger flavor. I used about half a cup of them, but you could do more or less, depending on how much you like the stuff. :)
1 cup flour
½ tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
½ to 3/4 cup Butterfingers, chopped
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8-inch baking pan.
Sift together flour and baking powder; set aside.
Cream butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla until well combined. Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in Butterfinger pieces. Spread in prepared pan.
Bake at 350F for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Let cool completely before cutting into bars. Makes 16.
