I love Butterfingers – I blame my dad for my slight infatuation with these crispety, crunchety, peanut buttery candy bars. Seriously – it’s a problem. Last weekend, I was with my dad at Target and we picked up an obscene amount of Butterfinger candy bars – strictly for baking purposes – ha!

First, I made these Butterfinger Cookies – which are incredible, so if you haven’t made them yet, ya need to get on it. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.

After I made two batches of cookies, I still had quite a few candy bars sitting around looking all lonely in our candy dish. And since I simply couldn’t bring myself to log in Butterfingers as my dinner in My Fitness Pal, I had to get rid of them. So, I chopped them up and baked them into the center of a batch of brownies. These brownies are rich, delicious and loaded with Butterfinger bliss.
