Butterfinger Blondies with Butterfinger Buttercream


These Butterfinger Blondies are outrageously good! They are even topped with Butterfinger Buttercream Frosting!

I’m waiting for the lazy days of summer to arrive.

Do you know where they are?

Because I am waiting for them.  I even have a bottle of wine to share with them.

Please tell me they are coming.


I am ready for the lounging and the sun tanning and magazine reading.  I am ready for all the lazy.


Having my kids home from school is wonderful…that’s what I am supposed to say, right?

Of course I dearly love my children, but they happen to be driving me a little bit crazy.

They don’t want to be lazy.  They want to be busy.

Busy going here, busy going there, busy asking me random questions, busy getting every toy in my house out, busy eating all the Ring Dings, busy arguing over who built the best Lego ship…just BUSY!

It took me an hour yesterday to unload the dishwasher because of all the busy-ness that was going on.

I am certain the amount of negotiating and mediating I have done since June I think makes me a judge.

…or maybe just a crazy lady.  Yes, that’s probably more accurate.

I mean look at the title to this post.

There has to be something wrong with me.

I dare you to find another treat that uses the word “Butter” 3 times in the title alone.

Butter, butter, butter…ANNND Butter.

Somethings don’t need anymore elaboration…

Butterfinger Blondies with Butterfinger Buttercream

Buttercream + Butterfingers = Delicious.

Yes, busy and crazy.

I remember the days of wanting to make my mother busy. Now I just want to lay around and do nothing. Or lay around and bake. Same difference. Mmm I do love me some butterfingers! These look so good.

Wow – those are absolutely amazing! I think it’s brilliant minds thinking alike – I also made blondies today! Butterfinger? You are a genius!

These are to die for! The new site looks GREAT!! Almost as good as the treats!!

July 28, 2011 1:30 am

These sound and look just terrific. I love the idea of incorporating the candy bars. Baking has changed over the years and this is progress.

July 28, 2011 2:12 am

how true…every, single word. I think these would be so scrumptious sitting below a big glob of ice cream……oooohhhh yaaaaa

Wow. This takes butterfingers to a whole new and wonderful level! 🙂

The only thing I can think of that would be tastier than these would be Bacon Blondies with Bacon Baconcream. That’s a real thing, right?

July 28, 2011 4:13 am

I could really go for these right now. No lazy days here either, and summer is almost gone!

July 28, 2011 4:23 am

I am trying to cut back on sugar but the butter butter butter drew me in like a moth to a flame. Good grief these look good.

I think this post could’ve been written verbatim from this household! 🙂 I don’t like wishing time away, but I asked my husband the other day if it was September 1st yet.
Love your blog redesign.
Here’s to happy, stress free, enjoyable remaining days of summer……

I love blondies, especially with butterfingers-my all time favorite candy bar! Love your new look!

July 28, 2011 7:43 pm

Those cookies look delicious, but I am currently living without a functioning oven and counting the days till the new one arrives. As for when the lazy days of summer come… be patient. When your kids are grown and out of the house you will be able to do anything (or nothing) all day, and believe me, it’s heavenly! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These look delicious! I only recently tried my first blondie and I really liked them. I’ve never had butterfingers as I’m from England either but I think I can guess how good these taste 🙂

August 2, 2011 10:12 am
Boy, I don’t know how I missed this on Tidy Mom so am so glad you linked it up on Strut Your Stuff. If I see the word Butterfingers I am there. I have found a couple of other really good Butterfinger Cookie recipes on other blogs, and it looks as though I have found a third. I love blondies; they are so fast as easy. I wish I could reach through my computer screen and eat one right now. These will get made this week, and the recipe and link are going on my Friday Finds list. Thanks for… Read more »

Hey Shelly, I have a batch of these in the oven right now! I was thinking of passing on the frosting, are they good without it? I tried the dough and it was real good, or does the frosting make it or break it? Thanks a lot, I love the recipes you post! I also love to bake.
