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.

Please?

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

Please!

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.

The end.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts.

    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!

  3. These look too good to be true!!

    And you already know how I am feeling about this summer after my meltdown the other day. I neeeeeed a breeeaaaaakkkkk.

    Loving your new space 🙂 Looks just gorgeous.

    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 the story!…in fact, I’m quite related to it, since I have 2 busy “bees” of my own… 😉 Nice blog, I am definitely a new follower.

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

  7. 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.
