Peanut-Butterfinger Blondies








Peanut-Butterfinger Blondies

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup coarsely chopped Butterfingers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8-inch square baking dish with foil; coat foil with cooking spray.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk in peanut butter and sugar, and bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat and cool for 5 minutes.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift together flour and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on high speed, beat the eggs and vanilla for 2 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low, and gradually add peanut butter mixture. Increase mixer speed to high, and beat 1-2 minutes, of until really well combined. Stir in flour mixture and Butterfinger, by hand, until just combined.

Scrape batter into prepared baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees F, for 25-28 minutes, or until light golden. Cool completely before lifting foil out and slicing into bars. Freeze for easier slicing.

Makes 9 bars

  1. No no no! Here's what you have to do, pay attention if you want to get thinner: Spread the brownie with buttercream, then pass by flour and egg and then deep fry. Let it cool and cover completely with chocolate. Let the chocolate harden, cut the blondie into chuncks and use them to make cookies. Those are the cookies to eat if you want to get thin! Hope this helps! ;)

  2. Oh I'm SURE the deep frying will do the trick! That was a HECK of a lot of fruit and grain they poured into that there little cookie!

    I'm making these. I'm making them and I'm reporting back (but I'm substituting the butterfingers for something available in Poland...)

  3. LOL! Your humour is right up my alley Em! Maybe if we breaded them with coconut THEN deep fried them they would make you thinner!

  4. You are so funny Emiline. I have started that cookie diet years ago, but still no results... I think it's definitely in the deep frying.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yep, deep frying must be the trick. I often try these kinds of diets... for example, I tried a liquid diet yesterday of Snickerdoodle Ice Cream... but it didn't seem to work very well. Maybe if I combine exercise?

    Remember when I made those Butterfinger Brownies (that were really blondies)? These look similarly delish. I bet the ice cream/caramel really put them over the top. Did you use FF caramel??

  6. Anything topped with ice cream is a good idea, no matter what the weight goal. Awesome blondies.

  8. Deep fried food is the key to a slender figure, I'll say. :)

    These look delicious, Emiline. I'd love to have them right now. :)

  9. I think CC has the right idea, but just to be on the safe side, you really should wash it all down with a malted milkshake. I had one today, and my jeans feel loose already.

  10. ha! i'm laughing. yes, i think clumbsy cookie has the idea. All these blondies need is a little chocolate sauce and whipped cream — the secret ingredients for helping you to drop those last few pounds. be persistent!

  12. I'm allergic, but I'll take the Butterfingers. Oh, I think I'm allergic to them too. Well, crap. Ya know, I'd TOTALLY go to the hospital over these. Totally. But only if the ice cream was involved, too.

  13. I agree with Cookie's method, however I would make ice cream cookie sandwiches out of them, and dip them in peanut butter dip... like at the ice cream shop :) Yup, I'm thinking 5 lbs lost in 2 hours.

    Trust me I'm a doctor (in 8 weeks) ;)

  14. Woman! You are tempting me again! These look fantabulous. And I'm sure they'll help me to lose that last 15 pounds :)

  15. What great combo you come up with! The title alone sounds sooo good!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd eat an all-cookie diet if you were doing the baking. That's one heckuva blondie sundae you assembled there.

    Really though, this doesn't look like it needs much in the way of improvement. No deep frying is necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like your blondie diet better than the cookie diet. I bet your blondies taste WAY better.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love that you bake with natural peanut butter instead its 'regular' counterpart. The texture of these looks amazing!

    Emiline, I must say that I'm impressed by your creativity to come up with different headers. Where do you get the ideas from?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Seriously hilarious. I see those cookie diet carts through the malls and think are they crazy? They must taste nasty.

    I'll join your blondie diet anytime, I'll take the scoop of ice cream too!

  20. Cute new banner!

    I sometimes do a little experiment where I eat as many sweets as I can just waiting to see the tipping point of when my jeans get too tight. Weird, I know. I'll have to add these blondies to my repertoire.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Emiline these look seriously good. I am lucky to have a very dear friend in the US and she has sent me a pack of Butterfingers in my birthday package, so I will defintely be making these!

  25. Oohhhh, man- deep frying that WOULD be kick ass! Do it!

    I really, really like your new header thing, too! It's sooo cute.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my goodness, I can't believe that that's a real dieting plan being marketed - HAHA!!! Too funny. But hey, I'd gladly eat those Peanut-Butterfinger Blondies everyday, even though the LAST thing that I ever need to do is lose weight.

    ReplyDelete
  27. OML you put Butterfingers in the Blondies? I heart you! Seriously, Butterfingers are my favorite candy bar. I think I'm going to cry with joy....sniff...

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL, I'm all for the cookie diet - especially when served with caramel sauce and icecream :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. You come up with the greatest combinations. They look amazing.

    I think you should develop The BROWNIE Diet. If cookies work, then brownies should work even better!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm not one for Butterfingers, but I wouldn't pass on this if offered one.

    Still waiting on what you'd do with a Snickers...

    ReplyDelete
  31. hahah thats pretty funny! I wanna try the cookie diet. do oreos count?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yum! Maybe if I eat the cookie with a DIET coke that will do the trick.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love your website! this recipe is a must try since its so 'low fat'.
    although i'v been planning to make your not so low fat oreo cream cheese swirled brownies this weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  34. i'm convinced that deep-frying something automatically improves it, no matter what it is. shoestring? yep. cd? yep. napkin? absolutely.
    meanwhile, that little "cookie jar" tune will be in my head all day. takes me all the way back to kindergarten. :)

  35. How about chicken-fried peanut butter-Butterfinger blondies?!

    Though I think the sundae with the ice cream and caramel looks kinds perfect, I must say... :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I needed something to make this weekend for labor day and this is it. Be still my heart! I think I lost 20 lbs. just looking at the photos!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm trying to be "good" lately...but I think I'm going to have to make these! Butterfingers are my favorite candy ever! And I can never get enough PB...the combination sounds awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Those look amazing. An all-cookie diet--now that's something I could really get behind.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've been thinking about going on a diet to get rid of those 10/12 pounds I gained after finding the food blog world. This might be an easier & yummier answer to fitting back into my skinny jeans! Thanks for the recipe. I just printed it up!

  42. Very witty, Em. LOL. Your blondies look fab.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I usually don't go for the blondies because they aren't rich enough and don't have enough dark chocolate in them but these, of course, Ms. Sugar Plum are mouth-watering if I may say so. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm really surprised that the sundae version didn't make you slimmer...yeah I guess you'll have to try deep frying.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hmmm....reading your blog makes me both fat and diabetic...luckily your funny as hell, so it totally makes up for it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That looks deelish and I love that you ingredient list is simple and short. But oh yes, I'd have to have it as a sundae also.

  50. Since I love cakes and cookies a cookie diet would be the one for me!!!! I'll let you know when the results are in!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. funny! i love the way you think...definitely go with the ice cream..but oh well. cookies will definitely make my brain thinner cos all that sugar will just fry my brain and it'd be completely useless except for telling my tastebuds what to do! :D

    ReplyDelete

  53. My son could quite happily go on a diet like this, he has a serious sweet tooth, The blondie topped with ice-cream looks so delicious!!
