My favorite candy bar is a Snickers. But my hubby on the other hand loves Butterfingers! I have never been a fan of a Butterfinger. But these delicious, chewy and rich brownies may have just converted me!
I wasn’t too sure how these would turn out. Especially when a Butterfinger has flaky layers. So I had to put them to the test and try them out. WOW. They were perfectly moist and chewy. And the Butterfinger bits melted inside were the bomb. We had friends over that night and everyone loved these delicious chewy Butterfinger brownies. If a Butterfinger is your favorite candy bar, then make these delicious brownies. It is the best of both worlds!
