Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled Butterfingers divided [about 12 snack size or 4 full size]

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spritz a metal non stick 9 x 13 inch pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  • On the stove top, melt together the butter and brown sugar. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes until the sugar is dissolved, then remove to a mixing bowl to cool.
  • After 5-10 minutes, beat the eggs into the brown sugar-butter mixture, one at a time.
  • Add the vanilla. If the mixture is just warm to the touch, it's fine to add the eggs.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to the wet ingredients.
  • Beat with a hand mixer for 2-3 minutes until fully combined.
  • Mix in 1 cup of crushed Butterfingers by hand.
  • Pour into the prepared pan, and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of crushed Butterfingers on top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes. Test the center with a toothpick before removing from the oven. Look for moist crumbs, not a clean toothpick. Do not over bake.
  • Cool to room temperature in the pan on a wire rack before cutting.
