Butterfinger Blondies

This is another one of the recipes I found on Pinterest. We had a friend from Utah stay with us one night last week, and thought it would be fun to try these out when he arrived. They were excellent!
1 c butter
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp coarse sea salt
2 c coarsely chopped Butterfinger Bars (approx 16 “Fun Size” bars)
Butterfinger pieces for topping
Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugars together. Add the vanilla and eggs until mixed.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to mixture.

Stir in chopped Butterfinger pieces.

Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray. Spread dough in pan, and bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool completely. Top with frozen yogurt and additional candy pieces.

Comments from the cook: The original recipe (found here) calls for a buttercream frosting on top, but my general preference is that frosting live on top of CAKE. :) So we topped these blondies with frozen yogurt and extra candy pieces, and they were delicious.

The texture of the Butterfinger candy softens and disappears in the bars during baking, so adding them on top brings back the texture you expect from a Butterfinger dessert...a step I wouldn't recommend skipping.

I undercooked these just a bit, and they fell after baking. If cooked for the full 25 minutes, they will be quite a bit thicker.
