So, I made these while we were hosting applicants as well for our graduate student dinner potluck. Its similar to the faculty potluck, but this dinner gives a time for applicants to only mingle with graduate students. I saw these on Pinterest and decided I had to make them. Though my fiance told me that if you do not like butterfingers, you may not be fond of them. Though I was never a fan of butterfingers but thought they were delicious!
Also, if you are a big chocolate person, you will still love this becuase of all the crushed butterfingers (including their outer chocolate layer ;) ). I personally also thought they had too much icing (as I followed the recipe) but others loved it, so depending on how much of an icing person you are, I would adjust the recipe. This is definitely not a semi-homemade receipe but it was not to hard to make and definitely worth it.
1 c. butter of 2 sticks butter softened
1 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
16 crushed "fun size" butterfinger bars
1/2 c. butter of 1 stick softened
1/2 c. vegetable shortening (aka. Crisco)
2 1/2 c. powerdered sugar
4 crushed "fun size" butterfingers
Enjoy your butterfinger overload,
