Loaded BUTTERFINGER® Dark Brownies
Loaded BUTTERFINGER® Dark Brownies are a delicious and easy treat to spoil yourself with!
Hey guys!! Today I am going to share with you the absolute best brownies I have ever made! But first I want to tell you what makes these brownies so spectacular!
So the other day I came across these BUTTERFINGER® Dark Bars and I thought I had died and gone to heaven!! I am a dark chocolate junkie, I love it. It is so rich and full of flavor and complements so many flavors so anytime I see a dark chocolate-y candy bar or dessert that is what I go for!
I also love BUTTERFINGERS®. I remember getting them trick-or-treating when I was little and after my first bite of that crispety, crunchety BUTTERFINGER® I was hooked! I wasn’t trading those fun-size bites of yumminess for anything! Now I just steal from my kid’s Halloween buckets lol.
I picked up a few bars to keep in the bathroom because that is where I go when I need a break from my wildlings and give myself a sweet treat I so desperately deserve after wrangling them all day. I got to thinking though about how much my sister loves brownies and how I bet BUTTERFINGER® Brownies would be amazing, not just any brownies but Loaded BUTTERFINGER® Dark Brownies with a thick peanut butter cream frosting and tons of BUTTERFINGER® Dark in the batter, in the frosting, on top, everywhere!
I picked up a box of dark chocolate brownie mix, because let’s be real who has time to make brownies from scratch, not this mama lol.
Once in the kitchen I cranked up the 90s station and got to baking!
I think the best part of baking with these BUTTERFINGER® Dark Bars is sneaking bites. These bars are so good, I might have to put some in my other hidden candy spot (my nightstand for prime midnight snacking lol).
Once the brownies had cooled I whipped up an easy, decadent frosting of butter, cream cheese, vanilla powdered sugar and more BUTTERFINGER® Dark.
After I loaded that onto the cool brownies I added, yup you guessed it, more BUTTERFINGER®.
These brownies were loaded, maybe even overloaded with peanut buttery deliciousness and I could not wait to taste them!!
Let me tell you they are so good I think I blacked out!!
These are the absolute best brownies I have ever made. Dark chocolate-y goodness and peanut butter are a match made in heaven. The crispy crunch of the BUTTERFINGER® put these brownies over the top.
Loaded BUTTERFINGER® Dark Brownies are the perfect easy dessert anyone can make. Thanks to starting with a box mix these come together in minutes and with the addition of homemade frosting and that amazing crunch these really are the best brownies you can make!
So run to the store and stock up on plenty of BUTTERFINGER® Dark Bars for treating yourself and for making these brownies!!
