Gluten Free Butterfinger Bars

                                 Butterfinger Bars

     My goodness, I'm so sorry if you have been waiting for a new recipe, first I  was really sick; now this past week my sweet, mother in law passed away, and  I have to have surgery the beginning of March.  Wow, it must really come in three's :(   My sweet mother in law, it was such a blessing for her; she had had some really serious health problems for the past few years, she is in a much better place.   
     Don't give up on me, I am baking, I just need to go have a little repair job from some Brain Surgery 6 yrs ago, so wish me luck that the third time is the charm!
     Now onto the Bars, these Butterfinger Bars are quick, easy and really fun to eat!  I like to try and mix things up, and not always make chocolate and Nutella, so why not add some Peanut Butter in the mix?  I just happened to have a giant bag of candy laying around my house, so I thought, "why not?!"  If you like Butterfingers, then you definitely need to give these a try!  Thanks for all of your support, help in keeping me on my toes and the kindness sent my way!  Happy Baking, Natalie

Adapted from-Sweet Pea's Kitchen

-3/4 cup softened butter
-2 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
-3 large eggs
-1 tsp pure vanilla extract
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp baking soda
-2 1/2 cups Pamela's Baking flour
-1 1/2 cups chopped Butterfinger
-1/2 cup chocolate chunks

-Preheat the oven to 350*,bake for 42-45 minutes, or until the center is not giggly anymore, (it will puff up pretty high, but is settles down and looks nice)
-Beat the butter and sugar together, until smooth, then add the eggs and mix for 1 minute.
-Next add the vanilla, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix well and scrape down the sides.  
-Then add in the flour, mix it in, then add the 1/2 cup chocolate chunks and 1 cup Butterfinger chunks, mix just until combined.
- Use a 9x13 inch pan, spray the bottom with Pam, and then use Parchment paper and line it, it makes them look really pretty( they will turn out if you don't) Spread the batter on the bottom of the pan, I spray my hands with Pam or a spatula, it makes it so much easier to spread it( we know how thick and sticky it is).  Then sprinkle the rest of the Butterfinger on the top.
-Cool completely before cut them into bars. Enjoy!!
