50. Butterfinger Blondies

Back in November, my youth group had a pie auction. It wasn’t just pie, it included all sorts of baked goods. I contributed two items, a French Silk Pie and Butterfinger Blondies. The Butterfinger Blondies were another Pinterest recipe. They were very yummy. The icing was almost too sweet, but overall, they were delish!
