Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter (unwrap first)
  • 1 box light brown sugar (the whole thing)
  • 14 teaspoon salt (enough to fill a 3/4 inch box end wrench)
  • 2 eggs, uncooked but open (remove shell)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (enough to fill a 1/2 inch deep socket, hold finger over hole in bottom)
  • 2 cups flour or 2 cups a tall beer
  • 1 crushed Butterfinger bar, any size but bigger is better (crush lightly with a clean hammer)


  1. Melt butter over low heat in metal pan (heat gun is OK, but skip the torch).
  2. Remove from heat and add sugar and salt.
  3. Mix well (beaters work well in hand drill variable speed on slow or have shop towels handy).
  4. Add eggs, one at a time.
  5. Beat well.
  6. Add vanilla and mix.
  7. Add flour and mix.
  8. Blend in crushed Butterfinger (it's OK to eat some because Butterfingers are really good).

  10. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
  11. Do not overbake.
  12. Allow to cool, cut into four Chewy Chevy Big Blocks and share with three friends.
