My daughter and I made these bars as part of our holiday baking and gift giving this year. Everyone we gave them to loved them. These are the perfect thing for the chocoholic in your family. We substituted Nestle Crunch Jingles for the Butterfinger Jingles as the recipe called for. We will keep these as a part of our holiday baking for years to come.

I don't even like Butterfingers and I was practically drooling when I mixed up the ingredients. People at work were stampeding our office to get another bar. These were YUMMY.
