Butterfinger Maple Bars

Quick and easy homemade maple bars topped with a drizzle of chocolate and chopped Butterfingers for an out of this world breakfast treat!

The last donut recipe I posted was the Maple Bars recipe that this one uses. The original recipe creator used leftover maple bars and just warmed them in the microwave and added the chocolate and Butterfingers. I don't like maple bars typically, but I enjoy this homemade version with refrigerated buttermilk biscuits. I knew the addition of Butterfingers and chocolate would be insanely good and, of course, it was and the whole family loved them!

What you need:
For the icing:
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. maple extract
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
For the donuts:
  • 1 tube refrigerated biscuits
  • Vegetable oil for frying
For the topping:
  • 4 full-size Butterfinger candy bars, chopped
  • 2 squares Candiquik
  1. For the icing: Melt butter, brown sugar, and milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cook while stirring for 3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. While icing cools, heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees.
  5. Stretch biscuits gently into logs.
  6. Fry a few logs at a time until golden brown on each side. Remove to a wire rack with a paper towel underneath it.
  7. After the 15 minutes has passed, add powdered sugar, salt, and maple extract to saucepan and whisk until smooth.
  8. Dip each donut into icing or pour icing on each.
  9. Melt Candiquik squares in microwave until smooth.
  10. Drizzle over the top of the donuts. Immediately sprinkle chopped Butterfingers on top. Gently press in, if needed.

Refrigerated biscuits are great for making quick donuts and these Strawberry Shortcake Donuts are one of my favorite quick donut recipes EVER. With a little more effort but still a fun recipe, you can have these awesome Baked Cereal and Milk Donuts from Center Cut Cook.
