Butterfinger Cookies . . . soft and chewy peanut butter cookies loaded with chunks of Butterfinger. A perfect cookie for peanut butter lovers.
If you’re a regular reader, you probably know that I am a huge peanut butter fan. I actually have toast with peanut butter for breakfast several days a week, and I am one of those people who actually likes celery with peanut butter. 😉
Of course I love baking with peanut butter, and I’m always up for trying a new recipe that involves peanut butter, especially if there is chocolate involved.
I tweaked my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe to come up with these addicting little treats. The Butterfinger adds a yummy crunch, and the chocolate gets all nice and gooey. Seriously, such a delicious cookie!
I used the Butterfinger baking bits for these cookies. They are so handy because they come pre-chopped. But you can of course crush Butterfinger candy bars if you can’t find the baking bits.
Either way, you are going to want a tall glass of milk with these cookies. They are rich and delicious, and so hard to resist!
