Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger…cookies. Yep that’s right, in an apparent flashback to my 90’s childhood I’m embracing these peanutty candy bars once again. Only this time I’m not eating candy bar after candy bar while channeling Bart Simpson. Instead I’m chopping up Butterfingers and adding them to cookies while I channel Betty Crocker. Oh how the times have changed.
These chewy cookies were a spur of the moment concoction resulting from an unplanned trip to our local Target. Sandwiched in between the rows of Halloween costumes and Christmas decorations (I know, early right?) there were aisles of fairly priced Halloween candy, including our childhood favorite: Butterfingers. So I picked up a couple of bags and headed home. Once home, the rain pounding on the windows and the warmth of a fire brought on a baking mood that I just couldn’t shake. However,with only a few hours before I had to head out of the house for our dinner reservations I was short on time. So whats a girl to do? Suddenly it came to me: Baking mood + short on time + Butterfingers = Butterfinger Cookies. It was the perfect way to spend my afternoon and the perfect excuse to skip dessert at dinner that night.
