Butterfinger Cookies

Butterfinger Cookies..Chewy, Rich and Buttery. The perfect cookie!!

These Butterfinger Cookies are so chewy, rich, buttery and perfect. I am love!

Sometimes a cookie just makes sense.

These make sense.

Butterfinger + Cookie = Delicious anyway you look at it.

MY OTHER RECIPES

These are SUPER easy, totally straight-forward and completely perfect.

The cookie itself is chewy and sweet, and with the addition of Butterfinger, the cookies get that extra buttery kick. Trust me on this one.

I made these last week and promptly ate 3.  And by 3 I mean 12. I am a sad case and can’t be stopped.

You might have more self control than I do, so go ahead and make them. I dare you.

No frosting or chips are needed in these.  The Butterfinger does it all. Kinda like magic.

Also Butterfinger is NOT paying me to say all these nice things…although now that I think about it they totally should be.

 

Just chop up some candy bars…

You’ll need about 2 cups of chopped candy. Don’t get too hung up on exact measurements. I chopped about 11 Snack Sized Butterfinger candy bars.

The dough is simple. I used an extra egg yolk in this to amp up the chewy factor. It always works perfectly!

Bake them until the bottoms and sides are lightly brown.  You will have the perfect cookie.  Also, I used my large 3 Tbsp cookie scoop, FYI.

  1. Butterfingers are the best! They still make me think of Bart Simpson. Solid marketing right there 🙂 Also, I never thought about the fact that they are called BUTTERfingers, so yeah, bring on the buttery cookies. These looks so good Shelly!

    Oh, how I wish I had some Butterfingers on hand cause I would be making up a batch yet this evening. These look wonderful. Probably just as well that I won’t be doing any baking this evening as we are under a sever weather watch and warnings. All prepared just in case I need to take cover.
    Thank you

    GIRL! I will be making these!! Yum-my!!

    SO, does an extra egg yolk work in eery cookie recipe? I’ve never heard that before and I’ve been an avid baker for a long time!!

    Can’t wait to try ’em…definitely going into my Pinterest file too!!

      In some recipe I omit a whole egg and just use 1 egg plus the yolk and it works great… but if the dough is dry you might need to add both eggs as a recipe calls for PLUS an additional yolk. It adds a nice finish to the cookie and I use this method a lot!

    I just made a batch and have a feeling these aren’t going to last long. Shoot, I”m lucky I still had butterfingers. I thought I accidentally brought home a opened bag of butterfingers only to find out that someone at the house had gotten into them as soon as the groceries were unloaded from the car.

  6. I just made this recipe a few moments ago and they came out perfectly! Crispy, crunchy, yet soft and chewy. Sweet and salty with a hint of chocolate. I only made a minor tweak to the baking time, I left them bake for approx 12 minutes before cooling on the sheet for 3 minutes. The bottoms were absolutely PERFECT! Light golden brown, while the cookies where soft yet chewy.

    I was going to post a pic, but I wasn’t sure if it would show up:

    I wonder how many bags of butterfingers I will have to buy to actually have enough to put into the cookies?
    I can’t wait to try these!

    I don’t often comment but I made these this morning with my two year old son and they are awesome, one of the easiest and most tasty cookies I have ever eaten!!!!

    I was looking for a cookie recipe that was a little bit different and this was a great choice. The dough was really thick so I was leery at first but the cookies came out incredible. With their crispy edges and soft centers, they are a newfound favorite.
