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.


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.

I have only recently been introduced to wonderful crispy texture of butter fingers but have become a number one fan. These look addictive!

Averie @ Averie Cooks

I loveeeee butterfingers! Such a great classic candy and I’ve never baked them into cookies, only in no-bake bars. This is an awesome recipe and totally pinned!

Karen @ The Food Charlatan

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!

Tina Hoffman

Oooh, these look scrumptious!

Rochelle @ Oh So Sweet Baker

I wish they sold butterfinger in the UK that isn’t overly expensive so I can add it in abundance in these cookies

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

Laura @ Lauras Baking Talent

Combining two of my favorite things… butterfingers and cookies. Can’t get much better than this, thanks for sharing 🙂


Just made them and they are yummy!!


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.


Butterfingers are easily one of my favorite candy bars. These look so buttery and perfect I cannot wait to try them!

Teresa Webber

Guess what I am adding to my grocery list today! Can’t wait to make these .

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:

Renee @ Awesome on $20

I don’t think I’d be able to stop eating them either. Butterfinger was my favorite candy as a kid.


These look crazy addicting! I think I would eat a dozen as well.


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!


are butter finger candies a honeycomb bar covered in chocolate like the UK Crunchier Bars or like the Hoky Poky Bars here in NZ please ????

Debbie Williams

I would like some good low sugar gluten free receipt


I made these this afternoon and cannot stop eating them! They are freaking fantastic. Hubby and I give them 1000 stars lol.


I will definitely be making these. For my cookie swap in december. They sound delicious


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!!!!
