Butterfinger Cookies

Need something to do with left over Halloween candy??

If you have some Butterfinger candy bars sitting around that you want to get rid of this is a great recipe, just chop them up in a food processor...if you don't have any candy bars or a food processor you can always pick up a bag of Butterfinger Baking Bits to use.

This is a fairly straight forward cookie recipe and not very difficult to pull off.

Cream the sugar and butter....and add the flour

Then fold in the candy

Scoop onto a baking sheet....

Bake, cool, eat!

The recipe cranked out about 40 cookies using my medium disher

Here is the recipe.

Collect the following stuff:
  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 room temperature large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 10 ounces of Butterfinger bits (1 bag if going that route)
Do this with all that stuff:
  • Cream the butter and the sugar
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating to combine
  • Add in the baking soda and the salt, beating to combine
  • Add flour and continue mixing until everything is combined
  • fold in the Butterfinger bits
  • Scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before moving to a cooling rack
  • If you don't plan on eating them all right away just store in an airtight container or ziplock bag
