Butterfinger Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

You guys. These cookies. Ugh. I have no words, so take a look at these pictures… then go make some.

I made them for the first time a few weeks ago while visiting Brian- I was in a baking mood, and he had homework to do, so cookie making it was! I love stuffing cookies and when I saw a giant box of Butterfingers, I knew they had to go into inside some soft baked peanut butter cookies.  I took the recipe I use for my death by peanut butter cookie sandwiches and played with the leavening ratios a bit, adding extra cornstarch and baking soda to keep the cookies thick and soft!

Most cookies are best warm- but not these ones. Because of the texture of the butterfingers, the cookies are best once they have cooled and the candy has had some time to “re-crisp”- soft butterfingers aren’t that great.

One more thing- I used just chopped up butterfingers candy; that’s what worked best.  But I’m sure you could use butterfinger bites- I would cut them in half  though.

    Holy moly! Are these for real? I love Butterfingers and I love peanut butter cookies, but had never thought to combine them. Thank you!
