Butterfinger, Milky Way Chocolate Chunk Cookies…

I don’t know what’s wrong with me, I keep making cookies this week. This one in particular is deadly according to my husband. Once you have one, there’s no stopping at that point! The Butterfinger chunks give the entire cookie a sweet peanutty flavor and the Milky Way makes them nice and chewy. I had a bunch of candy left over from Easter and am sooo glad I did. Talk about a good cookie! Enjoy everyone!

Butterfinger, Milky Way Chocolate Chunk Cookies

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 mini butterfinger (fun size) or 1 1/2 full size candy bars
6 mini milky ways quartered or 1 full size candy bar
1/2 Cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until well combined. Slowly add in eggs and vanilla until well mixed.

2. Place flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix to combine. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the candy bars and chocolate chips until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat lined baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until done to your liking. I take them out right at 9 minutes for a softer cookie. Let cool for 5-7 minutes on baking sheet to set up. Transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

    I made these cookies this afternoon. They are awesome!!!! Next on the list, your peanut butter egg/cup cookies (sadly, the eggs are gone so I’ll have to substitute with the pb cups). Thanks for sharing your amazing recipes! I love your blog!

  6. I have finally met my sole mate baker. I thought I was the only one who liked to make the ooey, gooey, super rich, over the top goodies, but apparently not. Love, love, love your ideas and have already tried a few. Keep up the good work!

    I can't say enough how impressed I was with these cookies! I made them for a Memorial Day bbq and was surprised at how quickly they disappeared. They are the perfect amount of sweet and chewy, and look great. I've made them 3 times now, and they have turned out consistently delicous. I loved even the base recipe and would love to try other treats baked into it.

  9. Never thought I'd be a soccer mom!

    I finally made these Saturday and they were fabulous. The first batch out of the oven were gone within 5 minutes after I put them on the cooling racks. They were PERFECT. Thanks for the recipe.

    oh wow! Butterfingers are only like my favourite candy, why hadn’t I thought of putting them into a cookie? I guess that’s why the food blogging world is amazing, so I can find enlightenment in blogs like yours 🙂
