Butterfinger Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I have a dear love for peanut butter cookies. Especially when they have crushed Butterfinger and giant chocolate chunks inside. This is a great recipe to bake with your kids or just even as a late night snack. They are peanut buttery sweet and nice and chewy in the center. Yum!

Happy baking πŸ™‚

Let’s start by creaming your butter and sugars.

Mix, mix, mix!

Your peanut butter goes in next!

Add your egg.

Once well combined, time for the dry ingredients.

Β Flour, baking soda and baking powder.

I used these Fresh and Easy Belgian Milk Chocolate Bars. Use whatever chocolate you’d like πŸ™‚

Cube up your chocolate and add it to the mixer.

Add some crushed Butterfinger bars.

This dough is to die for by the way πŸ™‚

Onto the cookie sheet they go.

Take a fork and press criss cross marks into the cookie if desired.

Ahhhh, right out of the oven!

My boys got silly as they were munching these cookies, love this!

Brothers, cookies and laughs. Good times πŸ™‚

Aren’t they pretty?

They package up quite nicely for gift giving.

  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and sugars in stand or electric mixer until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add peanut butter and mix until combined. Add egg and vanilla, beating until well combined.
  3. Add flour and baking soda to the mixer following Butterfinger and chocolate chunks mixing until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart and with tines of a fork, press criss cross marks into the cookie. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until baked through. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Makes 2 dozen cookies
