Chocolate Dipped Butterfinger Cookies

You know I’m always baking up cookies around my house. ¬†To celebrate back to school for my boys, I made a special chocolate dipped cookie that could not be more perfectly sweet. ¬†Arizona always seems to start school so early in the summer, but we were all ready for our school season to start up again. ¬†It was a great first week! ¬†Here we are already on week 2.

Hope you enjoy these fancy cookies that look great on your table for any occasion!

I love this little bag of Butterfinger Baking Bits. ¬†You can find these at most Target locations, however it’s pretty easy to crush your own Butterfingers if you can’t find this bag.

Add your bits right to your cookie dough.

There’s something magical that happens when you bake Butterfingers in cookies, gets that peanut buttery gooey texture. ¬†So good!

    Today I made the chocolate dipped butterfinger cookies. They flopped terribly!!!! I followed your recipe to a t. Are you sure the ingredients are correct? They were flatter then a pancake and VERY greasy. I ended up throwing expensive ingredients out. I also made your lemon curd cookies. These too were very greasy and did not raise very much. The flavor is good, but I wouldnt make them again. If you can give me some insight on what I did wrong I would appreciate it. Thank you.

      She doesn’t seem to reply to comments. What kind of pudding did you use? I’ve been wanting to try this recipe but I wasn’t sure if it was instant or regular. Just a random comment about flat/greasy cookies, this has happened to me before when the batter got too warm so now I chill all my cookies before dropping them. Also, if a recipe doesn’t have enough flour they come out flat. Hope you can find a recipe that works for you and is yummy too! =)

    Followed the recipe exactly even let the dough chill in the fridge for 35 minutes. And they baked completely flat and super thin. Batter went in the garbage
