Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger Cookies…


Good Thursday morning!

I am in Ohio right now freezing my tail off in the middle of a Smuckers Factory tour and a whole bunch of other cool stuff with some other bloggers. Thanks Smuckers Family for sending me!! I’ll be sure to share pictures when I get back 🙂

I’ll leave you today with one of my all time favorite cookies. Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger! Oh my, these are pure heaven. Crushed Butterfinger bars are so incredible in cookies. Trust me, these are worth every single calorie! Hope you all enjoy 🙂



Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger Cookies!

1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder)
2 tsps. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

2 Full size Butterfinger Bars, crushed

1 1/2 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips

. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and use a cookie sheet with a silpat liner.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until well combined.

3. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients then stir in crushed butterfinger and chocolate chips. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

4. Bake for 9-11 minutes, should still be soft in center. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

3 dozen cookies


Have a wonderful weekend!! See you all soon with more cookin’!

    That looks like a good chocolate cookie. I am really struggling to find a soft, chewy and fluffy recipe. A lot of times they are very flat. I’ll give yours a go.

    Fun to be touring Smuckers. I just tried some of their Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Topping. It’s good!

    And these cookies–yum! I’d raid the 4 boy’s Halloween buckets for Butterfingers, but they are a favorite of a few of theirs, so I’d probably get in trouble! 😉

    Hi Jenny,

    I just wanted to let you know that I just made these tonight and had to share the recipe on my blog – it will be posting tomorrow and I made sure to give you credit for such a great concoction. I did make several changes to the original recipe (just because I wanted to sneak in twice as many candy bars – LOL!) and play around a bit.

    Thanks so much for a great recipe to work with! We really enjoyed them!

    My daughter LOVES chocolate, so when I found this recipe I knew we had to try it. These cookies are so chewy and fudgy. This is a great cookie dough and I can’t wait to try other crushed candy bars in it. Thanks for sharing and I love your site.

    ivoryhut says:

    Chocolate and Butterfingers? Those are two favorites in my house! And cookies are the most popular food group. I’ve got to try these at home!

  37. 37

    I find Butterfingers addictive already, but am certain that I wouldn’t be able to eat just one when incorporated into fun cookies like these.

    I think that what you published made a bunch of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid, but what if you added a headline that
    grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger Cookies…
    – Picky Palate is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click.
    Youu might add a video or a related pic orr two to grab readers interested about what
    you’ve written. Just my opinion, it mmight
    bring your website a little livelier.

    Many persons who are not used to the world wide web, or maybe are only
    exploring the possibility to start an online business question if it
    is really important to their success to get a blog. Many individuals that
    are looking for ways to save money have discovered out precisely how
    easy it really is once you buy generic. Writing blog posts
    might be a method to channel knowing about it and creativity with all the world.
