Butterfinger candy and cookies all in one? Yes, please!
I recently came across these new Nestle Butterfinger Baking Bits and knew I had to try them out. Hubby is a cookie and candy monster so these seemed like they would be right up his alley.
All I did was follow the recipe that was included on the back of the bag. I was glad to see that I already had all the ingredients in my pantry so I was set to go. They are not only easy to make but they are delicious as well.
My Butterfinger cookies turned out so soft with just a bit of crisp at the very outer edge. They have a light peanut butter flavor to them and the Butterfinger candy bits stay a bit crunchy.
These cookies are one of my faves that I’ve ever made. The peanut butter taste isn’t overwhelming like a traditional peanut butter cookie. Just a soft and fluffy cookie with a buttery, light peanut butter flavor. A definite must try!

That cookies looks Delicious! thanks for sharing the recipe. Should try it!
Our dough came out super crumbly! So we added a bit of heavy cream to hold them together and that worked much better. They definitely didn’t turn out like the picture. Hehe oh well, they taste good still!
I’m sorry to hear that you had issues with the dough. Glad to hear that at least they still tasted good.
