Peanut Butterfinger Cookies

Chewy Butterfinger cookies: loaded with candy bars and flavor!

Last week, on an impulse, I bought a couple bags of fun size Butterfinger candy bars. I also bought Oreos, Reese’s PB cups, and some other junk. I had no plan for these candy bars, except to maybe sneak one every now and then. But then I realized something. I’m trying to get fit, and sneaking candy bars will not help.

So I made cookies instead. Totally rational.

Chewy Butterfinger cookies: loaded with candy bars and flavor!

Peanut Butterfinger Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter, cold
  • 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 1 cup peanut butter, creamy
  • 2 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 12.5 oz bag fun size Butterfingers (about 18), chopped


  1. Beat butter, crisco, peanut butter and brown sugar until creamy. Mix in vanilla, milk and eggs. Add flour, salt and baking soda, mix thoroughly.
  2. Fold in chopped candy bars. Drop by tablespoons onto a cookie sheet, press fork into tops to make criss-cross pattern. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!

    You sound like me. The cookies have to cancel out the candy calories, right? These look delicious! :)

    I do consider all the ideas you’ve introduced
    for your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
