Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cookies are amazingly soft and chewy and full of crunchy peanut butter and chunks of Butterfinger candy bars! Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cookies take your basic peanut butter cookie to a whole new level! I got this recipe from a friend a long time ago and kept putting it off because I’m not a huge Butterfinger fan. My kids kept asking when I was going to finally try these so I caved and I was amazed at how delicious these cookies are!

The Butterfinger candy bits go so well in the peanut butter cookie – even for those of us who don’t typically love this type of candy bar! The recipe calls for crunchy peanut butter which is also incredible – I love the crunch of the nuts and the candy bar bits contrasted with the softness of the cookie. Soft and chewy cookies are my favorite and these have the perfect texture and consistency!

  1. So I was all set to make these – and I thought I had the butterfinger chips but when I looked lo and behold not there!! So it’s just me and my husband, and I know I didn’t eat them, asked my husband and he said heck no! But for some reason I’m not real sure!! I did go ahead and make them with peanut butter chips — yum!! Next time I’ll use the butterfinger!!

    • HA! I’m glad you enjoyed them. We have that problem too– disappearing chocolate chips and such… my kids say it’s NEVER them, but I’m not quite sure! 😉
