Crispy Butterfinger Cookies

This week I have been sharing recipes to help you use up your leftover Halloween candy. So far we’ve played around with Snickers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I made Peanut Butter Snickers Brownies and a Peanut Butter Banana Bundt Cake with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Today Butterfinger candy bars are the star, so dig through your candy and pull out the Butterfingers. Hopefully, nobody laid a finger on your Butterfingers because you will want to make these Crispy Butterfinger Cookies.

Butterfingers are crispy and crunchy so I wanted to create a cookie that kept their texture. I added oatmeal and Rice Krispies cereal to the cookie dough to keep the crispy/crunchy texture going. I also added in chocolate chips because you can never have enough chocolate:)

I love a good candy bar every now and then, but can usually resist. The Halloween candy bowl doesn’t usually tempt me until I add the candy to cookies. I have no self control when it comes to cookies:) So I ate one cookie to make sure they were ok for all of you…and then I ate another and another. These Crispy Butterfinger cookies were thoroughly taste tasted by yours truly and I highly recommend you make them. There is no better way to enjoy a Butterfinger, in my cookie obsessed opinion:)

A few other recipes to help you use up your Halloween candy:

Crispy Butterfinger Cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 ¼ cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped Butterfinger candy bars

Instructions
 

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Combine butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until smooth and creamy, about two minutes. On low, add in egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
  • 3. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the oats, cereal, chocolate chips, and Butterfinger chunks. Don’t over mix. You don’t want to crush the cereal too much.
  • 4. Scoop dough into balls, about a tablespoon each, and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown, the centers should still be soft. Allow cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet. Move cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.

  1. I’m so excited to see this post. I just bought a ton of 90% off candy at Target and now I definitely know what to do with the Butterfingers!! They look great!

  2. We made these cookies as a family this past Sunday afternoon, using up our Halloween stash. So much crunchy fun – EVERYONE loved them! I couldn’t resist having one for “breakfast dessert” the following morning. Delicious!

  3. Love your idea of adding extra crisp to these cookies! We have several butterfingers left and they’re my favorite so I can’t wait to try this cookie recipe!

  4. Butterfinger = favorite cookie
    Thanks for this recipe. I am sure I will make and not be able to stop eating them!

  5. My hubby loves Butterfingers… I’d go make these cookies for him right now, except that he ate all of the leftover candy bars in no time! Perhaps I’ll have to go pick up a few more bags of candy so I can surprise him with some of these cookies! Thanks for the great recipe idea!

  6. My 8 year old begged me to make these (while she is sick, no less!) and so I raided her candy stash for all her butterfingers. They turned out great…we’ll wait for the final verdict when she’s feeling better. I added coconut to the last pan and I think that made them even better!

  7. I love Butterfingers, but I never ever think to get them. I always get Butterfinger Blizzards at Dairy Queen, so I reallyyyy can’t wait to try these!!

  8. My cookies did not come out looking like yours. They cane out a little flat, and like the sugar melted. What did I possibly do wrong? I followed it correctly.
