Butterfingers have been a long time favorite. I remember walking to the card shop from school and buying a butterfinger candy bar for 5 cents. Yes, it shows my age.
I had a box of butterfingers and wanted a "few" but really didn't want the whole box. Perfect recipe to get rid of the temptation.
I crushed up the candy in the cusinart, a pulse here, a pulse there and ready to add.
I had to try them before I gave them away. I can't give someone something that isn't tasty,right?
These are good, not overly sweet and chewy as claimed.
1 3/4 cups a/p flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, softened
1 large egg
8 fun size butterfinger candy bars, chopped
- Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
- Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in egg until just combined.
- Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in butterfinger pieces by hand. The dough will be very thick. Drop by slightly rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool and enjoy!
