Butterfinger Cookies

Jump to recipe


Making homemade cookies can be a twice weekly occurrence at my house.  School lunches and (multiple) after school snacks can cause a batch of cookies to disappear within 24 hours.  Let’s not even talk about how many two teenage boys can eat in one sitting!  Since I do get tired of the classic chocolate chip (Yes, I eat my share of the cookies, too!) these are a fun twist on classic cookies that your family will enjoy.  Just be sure to hide a few for yourself.
