Butterfinger Cookies

I know, I know!  
I just told you how I was trying to lose a few pounds and look sexy for my cruise but then these little beauties came along.  Not to worry though, I only had ONE!!!  Aren't you proud of me, I am sure proud of myself--it's a record for me.  I gave the rest away to neighbors so I wasn't tempted.  Secretly I tried to keep a plate for myself but then I looked at my swimsuit hanging up and thought no way am I going to get into that thing if I keep this plate (it was only 3 cookies, come on!), so onto another neighbor it went.
PHEWW......that was close!
Anyways, if you love Butterfinger candy bars as much as I do you will love this cookie.  It's even better dipped into chocolate.  How could you go wrong with that!?! Hope you someplace to take these or someone to share them because they are so yummy and that way you fit into your swimming suit too!

Butterfinger Cookies


(click here for printable version)


1/4 c. white sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. peanut butter
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 - 3/4 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
3 butterfingers, chopped in small pieces
melting chocolate ( I use Wiltons)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well.  In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt with a whisk. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix in Butterfingers . Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove and let sit on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cookie rack. Cool completely.  

2.  Melt chocolate in microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until chocolate is smooth, but not too hot.  Dip half of the cookie in chocolate and set on wax paper until chocolate hardens.  Enjoy!

These look TO. DIE. FOR. However, since I'm eating healthier (reslutions you know) I best not. But if you don't mind, print it out and make them in say, February :). I wonder if I would get the same effect by looking at a picture of the cookie while drinking a fruit smoothie?

Thanks so much for linking up to Saturday Swap.... though I'm not sure I needed to come across this recipe. I'm also trying to pay the price for over indulgence and get ready for a trip. These look so amazing and I'm thinking I'll take your advice and make them and give most away! :-) Have a great weekend!!
