Butterfinger Chunkies

This is my family's favorite cookie recipe. The combination of chopped up Butterfingers and chunky peanut butter is soooooo good!

Not wanting to waste an egg, I was tempted to just use one whole egg rather than the two eggs whites. I ended up mixing up the recipe as directed and I'm glad I did--I can only think it was the egg whites that were responsible for the wonderful soft and chewy texture of this cookie. Because the candy bar chunks melt during baking, some of the cookies end up somewhat misshapen, but they're so peanut buttery delicious I would hardly say it matters.

These were a huge hit at our house and my mom even asked me for the recipe. Besure to not over bake them though or they will get tough. Other things I discovered you have to leave them on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before you move them to a cookie rack to finish cooling. Do not leave large chucks of candy on the outside of the dough balls or they will not work well. Do not eat while still hot or the candy will burn you, warm is good though. I also ended up with closer to five dozen rather than two so prepare to make a lot.

New Favorite Cookie Alert! I doubled this recipe (10 Butterfingers!) and I'm glad I did because I would have cried if the guys ate all of these while I'm at work tomorrow, but now I'm also a little nervous because I can't stop eating them and there might not be any left by the time I go to work tomorrow and they know I made a double batch so that would be pretty embarassing. Mine turned out a little flat, but I like flat cookies, so thanks for the recipe!!! UPDATE 3-19: I bought a CASE of Butterfingers yesterday and I'm getting down with this recipe again today. I forgot to mention in my earlier review that you need to let these guys cool on the baking sheet or they will fall apart. Thanks! :)
