Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies

November 27, 2017Teresa

Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies are the BEST! Oh, my, these outrageous cookies are soooo scrumptious. They’re also terrific for Christmas cookie exchanges and holiday parties. Believe me, you will be cleaned out to the very last crumb!

These delicious cookies start with my favorite Mrs. Field’s copycat recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. But instead of using all chocolate chips, I also added a package of Butterfinger Baking Bits! Oh yeah. Talk about terrific. These cookies have it all. They have just a little bit of peanut butter and a lot of chocolate. What a delight!

John and I baked up cookies for our neighborhood this year – just under 160 homes. We included a baker’s dozen of different cookies, plus a copy of the Christmas Code. It’s a wonderful devotional book for Christmas time on the story and meaning of Christmas. So I’ve been baking, baking, baking for two weeks straight! Every day. All hours of the day. Yes, I’m tired….:)

These amazing cookies went in the bags for our neighbors. But I also made enough extras to add to our regular gift giving for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year too. That “naughty or nice” list includes co-workers, family, friends, church friends and folks in our Friday night care group. We’ve already had people contact us from a former church who were wondering if they made the “nice” list this year. 🙂 Alas! We cannot bake for everyone and I have to cut down somewhere. 🙁

When you’re baking 250-300 cookies of 15-20 different kinds of cookies it becomes a production. Plus, we bag, seal and label every cookie so that adds a good bit of time. I’ve included three different cookies this year that are gluten free, but this is NOT one of them. Yes, we love this time of year and after this coming week is over I finally get to relax. Yay.

If you’re looking for a cookie to wow your friends this holiday season, give these luscious Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies a try. Everyone will be drooling. And you’ll have to make a few extra batches….;)

Bake at 350 about 13-15 minutes or until done. I was baking four racks at a time with 24 cookies per cookie sheet, so my cookies took about 20-24 minutes to bake completely. I rotated the racks every eight minutes.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla, salt, baking powder and baking soda with an electric mixer until smooth.
  3. Stir in flour, Butterfinger bits and chocolate chips with a wooden spoon to combine.
  4. Shape dough with hands into golf ball-sized dough balls and place a couple inches apart on greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until edges are light brown.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: There are times when I’m making a double batch of this recipe where I have to add an additional quarter to half cup of flour in order to be able to roll the dough into balls. If the dough gets too sticky. Add a little flour to the batter.

NOTE: I was baking 4 racks at a time with 24 cookies per cookie sheet. My cookies took longer to bake – about 20-24 minutes. I rotated the racks every eight minutes.

    What do you do if you can’t find butterfinger baking chips.

      Hi, Sharon. I would substitute chopped Butterfinger bars. A little more work, but still the same delicious taste.
