Butterfinger Meltaways

Teresa Ambra

Oh my! Another melt-in-your-mouth kind of cookie. This one is filled with Butterfinger Candy Bars. One delightful yum. These unbelievable Butterfinger Melltaways are absolutely outstanding! In fact, these cookies are so irresistible you’ll be swooning over every one. 🙂

I wasn’t planning on baking Butterfinger Meltaways for our annual Christmas Cookie Extravaganza give-away this year. But I had so many bags of Butterfingers leftover after making the Butterfinger Ooey Gooey Bars, that I wanted to do something with them. I had made a batch of Tropical Pineapple Meltaways and Cherry Meltaways this year. So I used the same basic recipe and made up about six batches of these jewels as a late addition to the rest.

I just loved the way these Butterfinger Meltaways turned out. And if you’re a Butterfinger fan, you will too! The only labor intensive part of baking this cookie is unwrapping and chopping up the Butterfinger Bars. To save time, you can easily do that the night before and put the contents in a zip-lock bag until you’re ready for them.

Butterfinger Meltaways are perfect for tailgating parties, holiday or office parties, a Christmas Cookie Exchange or any kind of potluck. The cookies simply dissolve in your mouth and are so outrageously good you won’t be able to stop at just one! If you need to cure a sweet tooth craving, Butterfinger Meltaways are just the thing. Enjoy.

    These cookies are so divine! I absolutely loved them and made them twice in a weeks’ time. I have tried them by using the original recipe and also by adding the lemon extract and peel and both versions were excellent.
