Today I had to swing by my church (of course, school in session) to get a meal to a woman who needs cooking help .... I asked her grandson to help me and while we were loading from my truck to his car - he was helping himself to the cookie box. lol.
Then he said he wanted to see what the Snicker cookie was like with a Butterfinger.  Wow - good idea.
The dough is made and "resting" in the refrigerator, the Butterfingers are unwrapped and set to go.

Nancy can you share your Snicker/Butterfingers cookie recipes with all of us?  My hubby favorite candy bars are snickers and Butterfingers?  Please make my man a happy camper!

  It would be great if you shared your recipe as my husband's favorite candy bar is a BUTTERFINGER.

Well, sure, but first I want to say I wasn't happy with the Butterfinger sub for the Snickers.   Snickers mini come in neat little squares that are easy to 'hide' in the cookie dough for each cookie. 

Butterfingers small bars are just too long so I had to chop each one in two.  They are crisp bars so many of them shattered instead of just splitting.  And the 1/2 bar was still pretty big and it had sharp edges on the end.   The Butterfinger did end up OK but required more work.

SNICKERS BAR COOKIES
4 doz. --  ungreased -- 350* -- 12 - 15 minutes
  (in my oven I cook just 12 minutes, no longer)
and I use parchment so I don't worry about greased or ungreased.  I LOVE parchment.
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 sticks softened butter (1 cup)
2 beaten eggs
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups flour
14 oz bag miniature Snickers  (I use more)

Cream sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter.
Add vanilla and beaten eggs. 
Combine dry ingredients and add to wet.  Mix well.
Cut Snickers mini bars in half.  (I use whole bar - do not cut in half)
Wrap dough around each piece of Snickers forming a ball.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet 2" apart. 
Bake at 350* 12 - 15 minutes until light golden brown.
Cool on sheet 2 minutes - transfer to wire rack.

To get the correct number and size cookies - I form all 48 balls THEN
put the Snickers bar inside each one and form into ball again.

Well that answers my question of how did they turn out. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Butterfinger is my son's favorite candy bar and I just so happen have a few bars saved for him. Guess I'll be making cookies after work!

Irma -- as I've said this before.... The Butterfinger jr bars are way too big and too crisp to do this easily.  They did bake beautifully (no seepage, thank goodness) and the kids loved them. 
Maybe what I'll do next time is give each child a bag of them and tell them to return all the "good" halves to me.

Elsie -- do try this great cookie with any small candy bar you have on hand.  Those little Butterfinger eggs they made for Easter worked especially well.   I stocked up on bags of them.

Nancy,  I just printed your cookie recipe.  My stepson loves butterfinger candy bars. He turns
40 at the end of July.  I think that I will make these for him. I'll do a trial run before. My hubby
would like the snickers better. I like both!!  Thank you for sharing your recipe!!

Carol -- these are great cookies.  I know your family will love and appreciate them.
When you're making them, be careful that no part of the candy is sticking out of the dough.  Make certain that the candy is absolutely in the center of the ball of dough.  The candy might "leak" out of the dough .... it doesn't ruin the cookie but the candy melts on the sheet.

All the cookies I carry to church .... a kid or two will ask if there are any Butterfinger cookies.
