I love this recipe!! It is easy to adapt for other holidays too, just use the mini versions of the butterfingers that are around that holiday. Everyone who has eaten any has wanted the recipe!!!

This was so delicious! If you like peanut butter you have to try this recipe. The only problem was that I had to remove the cookies from the muffin pan before the chocolate had rehardened, and the chocolate got a little bit squished.

Very tasty and very easy. The tough part was keeping family and friends away from the candies before I made the cookies! I used both Butterfinger hearts and some dark chocolate hearts, and they worked equally well. Definitely a keeper.

I made these for my daughter's middleschool dance. The PTA had asked parents to make finger foods. I could not find the Butterfinger Hearts anywhere so I substituted with another pnut chocolate heart candy. They ended up being taller and wouldn't lay flat in the mini muffin cups so I put them smack in the center with the point down in the middle of the cookie. They still looked great and the kids loved them! I would definately make these again...maybe next time I'll be able to find the Butterfinger hearts!
