What a great memory from my childhood in the 50 and 60's. I loved both the Butterfinger and Baby Ruth cookies that you could purchase at th grocery store. Now I can make my own.

Need a Boost

by j. jenn , NY on Jul. 2009

These were good but needed a boost. I used 16 fun size bars and chilled the dough overnite. I baked them for only 10 minutes. To keep them chewy I put them in a sealed container with bread. I have made them twice and I love the idea of using Butterfinger Candy--Who doesn't love a Butterfinger, right? Great recipe--thanks for sharing this one!

It took me a little while to master this recipe although the cookies are very simple to make. They turned out delicious and my boyfriend just keeps asking me to bake them again. Butterfinger is just the best candy bar ever!

Me and my friend, Samantha, baked these cookies for my Bf, Myles' Birthday. I am 13, and Smantha is 12. We enjoyed baking this so much we made them 3 times more in 2 days! We had to use all of our allowance to buy the butterfinger bars, though it was worth it. They were fantastic!
