When it comes to candy bars, the Butterfingers are one of my favorites. Since I love to bake cookies, I thought it would only make sense to make a cookie that has some Butterfinger in it as well as some of my other ingredients I like to bake with.
Here is a recipe for some yummy nutty Butterfinger cookies….
