Think fudge brownies mixed with Butterfinger Candy Bar chunks and smooth, creamy Reese's Peanut Butter Chips. A cookie like this is much to sinful to enjoy. So don't. Enjoy three instead. That'll help the guilt, right? It seemed to help mine.
Is it me, or are my pants fitting a bit tighter?
Butterfinger Peanut Butter Chip Fudge Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened slightly
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 Nestle Butterfinger (2.1 ounce) candy bars, roughly chopped
1 cup Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a mixer bowl beat butter, sugar and salt together. Add eggs and vanilla and beat to combine. Add cocoa powder and baking soda and mix. Add flour a cup at a time just until incorporated. On low speed mix in candy bar pieces and peanut butter chips.
3. Scoop with a standard (size 50) cookie scoop onto parchment 2 inches apart. Push back in any candy bar pieces sticking out of the sides.
4. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then move cookies to a cooling rack.
