5-Ingredient Butterfinger™ Cookie Bars
Better with Butterfinger™—that was our motto for this cookie bar. We started by crushing the peanut butter candy bars and mixing them in with chocolate chip cookie mix, then decided to go all in by sprinkling more crushed Butterfinger bars on top—you know, for good measure.MORE+LESS-
Betty Crocker Cookies
pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ chocolate chip cookie mix
Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch
bars (1.9 oz each) Butterfinger™ candy, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
cup semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch square pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix cookie mix, butter, egg and 3/4 cup of the chopped candy with spoon until soft dough forms. Press evenly in pan.
Bake 24 to 27 minutes or until top is golden brown. Sprinkle remaining chopped candy on top. Bake 2 minutes. Cool 15 minutes.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds or until chips can be stirred smooth. Transfer to small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut small hole in 1 corner of bag. Drizzle melted chips on top of bars.
Cool completely, about 2 hours 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Cut into 4 rows by 4 rows. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
- Placing the bars back in the oven after they’re topped with chopped Butterfinger™ bars allows the candy to melt slightly on top, which helps it adhere better when the bars are cooled.
- The secret for cutting bars easily is to line pan with heavy-duty or nonstick foil. When it is time to cut bars, just lift baked bar with foil out of pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
