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-

  • 4
    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.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
