makes about 2 1/2 dozen

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup ap flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 {10-oz} package Butterfinger Bites candy bars, chopped
Optional: 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate morsels, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter & the sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer on medium speed for about 4 minutes. Add the egg & beat until blended. Blend in peanut butter & the vanilla. Combine the flour, the baking soda & the salt. Add to the butter mixture & blend just until the flour is incorporated. Add the candy pieces & the chopped chocolate, if desired. Give a few spins to the mixer. Place heaping tablespoons of dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets about 1-inch apart. Flatten the dough slightly before depositing in the oven. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies just begin to turn brown on the edges. Do not over bake. Cool completely so that the candy has a chance to become firm again.

How To Score A Touchdown Presentation

Go ahead & choreograph your end zone moves…
Showboat game day styling skills with a few effortless tid-bits.

rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickThe Technique

The Casserole Dish

Look for team colors & shapes when you’re out & about.
The chocolate brown baker & field green linen came from a discount pottery warehouse.

Take a little time to peruse the aisles.
I walked away with quite the game day bounty for pennies.

The Pepperoni

Reduced-fat pepperoni slices release less grease while baking.
You can use regular pepperoni if you’d like to.
Gently dab any excess grease with the corner of a paper towel before serving.

The Baking

Do not over bake the dip or be tempted to crank up the oven temperature
to ensure a creamier texture.

The Magazine Finish

For a golden, bubbly photo-looking finish,
gently run a brûlée torch over the surface in a back & forth motion.

The Caution

Before running any dish under the broil element in your oven,
always check the bottom of the casserole to see if it is marked as broiler-safe.
This is serious & directions should be followed.
