makes about 2 1/2 dozen

Run The Option

Substitute milk, semi-sweet or white chocolate morsels for the bittersweet for equally tasty results.

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 all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
10-oz Butterfinger candy bars, chopped
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 until well blended, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the egg & blend on Low speed until incorporated. Stir in the peanut butter & the vanilla. Combine the flour, the baking soda & the salt; fold into the butter mixture just until the flour is incorporated. Stir in the candy pieces & the chopped chocolate, if desired. 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 10 to 13 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.

The Extra Point

Package the treats in festive sacks to serve when tailgating. Use your team colors for a more custom creation.

How To Measure Brown Sugar 

Sugar is a spreading agent in baked goods. It’s important to know how to measure it properly to have success. Follow my tips for this simple task.

When preparing baking recipes that call for brown sugar, it’s important to get an accurate measurement. Be certain to pack it tightly in the measuring cup & level with a knife, if necessary. Once you have the proper amount, add it as is to the recipes or crumble through your fingers to break it up to ensure the proper blending takes place.
