Butterfinger Cookie Sandwiches are heaven for the Butterfinger lover. Two chewy cookies loaded with Butterfinger and a creamy peanut...
I’ve never been much of a candy bar-lover. As a kid, I usually opted for something chewy or gummy, like Skittles or Sour Patch Kids---but I’ve always totally loved Butterfingers. I mean, how can you not? No other bar can match the flakey, crispy peanut butter-y inside!
Okay, but wait, you guys, I think I found a way to make them better. We’re putting them in cookies, we’re putting them in frosting, and then were smashing it all together! It’s salty-sweet, texture heaven.
If you didn’t already know, cookie sandwiches are totally where it’s at (like these pumpkin toffee cookies with salted caramel cream cheese frosting, or these strawberries & cream cookie sandwiches). They’re like whoopie pies, but better. You get all the texture from a cookie (err, um well TWO cookies in this case…), but you also get the creamy filling.
For these particular little numbers, the frosting filling is an ultra creamy peanut butter buttercream, with Butterfinger crumbles stirred throughout. I’m warning you, it’s really hard not to just gobble this up by the spoonful.
The cookies are chewy, thanks to my secret ingredient cookie weapon---cornstarch, and have tons and tons of Butterfinger chunks inside, that melt all around and make everything 800x more amazing.
These Butterfinger cookie sandwiches are super simple to make, but I do recommend making them a day or two ahead of time. As weird as it sounds, they get better as they age. They’re still crazy tasty on the first day, but I happened to find them at peak deliciousness on the third day. The flavors have a chance to mellow together, the cookie texture is at its most delicious, and the frosting sets up.
