Butterfinger Brownie Bars (Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bar)

Pin It Now!

One of my very favorite candy bars in the whole world (after Reese's Cups) are Butterfinger!

Chocolate with crispy crunchy peanut butter... Oh BOY!

These brownies (they are actually low on flour, so they are simply cookies, but spread out on a small jelly roll pan so they can be cut into squares or bars.

I like to under bake mine so that they come out soft and chewy and gooey inside.

The recipe calls for bittersweet chocolate which combines well with the sweetened chocolate in the candy bar.

One note, the "brownies" will look puffed when you pull them out of the oven.  But know that the brownies will sink and flatten as they cool.

Oh, and the white bits are simply some melted chocolate chips that i Flicked across the bars once they came out of the oven.  No real need except they look better in the photos with the contrasting color.

OK, Here's what I did...

Butterfinger Brownie Bars 
(Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bar)

  • 4 TBS (1/2 Stick) Butter
  • 1 (10 Ounce) Package Bittersweet Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Large Eggs, Whipped
  • 1/3rd Cup Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Cups Chopped Butterfinger Candy Bars
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line bottom of lipped cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Put butter and chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, then microwave an additional 15 to 20 seconds if needed until the mixture is melted and smooth.
  4. Stir sugar, salt and vanilla into the chocolate .
  5. Add the eggs slowly, stirring until they are completely incorporated.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda, then add the flour mixture to the chocolate batter.
  7. Mix well for 3-4 minutes. The batter should be smooth and glossy and thick., stir in the butterfingers.
  8. Spread the batter onto your prepared cookie sheet
  9. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. puff up,but as they cool, they'll sink and become more firm as they cool.
  10. Let them cool completely before cutting. These come out gooey and soft. If you want a firmer less gooey brownie bite, bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  11. Serve with an ice cold glass of milk and ENJOY!!!
