These Butterfinger Monster Cookies are ridiculously delicious! Made with peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips, chopped Butterfinger and M&M’s. . . . What’s not to love? These are going to be an instant favorite!
It really doesn’t even have to be strictly chocolate chip cookies either. Any cookie with chocolate chips, peanut butter, M&M’s, chopped candy bar, Oreos, toffee bits, etc. completely wins me over.
I make cookies at least four times a week and I’m not ashamed to admit that sometimes I don’t even bake any of the dough, I just eat it and then make dough balls and put them in my freezer (no judging please).
Just look at them, they pretty much speak for themselves.
As if monster cookies aren’t all ready delicious enough on their own, but then I had to go and throw some chopped Butterfinger in, making them even more amazing.
I’m not going to lie, it was one of the greatest decisions ever!
I decided to put some of those Butterfingers to good use and took one my favorite cookie recipes and tossed in lots of chopped Butterfinger. . . Ummm, hello crazy, delicious cookies!
These might be one of my newest favorite cookies.
Now I know I declare a lot of cookies to be my favorite, but being the cookie addict that I am, there is always room in my heart for more than one favorite.
If you don’t have any Butterfingers or M&M’s, I highly recommend you run to the store and buy some ASAP because these cookies need to be in your kitchen.
A FEW TIPS FOR MAKING THESE COOKIES:
- These cookies do not flatten out a ton, so if you want a flatter cookie, you can gently press down the dough balls with the palm of your hand before you bake them. You can also tap the cookie sheet a couple times on the counter after they come out of the oven, this will make them fall slightly.
- Make sure you stir the M&M’s in by hand so they don’t break into pieces. If you’re feeling lazy and don’t want to do that, just keep your mixer on low and turn it on for just a few seconds to stir them in.
- I like to add a few more M&M’s on top of each cookie before I put them in the oven to bake.
- ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- ½ cup (heaping) creamy peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup coarsely chopped Butterfinger
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup M&M candies
Preheat oven to 350ºF and line baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat liner.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Add peanut butter, vanilla and egg, and mix until well blended.
Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix until just combined. Add oats and mix until just combined. Add chopped Butterfinger and chocolate chips and mix on low until just combined. Add M&M's and gently stir in by hand.
Using a cookie, scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 11 minutes. (Cookies will may still look underbaked, don't over bake them.)
Remove from the oven and cool for 3 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack.
