I recently bought a cobalt blue KitchenAid mixer and I have to say, I don’t know what took me so long. Making baked goods is so much easier and quicker now. I’m in love.
I’ve been having fun making cookies, bars, breads, and muffins. One of the best things I’ve made is M&M Butterfinger cookies. Not only are these cookies delicious but they’re also easy to make, and you probably have most of the ingredients in the kitchen already.
With the winter being so cold (and even colder since I moved to Minneapolis), these cookies are a great thing to have on hand when you’re stuck inside when it’s snowing (like today). They’re the perfect snack, and with the peanut butter and oats added, they’re also filling until dinner time.
What really makes these cookies is the Butterfingers. They add a nice extra punch of flavor, and the inside of the Butterfinger has a fun texture once it’s been baked.
M&M Butterfinger Cookies
M&M candies, chunks of Butterfinger, chocolate chips, and more come together to create these delicious cookies! Bet you can't eat just one!
- 1 stick of butter, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2/3 cup unpacked brown sugar
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 heaping cup of rolled oats
- 1 heaping cup each chocolate chips, Butterfinger chunks, and M&M candies (I used the plain kind)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.
- Beat in the peanut butter, vanilla and eggs until very well blended.
- Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix into the wet ingredients until just combined.
- Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, Butterfinger chunks, and M&M candies until thoroughly combined.
- Make balls of heaping tablespoons of dough and place on a greased baking sheet.
- Bake for 10–12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges start to brown.
- Note: Let cookies cool on baking sheets for about 7 minutes until firm, then transfer to cooling racks.
