Apparently Butterfingers are an embarrassing habit. I am not talking about being caught with your hands in butter, because that would be kind of embarrassing. I’m talking about the delicious peanut buttery chocolately goodness that is formed into a candy bar and used to be hocked by Bart Simpson.
I wasn’t aware of it, but apparently Butterfingers aren’t “cool.” Hence Whitney not telling me until we’d known each other for some twenty odd years that BUTTERFINGERS were her favorite candy bar. That girl. Love her. Anyway, after we got that “getting to know your candy tastes” talk out of the way, I introduced her to these, Butterfinger cookies.
This recipe is a funny thing, because I have no idea where it came from. I know my mom found it somewhere, sometime between the day I was born and today. I do have an idea of how delicious it is. And how it could probably bring about world peace. I’m not even exaggerating.
