Who can resist that unique, crispety, crunchety, peanut-buttery texture of a Butterfinger?! Butterfinger were one of my favorites growing up! Combing through Halloween candy I always coveted Butterfinger!

My local Safeway has an impressive candy aisle right smack-dab in the middle of the store. It’s hard not to take a stroll down that aisle and pick up a treat or two when you are grocery shopping! I scroll through my Safeway mobile app as I’m shopping to see what I can get a quick deal on. I’m always extra excited when I spot Butterfinger on sale!

One of the things I’ve been missing during this pregnancy is eating cookie dough batter when I’m baking. I didn’t really think about it before pregnancy, but it’s one of my favorite parts about making cookies. I know, I know, you should NEVER eat raw dough no matter if you are pregnant or not. I am aware of all the reasons why you shouldn’t, but I am majorly guilty of snacking on raw dough during my non-pregnant life!

That’s where these Butterfinger Cookie Dough Bars come in! They are made with eggless batter and heat treated flour, making them a completely safe way to consume mass amounts of cookie dough 🙂 

I just love the little bit of crunch and deliciousness the crushed up Butterfinger adds to the creamy peanut buttery cookie dough!

How to Make Butterfinger Cookie Dough Bars

 

They are so easy to make! Start by combining butter, brown sugar and creamy peanut butter (you know the good stuff 😉 ) until smooth, then add in the vanilla extract. Whisk together the dry ingredients – the heat treated flour, powdered sugar and salt. Add that mixture to the mixer and beat until fully combined. The dough will be firm and a little flakey. 

Remove the bowl from the mixer and add in the chopped Butterfinger pieces. It’s easiest to incorporate the Butterfinger using clean hands, work them in to the dough until evenly distributed. 

Press the cookie dough into a baking pan and then transfer it to the freezer to set. Once the dough is set, melt together dark chocolate and peanut butter. Pour it over the bars and spread evenly. Sprinkle the top with more crushed Butterfinger! 

Put the bars back in the freezer for about 20 more minutes to set the topping. Once set, slice the bars and enjoy! 

The bars keep best when kept in the refrigerator or freezer!
