  1. Yum! I’ve made ‘cake mix’ cookies before but never with the addition of a Butterfinger! I know someone at my house who would LOVE these 🙂

  2. Great Idea! I just scored 200+ butterfingers for free, and we’ve been trying to figure out what to do with them all. I’ll definitely put this to good use.

  3. @Kim. How did you score the butterfingers?

    I love making cookies with the funfettie cake mix. I’ll have to try this one.

  4. Husband found some great tearpads! He found $1/2 Butterfingers, and a free mid-continent soda (7-up, A&W, Sunkist) 20 oz bottle. We stacked them together for a recent sale. Scored over 200 free candy bars and over a 100 free soda’s for only bottle deposit and sales tax. Whoo hoo!!

  5. these look so easy and yummy–would love to make them with our 4 and 6 year old great nieces….what is an alternate candy bar that we could use as the little ones have tree nut allergies ???? thanks so much !!!
