Butterfinger Cookie Bars

Soft and chewy Butterfinger Cookie Bars with a light, creamy Butterfinger frosting.

Butterfinger Cookie Bars

It’s no secret that I totally have a thing for cookie bars. You skip all the scooping, rolling, and chilling, that often comes with making a batch of cookies, and instead, you press all of the dough into one pan, to make “bars” instead.  The possibilities for cookie bars are endless. These are some of my favorites.

These butterfinger cookie bars are HEAVENLY. The dough is kind of like a blondie. (Have you had blondies before? They are a non-chocolate version of a brownie). Thick, soft and chewy. Plus, you add 2 cups of chopped butterfinger bits into the batter, too.

And if the cookie bars were not delicious enough plain, you top them with a light, fluffy buttercream frosting that also has chopped butterfinger bits in it. WOW. WOOOOOWWW. These were SO GOOD.
