Seeing this recipe I had to make these cookies. Being a lover of peanut butter and Butterfingers, It had to happen. I couldn't wait to go to the market and get the chuky peanut butter so I used regular. The directions ask to cut the Butterfingers in 1/2 inch slices but they were breaking in all directions so I just sliced them and put in the batter. The cookies are a bite into a Butterfinger. Crispy on the edges and chewy and soft in the middle.
