Ingredients

YIELD: 4-5 DOZEN
For the Cookie Bar:
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
For the Topping:
  • 12oz milk chocolate morsels
  • 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 bags (8oz each) Butterfinger Bites, crushed

Instructions

  1. For the cookie bars, beat butter and brown sugar in mixing bowl until combined. Add peanut butter. Beat in egg and milk. Beat in the flour, salt and baking soda. Press dough into a 15x10x1 baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Dough will be sticky, I dipped my fingers in flour before pressing. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Remove from oven.
  2. On stovetop in small saucepan, heat sweetened condensed milk until warm. Whisk in the milk chocolate and continue stirring until smooth.
  3. Pour fudge over cookie bars. Top with crushed Butterfingers, pressing them into the fudge lightly. Allow to cool completely and cut into small bars.

Notes

**If desired, substitute refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough for the homemade version.
