Reese's + Butterfinger Cookies

Soft-Baked Butterfinger Cookies | Sprinkles for Breakfast

I am a huge Dairy Queen fan. Whenever we had a short day at school, my friends and I used to walk down the street to the Dairy Queen and hang out there (we were super cool - I know). And every single time, I got the same thing  - a blizzard with Butterfinger and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

I'm not sure where I came up with this combo, but I'm glad I did because it's absolutely delicious. Sadly, I no longer live near a Dairy Queen, so when I am feeling down (, I have to make my own homemade version. But it's never as good.

So this week I tried something new. Instead of making a homemade blizzard, I made cookies instead. I am happy to report that the Butterfinger/Reese's Peanut Butter Cup combination is EXCELLENT in cookie form.

For the base, I used Soft-Baked Sugar Cookies from Sally's Baking Addiction. So the cookie itself is super soft (which is the best) with the added goodness of the Butterfinger Baking Bits
