WARNING: if you have toddlers, be careful to break these into small pieces and watch them eat the cookies because they're sticky/tacky in your mouth (as butterfingers are) and could be a choking issue for little ones. These were really great cookies overall. We bought full-size butterfinger candy bars for Halloween and had several leftover, laying around the house. So I went in search of a recipe for them. I followed the recipe exactly and then added about 3/4 cup of milk chocolate chips. These turned out nicely. I used a silicone baking sheet on my cookie sheet and I would never attempt these without one. The candy makes the cookies sticky and prone to burning. The silicone mat prevents this. The candy bar adds a deep buttery flavor to the cookie and the additional chocolate chips really made a difference -- I don't think I would have liked them as much without. I removed them from the oven when the cookies were not yet fully set. It's crucial that you leave them on the cookie sheet or they'll fall apart. This also allows them to continue cooking. Great recipe -- a real keeper.
