Butterfinger Cookie Bars

My overwhelmed meter is in the red zone. I will literally be thinking ahead only one hour at a time until next Tuesday morning when my little boys and I take off on our 3,000+ mile road trip. I cannot wait until all of my tasks are accomplished and we are on the open road! I will share details of the trip later, but for now? Details of a very sinful treat! I am a HUGE Butterfinger lover, so this is a little slice of heaven for me.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8x8-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Let a 16.5-oz. package of refrigerated cookie dough sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Coarsely chop 3 Hershey's bars.

In a medium bowl, combine the cookie dough and chocolate pieces. 

Mix together using your hands.

As if this glob of calories weren't enough!

Press half of it into the bottom of the prepared pan and top it with 5 Butterfinger candy bars. Mmmm.

Top with the remaining cookie dough and pop it in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until the dough is cooked through.

Meanwhile, coarsely chop 2 Butterfinger candy bars (yes, that is 7 total Butterfingers). When the bars come out of the oven, crumble the Butterfinger pieces over the top and press down gently.

Let the bars cool completely and cut into small squares. 

Thanks for reading! Onto my next task!
