Butterfinger Potato Chip Cookies are my recipe of the day with the blogging group Sunday Funday. We get together on  Sundays to  post our favorite recipes for the chosen topic.

Today we are sharing  our best potato  chip recipes.

I decided to  share my recipe for Butterfinger potato chip cookies which  put the fun of chips and crushed candy bars into a bite-sized dessert. You can use thick ripple chips or kettle chips in this, but you  can also use potato sticks in this (which I have  done).

The Butterfingers are from  leftover candy bars. I have listed those out as how many fun  size bars as well as the weight. They keep changing the weights on the bars ever smaller, so it is probably best to weigh it out. Baking recipes can be touchy if the ingredients are off by too much.

  1. Leftover butterfingers? How does that happen LOL….I would have to buy them and bake this immediately or there would be none left for the recipe.

    • Pro Tip: Unwrap them and crush them up right away and put in a zippy bag. Nobody seems to take off with the crumbs. LOL

  2. Potato chips in cookies are so good. That salty sweet combination is out of this world. My only problem is I never seem to have leftover candy bars, lol.

  3. Butterfingers are my favorite candy bar because of the sweet and salty mixture so I know I would love your cookies with the addition of the chips, Sue!

  4. Sue wow, I’ve not tasted cookies with potato chips in them. I don’t get butterfinger candy here so what can I replace it with? Can just imagine the crunch from the potato chips and the sweetness of the candies.
