I really need to come up with a better name for these amazing cookies! I found them at Picky Palate . The cookie base is incredibly tender, the Butterfinger melts leaving chunks of peanut butter goodness, and the milky way adds gooey chocolate spots that are out of this world. Seriously they are AMAZING!
Butterfinger, Milky Way Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 mini Butterfinger (fun size) or 1 1/2 full size candy bars
6 mini milky ways quartered or 1 full size candy bar
1/2 Cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until well combined. Slowly add in eggs and vanilla until well mixed.
2. Place flour, baking soda and salt into a large bowl; mix to combine. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the candy bars and chocolate chips until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until done to your liking. I take them out right at 9 minutes for a softer cookie. Let cool for 5-7 minutes on baking sheet to set up. Transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

A friend of mine brought this to a ladies game night and it was delicious! I am a huge fan of sweet chex mix. This recipe is combines sweet chex mix with the saltiness of buttered popcorn. My kids and I are addicts!
2 bags popped popcorn (use butter lovers if you dare!)
4 cups corn Chex
5 c. Golden Grahams (I left these out and added more chex)
1/2 c. slivered almonds
1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. Karo Syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix popcorn, cereal and almonds; set aside. In a medium saucepan combine butter, sugar and syrup. Boil for 3 minutes, remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour over cereal mixture and stir to combine.
