In the Mood to Bake

Do you ever just get in the mood to bake? It usually happens to me every Sunday. I get into the mood to do some baking but with my diet I never want to eat it. The hubby gets to benefit. He has to work every Sunday so I spend the day doing laundry and baking some goodies for him to have after Sunday dinner and then he can take the leftovers to work the next day. This way I get to bake and not be tempted. So I went searching today to see what kind of baked good I could make. I found a cookie recipe over at Picky Palate that I knew my husband would love. It is a Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger cookie. He loves Butterfinger candy bars so this was perfect. Brian really loved these cookies. He says they are a cookie you have to have with milk. Enjoy and thanks to Picky Palate for providing me with a recipe for my baking urge.

Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger Cookie

1 cup butter

1 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 3/4 cups flour

1 1/4 cups cocoa powder ( Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder)

2 tsps. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

2 Full size Butterfinger Bars, crushed

1 1/2 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and use a cookie sheet with a silpat liner.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until well combined.

3. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients then stir in crushed butterfinger and chocolate chips. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

4. Bake for 9-11 minutes, should still be soft in center. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. I get in the mood to bake whenever I am supposed to be studying. It is just so much more rewarding! These cookies look fantastic. I would so not send them to work with my hypothetical husband. You are a way stronger person than I am!

  2. I am always in the mood to bake. It is just much fun! :)

    Great cookies by the way.
