Since I made Ginger Cookies the other day and Jon really doesn't like spice cookies, I decided to make something he'd really like.
I was thinking peanut butter cookies, maybe with some mini chocolate chips. Then one of my co-workers brought in some leftover Halloween candy and there were a couple of Butterfingers in the mix. I thought they might be good chopped up in the cookies. They'd be a little less chocolatey than mini chocolate chips and of course add some more crispity crunchity peanut butter flavor. So I stopped to pick up a bag of fun-sized Butterfingers on my way home.
