Chewy Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies #thebookclubcookbookCC

One of the things I miss the most since Miss O was born is my ability to put my feet up and read.  When I was traveling a lot with work I had a lot of time to read on my flights and layovers. I also would take time on the weekends and snuggle up on the couch to engage myself in a new world through a wide variety of genres. Having a baby means almost no free time. Or at least my priorities have changed a bit. My free time is now spent playing and snuggling a baby. I miss reading but for the time being I am OK with my limited book time. 

That doesn't mean however that I cannot enjoy a good book. As part of my monthly Book Club Cook Book contribution this month I dove into Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Erin of The Spiffy Cookie, hosted this month and I could not have been more pleased with her pick. If you are interested in joining see this post from Camilla, our leader.  There is a giveaway at the bottom of this post for The Book Club Cook Book so keep reading. 

This is my second time reading this book but the first time was way long ago, dare I even say when I was in high school. Before I even opened the pages I was pretty sure I wanted to make ButterBeer. Turns out though that this doesn't come up in the series till much later. The other thing I kept turning to was the scene in the movie right before the troll storms the castle. The characters are feasting in this marvelous hall with all sorts of goodies floating around. As I was reading the book and thinking of a potential recipe, this imagine was stuck in my mind. I think of it as the most massive and decadent Thanksgiving feast. It may have been because we had just celebrated Halloween but my massive and decadent feast turned into very indulgent cookies. Cookies which included rice crispy cereal, Butterfinger candy and chocolate chips. Did I mention these cookies were gigantic? 

I believe my Chewy Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies would fit right in with the desserts offered at Hogwarts.

Chewy Butterfinger Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Emily Morris
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Ingredients (makes large 15 cookies)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 ¼ cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped Butterfinger candy bars
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Combine butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until smooth and creamy, about two minutes. On low, add in egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.

Slowly add in the dry ingredients until mixed together.

Fold in the oats, cereal, chocolate chips, and Butterfinger pieces by hand. Don’t over mix.

Scoop dough into balls, about a tablespoon each, and place on prepared baking sheet. 

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are slightly brown, the centers should still be soft.

Allow cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet. Move cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
