Butterfinger Whoopie Pies – soft Butterfinger cookies with a peanut butter cream cheese filling! 

Butterfinger Whoopie Pies - soft Butterfinger cookies with a peanut butter cream cheese filling!

Hiiiii guys!

Surviving the week so far? Got stuck in a rainstorm last night. In the Jeep. Without the top on. And if that’s the worst thing that happens to me this week, I’m okay with it.

(I secretly love when that happens.)

Anyway, today I’ve got a fabulous semi-homemade recipe today because that’s what I’m all about right now.

Butterfinger Whoopie Pies - soft Butterfinger cookies with a peanut butter cream cheese filling!

I picked up all the new Nestle Toll House Baking Mixes at my HEB the other day.

Wait, Amanda, you picked up all of them?

Yep.

I like brownies.

And cookies.

What can I say?

So there are 4 varieities: Brownies & More with Butterfingers, Brownies & More with chocolate morsels, Cookies & More with Butterfingers, and Cookies & More with chocolate morsels.

The great thing about these mixes is you can make them as cookies or brownies OR you can use that are your jumping off point and go crazy. Like, the box of Cookies & More with Butterfingers that I used has the recipe for the cookies but it also has a recipe for Cookie Brittle (!) and Banana Snack Cake. Using the mix!

You can turn these mixes into whatever you want!

Another great thing about this line of baking mixes is that they have no artificial flavors or colors. And since it’s from Nestle Toll House, you know you can trust them to put out a premium product.

Butterfinger Whoopie Pies!

For these Butterfinger Whoopie Pies, I used the Cookies & More with Butterfingers and instead of baking them as regular cookies, I added an extra egg and some sour cream to make them super soft whoopie pies. And then I made one of my favorite frostings to put in the middle: peanut butter cream cheese frosting!

Seriously good. It took me forever to truly embrace the whoopie pie but I’m all about them now. They’re, like, a cupcake with better frosting distribution.

Can we agree that Easter is the best holiday for candy?

I can’t get enough of the egg-shaped, pastel colored candy right now! I’m especially in love with the Easter makeover​ Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Minis got – cute blue and gold foil packaging. And individually wrapped so they’re perfect for your candy jar or for filling plastic eggs!

There are also new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Smooth & Crunchy Eggs which are the perfect combo of milk chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and crunchy Butterfinger bits.

And you can feel good about enjoying these two new treats because they are both made with no artificial colors or flavors!

I love them.

My level of Halloween excitement is so high that I cannot even tell you where it is. My best estimate is that it’s somewhere near “OMGGGG I MAY DIE OF ANTICIPATION BEFORE IT ACTUALLY GETS HERE” on the scale.

We’ve had costumes for at least a month now. Even the dogs. My house has been decorated since September 1. I’m even stocking up on candy – but only the kind I don’t like so that I’m not tempted.

Today we’re talking about a candy that I do like, though. I really, really, really like this one. Which means that bag that I just bought from Walmart the other day won’t last long enough to see Halloween. (Let’s be real, it’s already gone. Oops.)

Have you tried the Butterfinger Cups? This was my first time trying them and I don’t want to be dramatic but… life changing. I had seen them around and assumed that they were just regular Butterfingers in a different shape. But totally not. They taste like the regular ones but have a completely different texture. I’m obsessed and will be buying more for trick-or-treaters and then accidentally putting them on the bottom of our candy bowl in hopes that there will be lots left for me.

I used those Butterfinger Cups to make Butterfinger Brownie Pizza! You guys know I’m absolutely crazy about sweet pizzas and typically I use cookie dough as the crust. But for this one, I used a brownie mix (from a box – super simple!) and I think I like it more than the cookie crusts. I mean, what’s better than a brownie? And then for the sauce, I made a peanut butter whipped cream that takes just minutes to whip up. I chopped up a few of the Butterfinger Cups and sprinkled those around and then topped it all off with fun Halloween sprinkles.

And speaking of pizza, we all need good fuel before heading out the door for trick-or-treating and Tombstone pizza is perfect for that! And I just love their spooky Halloween packaging!

Let me know in the comments which #Treats4All you’ll be handing out on Halloween. Or what you’ll be eating fuel up for the big night!
