  1. Yum! I’ve made ‘cake mix’ cookies before but never with the addition of a Butterfinger! I know someone at my house who would LOVE these :)

  2. Frugal Mom Rocks says:

    Thank you! Great frugal recipe.

  3. Great Idea! I just scored 200+ butterfingers for free, and we’ve been trying to figure out what to do with them all. I’ll definitely put this to good use.

  4. @Kim. How did you score the butterfingers?

    I love making cookies with the funfettie cake mix. I’ll have to try this one.

  5. Husband found some great tearpads! He found $1/2 Butterfingers, and a free mid-continent soda (7-up, A&W, Sunkist) 20 oz bottle. We stacked them together for a recent sale. Scored over 200 free candy bars and over a 100 free soda’s for only bottle deposit and sales tax. Whoo hoo!!
