No-Bake Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies

No-Bake Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies are so simple to make with lots of chocolate, peanut butter, and butterfinger flavor. These cookies are similar to No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, but the flavor is kicked up a notch with crushed candy.

No-Bake Buttefinger Oatmeal Cookies


Butterfingers are my absolute favorite candy to use in the kitchen. The chocolate coated crispy peanut butter candy lends so much awesome flavor to desserts.


No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are such a classic cookie and one of the most popular recipes on Spicy Southern Kitchen. Since I love adding Butterfingers to things, I decided to try a Butterfinger version. They turned out awesome. I mixed crushed butterfingers into the batter and sprinkled more on top. They’re wonderfully sweet, dense, and a little chewy.

No-Bake Butterfinger Oatmeal Cookies



  • Place cut up butter, cocoa powder, sugar and milk in a large saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil and stir for 9o seconds. Set a timer to make sure you get the time right.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter, oats, and vanilla.
  • Lastly, stir in the crushed butterfingers and drop the mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.
  • The cookies will take 30 to 60 minutes to fully set.


  • When forming the cookies, spray the measuring cup with cooking spray and the batter will easily release from the cup.
  • If the mixture is still really soupy after 90 seconds of boiling, let it cool slightly before forming the cookies. Careful not to let it cool too much or it will be difficult to shape them.
  • You can use either quick-cooking oats or old-fashioned oats. The quick-ccoking oats will blend into the batter in smaller pieces while the old-fashioned oats will give the cookies slightly more oatmeal flavor and a chewier texture. It is personal preference which one you prefer.
  • Store at room temperature in an airtight container so they do not dry out. They will stay fresh for a good 5 days.

  1. Butterfinger is one of my favorite candy bars (Payday, Heath bar, Baby Ruth “rounding out” the list of favorites!) BUT it is owned by Nestle, as are so many things in any grocery store. Nestle is boycotted by millions of people around the world for their truly horrific international corporate practices including: privatizing water in the most precious places on the planet when clean, fresh drinking water is increasingly scarce; they put it into plastic bottles (a global/oceanic horror) and sell it at high prices. Often they pay little to nothing to “mine” HUGE quantities of water, exhausting aquifers and irreplaceable water sources. Their privatizing of waters is their most vile activity but hardly their only one. They also have a monstrous history of discouraging and obstructing women around the world from breastfeeding their babies, and “helping” them to use Nestle inferior infant formula – which has harmed mother/infant health AND furthermore, their formulas require the use of safe, fresh water in areas where (guess what?!) it is scarce, not safe or very hard to access.
    So, like millions of other conscientious people around the world, we pay attention to what our money supports and that means: Boycott Nestle – and that means giving up Butterfinger candy for those who absolutely love it a lot. I long for the day when Butterfinger is no longer owned by Nestle and I can again have my favorite candy bar which I used to buy regularly – BEFORE Nestle bought up the candy bars and so much else in all of our food markets. Boycott Nestle (and carefully read all labels because they own a LOT of surprising products – e.g. Stouffers, another favorite…. Sigh. It’s not always easy to do the right thing.)

  2. OMG this looks yummy! Chocolate & Butter Finger has to be tasty!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing the recipe. Will be trying it soon.
