Peanut Butterfinger Blossoms
My daughter has been hilarious today.
She’s been teetering on the edge of sleep deprivation lately (waking in the middle of every night for about a week), and it’s made her just a tad delirious.
Fortunately, it’s been in a good, funny kind of way (not in the inconsolable tantrums kind of way, thank our lucky stars). She’s been doing funny dances and saying silly things (“Oh Dad! Your muscles are SO big! They’re gigantic!! Oh wow.”). And, frankly, she’s been a real treat to be around!
We’re considering long term sleep deprivation for her… but I sense an imminent backfire in that plan, so maybe we’ll just let it run its course ;)
Regardless, we’re enjoying her metal state immensely (possibly because we’re bordering on sleep deprivation-induced delirium ourselves), and I just had to pull out the camera today and capture some of her finer moments.
While I was shooting these cookies, she ran to her room and grabbed her own camera. And although I didn’t catch all of the funny things she said while doing her own photo shoot (“Mom. My muscles need these chocolate heart cookies!”), I did capture a few sweet moments that I just have to share:
So cute, right? Gotta love this age…
Alright. These cookies. They’re your standard variety Peanut Butter blossoms, with Butterfinger hearts replacing the Hershey’s Kiss. So what makes them so special? Well, for me, it’s that…
I. love. Butterfinger. hearts.
I mean… LOVE THEM. And the Jingle Bells. And the Easter Eggs. Basically, I love the fact that there is no traditional Butterfinger center. The crispy peanut butter insides have been pulverated into crispy bits and mixed into the chocolate. And I simply can’t get enough of it.
Which is why I felt compelled to stick them on top of a peanut butter cookie and share this crispy peanut buttery goodness with all of my little online world! Be sure to make a batch before all the seasonal Butterfingers have left the stores!
