Butterfinger Cookie Cups

Butterfinger Cookie Cups


We had yet another flag football game last night.  I am so torn about the football schedule.  It is about 6 weeks long, but they have 2 practices a week, and then usually 2 games.  Part of me wishes they could space out the games, so it wasn’t so busy.  But on the other hand I am not sure I could do this for 10 weeks!

Yesterday also marked another highlight for me.  My running is back!  Moving to Colorado really hurt my time.  I was 40 seconds per mile slower for the last 4 months.  It has not been fun.  But I am finally back.  My last 2 runs have been back to my pre-move time!  Now I am excited to start adding distance.  I can’t wait to run this summer while visiting my parents in Wisconsin to see what my time will be 🙂

Ok, so onto the food.  I used Butterfinger mini’s for these, but you could use any mini candy bars.  I don’t know about you, but I still have lots of Easter candy that would be great for these.  Snickers, Twix, Peanut Butter Cups, heck even M&M’s would work.  Want to make it even easier? Use store bought chocolate chip cookie dough.
