    These are great

    Carol Bevel from AMARILLO, TX

    I love this recipe!! It is easy to adapt for other holidays too, just use the mini versions of the butterfingers that are around that holiday. Everyone who has eaten any has wanted the recipe!!!

    Yum!

    Cary Schwartz from

    This was so delicious! If you like peanut butter you have to try this recipe. The only problem was that I had to remove the cookies from the muffin pan before the chocolate had rehardened, and the chocolate got a little bit squished.

    So good....

    JUDY DELPERDANG from CLEAR LAKE, IA

    Very tasty and very easy. The tough part was keeping family and friends away from the candies before I made the cookies! I used both Butterfinger hearts and some dark chocolate hearts, and they worked equally well. Definitely a keeper.

    Easy to make and fun to eat!

    Gail Shanika from SUFFOLK, VA

    I made these for my daughter's middleschool dance. The PTA had asked parents to make finger foods. I could not find the Butterfinger Hearts anywhere so I substituted with another pnut chocolate heart candy. They ended up being taller and wouldn't lay flat in the mini muffin cups so I put them smack in the center with the point down in the middle of the cookie. They still looked great and the kids loved them! I would definately make these again...maybe next time I'll be able to find the Butterfinger hearts!

    It's a hit!

    Kathleen Ellis from MOLINO, FL

    Demonstrated this for my 7th grade class and they were a hit and all 12 batches turned out great! The kids were thrilled with a special treat they could prepare for Valentine's Day. The recipe was prepared by the "head cooks" and divided into thirds then each cooking group could bake a dozen.

    Making Variations

    Deb Speer from SOLSBERRY, IN

    I did these with Butterfinger hearts, Crunch hearts and other heart shaped candies. To keep track of the different candies, I colored the dough before baking. Butterfinger -- red, Crunch -- yellow, peanut butter -- blue, etc. This took the guessing out of the candies

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy and Cute!

    charmaine clark from chicago, IL

    I made these cookies for my daughters Valentines Day party at school. It was a winner with all the kids! The heart shaped candies made it fun to eat too!

    Birthday Success

    Linda Pfenning from Bayonne, NJ

    I made these for my friend's birthday at work and what a hit they were. I doubled the batch and made the six dozen and they were gone within an hour. A must make. (I substituted the butterfinger chocolates for dove chocolates...much better)

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious

    BETTY GALLAGHER from BAKERSFIELD, CA

    My family loved these cookies. What made them even more delicious were, that they called for Butterfinger candy pieces. We all love Butterfinger candy bars. They look good and taste good.

    Peanutty Valentine Cookies

    Ruth Caswell from WATSONTOWN, PA

    So very good that even though I put most of them in the freezer, I don't think they will last untill Valentine's Day! Since I didn't have the mini muffin pan, I rolled them into a ball, then rolled them in sugar, and placed the candy hearts into each cookie for the last minute of baking.

  •  Star(s)

    PRETTY GOOD!

    When you combine peanut butter and chocolate, you have a winner, but add butterfinger hearts on top and you will win everyone's heart. These are easy and very addictive.

    I have made these numerous times throughout the year. I use mini peanut butter cups and drizzle white and semi-chocolate across the top. I plan on using food color to do my daughter's H.S. graduation colors (green and white).

    Peanutty Valentine Cookie Review

    Dianna Redden from Ogden, UT

    I made these for my Son's 3rd grade Valentine Dance. I doubled the recipe and not one was left. All the parents and children kept going back for more. My Son was in charge of putting on all the hearts. We used the Nestle hearts. They were the best. They all asked for the recipe.
