Butterfinger Cookie Cake

I made this cake for my son's 18th birthday.  It is cookies layered with  Butterfingers and pudding. The pudding makes the cookies soft like cake in about 8 hours.  This is similar to my Butterfinger Dessert,  using chocolate chip cookies instead of angle food cake. So be warned that this will be a little heavy and rich, but oh it is soooo good!

So here is how you make it.

Make a batch of chocolate chip cookies, I have the original Nestle Toll House Recipe here.
make sure the cookies are cool.

Make the pudding:
1 Large box vanilla instant pudding mix
3 Cups milk
1 Large tub of Cool Whip
About 6-8 Butterfingers candy bars or a package of fun size bars.

Combine milk and pudding mix. Crush candy bars and add to pudding mix ( you can reserve some for garnish). Fold in Cool Whip.

I made my cake on a regular dinner plate. Put a small amount of pudding on the plate, add a layer of cookies. Cover cookies with pudding, Repeat adding cookies and pudding. finishing with pudding and garnish with crushed Butterfinger.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Cookies will get soft. Keep refridgerated.
