Double Frosted Flake Butterfinger Cookies - crunchy & chewy all at the same time!

 

Does your grocery store have buy one, get one deals?  Mine has them every week and that’s when it’s time to stock up, especially when I have a coupon to add to the savings.  When the sale flyer comes out, I start looking for BOGO deals to put on my shopping list and then check my coupon stash.  There are also 50% off items too good to pass up.  On my last trip to the store, I got a popular brand of chocolate chips as a BOGO deal and used a $.75 coupon.  Score!!

Anyway, back to my Double Frosted Flake Butterfinger Cookies.  I recently saw frosted corn flakes on sale and as I had been thinking of creating a new cookie using this cereal, it was time to take action.  Then I spotted the chocolate frosted flakes and of course, they just jumped into my shopping cart.  Why not use both kinds of cereal?  Yes, that’s what I did.
