I need some suggestions please!

I have been given about 2 cups of Butterfinger candy bar fillng. It's just the orange stuff that's in the candy bars, no chocolate, & it's crushed very fine. What can I do with it? I thought of using it to top ice cream or in a trifile(sp?) with chocolate cake. Anyone have any other idas? I'd greatly appriciate them!!

Crewks, I made a cake and put the crumbs of them in the middle of the layers. They were kinda big pieces. And it turned out really good. if they are really fine. I would use them for ice cream topping. I bet your kids wil love that too.

Butterfinger Cake

1 (16 ounce) frozen pound cake, thawed
12 ounces frozen whipped topping, partially thawed
1 cup creamy peanut butter
8 ounces Butterfinger candy, coarsely chopped
1 cup hot fudge sauce

Carefully cut pound cake into three layers.

Gently fold 2-1/2 cups whipped topping and the peanut butter together. Fold in 1/2 cup of the crushed candy. Place bottom cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with 1/4 cup hot fudge sauce. Gently spread half of peanut butter filling over fudge. Top with middle cake layer; spread with 1/4 cup fudge sauce and remaining filling. Top with remaining cake layer. Spread top and sides of cake with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle remaining candies over cake top. Heat remaining hot fudge sauce and drizzle over top of cake.

Well, I just took the last pan of cookies out of the oven & all I can say right now is OMG!! The Butterfinger stuff really adds a nice crunch & a little something special to the cookies. I only baked about half the dough & put the rest in the freezer for later.

Rainee, that recipe looks wonderful! The only thing is the stuff I have is very fine, almost the consistency of brown sugar & it dosen't have the chocolate coating. Do you think that it would take away from the texture of this? We have some friends comming for dinner Saturday & this looks like the perfect dessert to have then.
