Snickers Surprise Cookies

Snickers Surprise Cookies

Happy Halloween! Here is my cookie suggestion for what to do with leftover fun-size candy bars. I wish I knew where this recipe comes from, but I've had it in my recipe box for too long, copied from somewhere. It is delicious - peanut butter cookies filled with mini candy bars, which melt and then become the soft chewy centers of the cookies.

Snickers Surprises

2 sticks butter, room temp (1 cup)
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 pkg (13 oz) Snickers miniatures

1. Combine butter, peanut butter, and sugars until light and fluffy.
2. Add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined.
3. Mix in flour, salt, and baking soda (gradually is best!).
4. Cover and chill dough 2-3 hours.
5. Remove dough from fridge. Divide into 1-Tbsp pieces, and flatten. Place an unwrapped Snickers on each.
6. Form the dough into a ball around each Snickers.
7. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

Mine are usually large enough that they require 15-16 minutes.

Mmm. Those look good. I have a bunch of Reese Peanut Butter Cups leftover from Halloween, and I think this might be the perfect way to use them up!

These cookies are so good. I have tryed them with milky ways and they turned out so delicious.
I have known about this recipe for about 4 years and the first time I saw it was in a magazine that was giving halloween cookie ideas. Not sure what magazine it was, but the cookies have always turned out so good. They are always a hit when I make them.
