Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

Some of my girlfriends here are into game nights. I had never participated in any until moving here but always thought board games were fun. They have turned into a fun and different get together with them. So far a different person has hosted each time and we all bring a snack for the group. This time I was trying to use of the final remnants of our Halloween candy and made Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies. Let's just say they were addicting before I even took them over. One of the girls made funfetti cake waffles, both creative and delicious, another made adorable elmo cupcakes and another made also addicting chili dip with cream cheese, chili, cheddar and onions. We were all pretty stuffed by the end and had a great time catching up and playing ridiculous games.

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies
Yields: 24 cookies
Source: Sweet Pea's Kitchen
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups chopped Snickers candy bars (about 9 fun size bars)
¾ cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the sugars and beat until fully incorporated. Add the egg and mix until combined, about 30 seconds.

Add the milk and the vanilla extract and mix until combined. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and chopped snickers stirring until no flour pockets remain.

Drop by heaping tablespoons (about 2 ounces each) onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Gently flatten each cookie ball with the palm of your hand. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until cookies are slightly brown on the edges.

Cool the cookies on the baking sheets set on a wire rack for 5 before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Pin It!

  1. This sounds amazing! I just pinned it and will keep it as a must try before the end of the year. My grandson would love these cookies.
