Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

When you have absolutely no desire to do schoolwork in the middle of the week, the only logical solution is to bake. These cookies are so packed with snickers that they’ll barely stay together, but I’m not complaining. These aren’t healthy by any stretch of the imagination, but you can blame the Hungry Dino for that. (The photos are also his.)

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies (taken from Brown Eyed Baker)

Makes about 2 dozen cookies

  • 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 light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups chopped Snickers candy bars (about 4 regular size bars)
  • ¾ cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

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

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar and mix until smooth. Add egg and mix until combined. Add milk and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

Add flour mixture and stir until combined. Add chocolate chips and Snickers pieces.

Drop by heaping tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets and flatten gently. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are slightly golden brown.

Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
