Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

There's just something so wrong about chopping up a candy bar and baking it into a cookie.  (So wrong and yet sooooo good.) 

I'm talking about a Snickers bar baked into a peanut butter cookie!  Seriously - these recipes could only be invented by a serious foodie or a serious sugar addict.  (In this case sally from 

I'm not judging her for it - mostly because I benefit from her cookie insanity.  I know that there are some blog readers out there who will make these cookies tonight.  All I had to say was Snickers and peanut butter.  (You're welcome.)

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped Snickers Peanut Butter Squared candy bars
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. 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, beat the butter and the peanut butter together until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until smooth. 

Add the egg and mix until combined. Add the milk and the vanilla extract and mix again.

Add the flour mixture and beat until flour disappears.

Stir in the chopped Snickers and chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets.  Gently flatten each cookie ball with the palm of your hand.

Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies are slightly brown on the edges.  Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

So here you go - a peanut butter snickers cookie. 

The only issue that I had with these is that the candy bar oozed out of the cookie if it was too close to the edge.  I think that instead of mixing the chopped Snickers into the dough next time, I will just place them on top of the cookies before baking.  Besides, they look a lot cooler when you can see the candy bar in the cookie too.
