Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

Yum yum yum, Snickers are great but I think I prefer Mars but that doesn’t detract from the tastiness of these cookies. Peanut butter AND Snickers all jam-packed in a cookie can only result in a big win.

I’m not sure why but my cookies are ending up square shaped straight out of the oven… not sure what I’m doing wrong there. They’re meant to be circular! Only thing to do is keep trying again I suppose…

 

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

(from browneyedbaker.com)

Yield: About 24 cookies      *I halved the recipe*

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time: 10 to 11 minutes

– 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

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

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

3. 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.

4. Add the flour mixture and beat until flour disappears. Stir in the chopped Snickers and chocolate chips.

5. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. (I weighed mine out to about 2 ounces of dough per cookie.) 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.

6. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for about 5 to 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

    Round cookies are so old fashioned; square is the new circular!
