We just wrapped up Halloween, and were left with a small bag of about 10 fun size snickers candy bars! So today, I decided to chop them up and add them to my favorite cookie recipe! These Snickers Cookies did not disappoint!
While you can use the traditional mini snickers, I actually used a variety bag from Halloween that included the Snickers original, peanut butter, and almond like this bag.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 medium eggs
- 2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 10 mini snickers candy bars, chopped
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
- Mix butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs
- Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and fold into the sugar.
- With a wooden spoon, gently mix in the chopped snickers candy bar and chocolate chips.
- Scoop onto a baking sheet,with the largest cookie scoop (3 tablespoons per scoop)
- Bake at 400 degrees for 10-11 minutes. check at 10 minutes. If the tops are starting to turn brown, they are done.
- Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
This cookie also had some corn starch. While that might seem strange for a cookie recipe, I actually have scoured and investigated gourmet cookie recipes for years now, and found that many of them included corn starch. According to this blog, the corn starch assists in making the dough more “tender”, whatever that means!
My favorite cookie bakery right now is Crumbl, and while I don’t know their recipe, I do think these cookies TASTE like their recipe! They have that buttery soft crisp to the outside, and completely chewy on the inside!
And finally, I made these cookies VERY LARGE! Including large chunks of the candy bar meant I wanted enough dough with each cookie to not just b a chunk of candy bar. My largest cookie scoop (like the biggest one in this set from Amazon) is 3 tablespoons in volume. I would normally use it as an ice cream scoop, but it worked perfectly here.
Snickers cookies on a Sunday afternoon is always a great idea! You can bring these snickers cookies to a family party, a neighborhood party, or for any of your holiday parties coming up. It’s a great way to use those mini snickers bars, and enjoy them in a cookie.
I’d love to know what you think of these cookies! Try this recipe, bookmark it and then come back and leave a review!
