Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

When I woke up yesterday morning, I looked out the window and was blinded by the white, glistening snow that was covering our trees and yard. The view was beautiful, but it is March. I would rather wake up to chirping birds and blooming flowers. We didn’t get a light dusting either, we had 16 inches of fresh snow at our house. Josh headed outside to shovel the driveway, while I got out the butter. I was going to make the most of my snow day by baking Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies.

I am glad I didn’t have to go outside to brave the snow. I was perfectly content baking in my kitchen. I recently bought a few of the new Snickers Peanut Butter Squared candy bars at the store. I chopped them up to mix them into my peanut butter cookies. I also stirred in milk chocolate chips.

If you like peanut butter and chocolate, these are the cookies for you. The peanut butter cookies are soft and filled with Snickers chunks and chocolate chips. After tasting a peanut butter Snickers cookie, I didn’t mind the snow. I am glad I was able to spend the day baking and eating cookies.

    Snow?! Ridiculous! I hope it melts quickly. I love the idea of chopping up a candy bar and using it in cookies- how yummy. You always make the best cookie creations

  6. Barbara Bakes — March 9, 2011 @ 6:33 am

    I haven’t seen the new Snickers yet. My kids would love them, especially in a cookie. Thanks for linking to my cookies!

    Boo to 16 inches of snow…but yay for an excuse to stay inside and make cookies with Snickers!! YUM.

  9. Shaina — March 9, 2011 @ 6:51 am

    Oh my, Maria. Peanut Butter Snickers in the dough. It’s like a new take on monster cookies. Yum.

  10. Lauren at Keep It Sweet — March 9, 2011 @ 6:53 am

    2 peanut butter snickers cookies on the same day- I think this means I need to get baking:-)

  11. rachel — March 9, 2011 @ 6:55 am

    I’m still stuck on the snow thing. It’s in the 70s here. SNOW?!

    I love your props ๐Ÿ˜‰ My husband would probably love these, I’m not a peanut butter cookie person but, they definitely sound yummy ;0)

  12. Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen — March 9, 2011 @ 7:04 am

    Like you I am ready for spring and no more snow! Your cookies look fantastic, I made pb cookies too, and I added Butterfingers. I guess we were on a similar wave length!

  13. Brooke (Baking with Basil) — March 9, 2011 @ 7:08 am

    Perfect way to spend a snow day! The cookies sound delightful especially if consumed infront of a warm fire. Hope those March mornings you mentioned come sooner rather than later for you.

  14. cathyb@brightbakes — March 9, 2011 @ 7:19 am

    snow days and baking are just made for each other, aren’t they? :) It’s snowing here in Wisconsin too…so I will make the best of things and get my oven cranking!

    P.S. My Mister’s fav “treat” is snickers…I can see him being very excited about having these cookies around!

  15. Lori @ RecipeGirl — March 9, 2011 @ 7:20 am

    We really should talk more. Have you any idea what I posted for today???

  16. The Italian Dish — March 9, 2011 @ 7:27 am

    I have three boys and a husband. I really need this recipe!

  17. Amber Carlson — March 9, 2011 @ 7:29 am

    Love this idea. Made your tortellini soup and its been a hit several times. Getting ready to try your Buttermilk Banana bread. Thanks for being so talented and sharing your wonderful recipes. I dont know how I stumbled across your site several years ago but you are one of my favorites.

      Thanks Amber! I am glad you are enjoying our recipes.

  18. Sarah — March 9, 2011 @ 7:31 am

    Sounds delicious! I think snickers sound like a great addition to PB cookies.

  19. Jenny Flake — March 9, 2011 @ 7:35 am

    Mmmm, nothing like a stuffed cookie!

  20. brandi — March 9, 2011 @ 7:44 am

    Love snickers, love cookies = these are right up my alley :)

  21. Cookbook Queen — March 9, 2011 @ 7:48 am

    Snickers Squared? Why don’t I know about these?! I’m so out of the loop.

    This cookies look MIGHTY FINE. I’m sooo with you on the snow day. My first instinct on a snow day is to bake cookies, not shovel. Not even stick a big toe outside, if we’re being honest.

  22. EatLiveRun — March 9, 2011 @ 8:30 am

    I’d love two of your cookies and two of Lori’s cookies for the ultimate snicker cookie throwdown. Hehehe

  23. Cookin' Canuck — March 9, 2011 @ 8:40 am

    As soon as I saw the snow yesterday, I decided all I wanted to do was bake, too. We should have baked together! Then I could have snagged some of these cookies.

  24. Blog is the New Black — March 9, 2011 @ 8:59 am

    A winner!

  25. Trista Bytheway — March 9, 2011 @ 9:17 am

    Those look delicious, but it seems a little mean. I mean, Josh is out shoveling the driveway and you’re inside making cookies he can’t even eat! Torture! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Tickled Red — March 9, 2011 @ 9:17 am

    Oh my goodness! I need a plate of these on my desk at work to go with my coffee breaks. Make that hidden way back in my file cabinet…I’m not sharing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. megan — March 9, 2011 @ 9:21 am

    Snickers are my daughters boyfriends favorite candy bar. I’ll have to get some and let her make him some of these cookies. Then I can sneak one!

  28. Trish — March 9, 2011 @ 9:41 am

    Snickers were always my fav ice cream topping when I was a kid. I would probably adore these!

  29. Such willpower and self control you exerted to chop up the Snickers for cookies! I would have just eaten them all right then and there, haha. Thank you, though, for sharing these delicious cookies… They’re calling my name this morning!

  30. Tracey — March 9, 2011 @ 10:48 am

    Wow, can’t believe you got so much snow! Ours just finally melted so I’m hoping we don’t get any more. Your cookies look delicious – great treat for a snow day :)

  31. Joanne — March 9, 2011 @ 11:00 am

    16 inches is insane!! but definitely the perfect cookie-eating weather. I haven’t had the PB snickers bars yet but I can tell that these cookies were delicious!

  32. Johanna — March 9, 2011 @ 11:09 am

    these look beyond amazing! Darn “Biggest Loser” competition at work!

  33. Sues — March 9, 2011 @ 12:45 pm

    These look so soft and delicious! I made something similar a couple years ago and now I’m totally craving them again!!

  34. Evil Shenanigans — March 9, 2011 @ 1:09 pm

    I love Snickers anything! Those cookies look great!

  35. Christina — March 9, 2011 @ 1:26 pm

    I would be very upset to have 16 inches of fresh snow! At least you were able to do something productive and make this amazing cookies- I love snickers, these sound like the perfect cookies for me!

  36. Ann — March 9, 2011 @ 1:39 pm

    You made fantastic use of your snow day. I’ve been looking for a great peanut butter cookie recipe. I think that I found one!

  37. Elle — March 9, 2011 @ 1:51 pm

    Oh hell, now I neeeed these!

  38. Kara — March 9, 2011 @ 2:07 pm

    Aw dang, I just got home from the grocery store. Wish I would have seen this recipe before I left so I would have known to pick up some of those Snickers. These look fabulous!!
    Sorry you got so much snow. We got some too, but most of it melted off today. Thank goodness! :)

  39. Sara — March 9, 2011 @ 2:12 pm

    Peanut butter and snickers are two of my favorite things! These look fabulous.

  40. Amy (Sing For Your Supper) — March 9, 2011 @ 2:20 pm

    Oh golly, what a delicious looking cookie! I haven’t tried the new Snickers yet, but I think I will now…in cookie form! :)
