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.

  1. 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

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

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

  3. snow days and baking are just made for each other, aren’t they? πŸ™‚ It’s snowing here in Wisconsin too…so I will make the best of things and get my oven cranking!
    cathy b.
    P.S. My Mister’s fav “treat” is snickers…I can see him being very excited about having these cookies around!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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! πŸ˜‰

  7. 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 πŸ˜‰

  8. 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!

  9. 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 πŸ™‚

  10. 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!

  11. 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!

  12. 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! πŸ™‚

  13. 16 inches of snow…oh my goodness! No wonder you stayed inside and made these amazing cookies! These look lovely. I know my household would love these so I have bookmarked them. πŸ™‚ Stay warm!!

  14. I can’t believe you guys got 16 inches over there. We didn’t even get an inch, though it did snow for quite a while and was yucky out, it just wasn’t sticking.
    Perfect cookies!

  15. You have excellent timing! My daughter just did some testing, and we found out she has outgrown her peanut allergy- wahoo! She is SUPPOSED to eat pb now to keep it from coming back. I’m going to make these for her to celebrate!

  16. How did you know I was just looking for a new peanut butter cookie recipe?! This looks splendid and it’s next on my baking to-do list πŸ™‚

  17. Peanut butter and chocolate is the best combination ever! Growing up snickers was always my favorite candy bar. I didn’t know they came out with a pb snickers. Yum, your cookies look wonderful! Perfect use of a snowy day πŸ™‚

  18. Those look amazing…. Snickers are by far my favourite candy bar, and Peanut butter is by far my favourite anything. My only fear is that I would eat half the cookie dough before I baked them, and then the other half once they’re baked. The shame and guilt might be worth it though :).

  19. I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this! Its genius and I will definitely be making these! Thanks for sharing : )

  20. We made the Snicker cookies for a dinner invite to a friends house, and they were amazing!! One man ate 5 of them and said, “These are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted!”. In fact some of the teenagers had to tell him to stop because others wanted some.
    Thanks for sharing..definately going to print and file this one!

  21. Oh, man…I made these last week and they are officially, totally, 100% my new FAVORITE cookie! Thank you!!! They are deliciously gooey and soft and yummy….they didn’t last long at my house!!

  22. Mmm, I can’t wait to serve these to my boyfriend and surprise him when he takes a bite and recognizes it as snickers! Thanks for the fresh look on PB cookies.

  23. I’m reading this and trying to remember what snow is! June in the South…. But hey the AC is on I could eat a whole tray of these right out of the oven.

  24. Ooooohhhh..these sounds good. Snickers are one of my favorites…
    I love your recipes..make them often.. Wonder what this March (2012) brings to us..we’ve had 4″ so far this whole winter, and it is still 41 degrees at 8pm…it’s almost depressing…

  25. Hi there!I am at work surfing around your personal blog page from my own new iphone! Only wish to say I enjoy reading through your current blog and also take a look in front to all your posts! Keep up this outstanding job

  26. These look delish! Do u recommend freezing the snickers bars before mixing into the dough ? AND keeping the dough in the fridge between baking? I ask cause wouldn’t room temp candy bars cause the cookies to flatten when baking? Thanks for your help & your wonderful recipes!
