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. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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

  4. 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!
