Peanut butter cookies with chopped up Snickers candy bars and chocolate chips! Peanut butter lover’s will go crazy for these 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.

Maria, these look amazing!! My fave food groups: cookies, chocolate, peanut butter, and snickers bars all rolled into one. THANK YOU! 🙂
Snickers were always my favorite candy bar growing up. I would devour these!
What a delicious treat on a snow day! I love snow day baking!
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
i’m totally making these for my office tonight…holy yum!
and i can’t believe y’all got 16 inches. in colorado they were warning everyone that we’d be getting 4-6 and we got NOTHING. thank goodness!
I haven’t seen the new Snickers yet. My kids would love them, especially in a cookie. Thanks for linking to my cookies!
Hooray for snow day! I’m sure your home smelled awesome 🙂
Boo to 16 inches of snow…but yay for an excuse to stay inside and make cookies with Snickers!! YUM.
Oh my, Maria. Peanut Butter Snickers in the dough. It’s like a new take on monster cookies. Yum.
2 peanut butter snickers cookies on the same day- I think this means I need to get baking:-)
I’m still stuck on the snow thing. It’s in the 70s here. SNOW?!
I love your props 😉 My husband would probably love these, I’m not a peanut butter cookie person but, they definitely sound yummy ;0)
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!
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.
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!
We really should talk more. Have you any idea what I posted for today???
I have three boys and a husband. I really need this recipe!
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.
Sounds delicious! I think snickers sound like a great addition to PB cookies.
Mmmm, nothing like a stuffed cookie!
Love snickers, love cookies = these are right up my alley 🙂
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.
I’d love two of your cookies and two of Lori’s cookies for the ultimate snicker cookie throwdown. Hehehe
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.
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! 😉
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 😉
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!
Snickers were always my fav ice cream topping when I was a kid. I would probably adore these!
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!
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 🙂
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!
these look beyond amazing! Darn “Biggest Loser” competition at work!
These look so soft and delicious! I made something similar a couple years ago and now I’m totally craving them again!!
I love Snickers anything! Those cookies look great!
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!
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!
Oh hell, now I neeeed these!
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! 🙂
Peanut butter and snickers are two of my favorite things! These look fabulous.
Oh golly, what a delicious looking cookie! I haven’t tried the new Snickers yet, but I think I will now…in cookie form! 🙂
Ok these look delicious!!! This is a must make for me this weekend! Thank you for sharing!
Wow – my brother would flip for these! I will definitely have to make them for him! Thanks for the inspiration!
Great idea! I bet the caramel makes the chocolate chip cookies taste so much better (as if that were even possible)!
Wow what a beautiful cookie Maria! I made some with snickers and milky ways last year, and OMG 🙂
I think I would eat all of these cookies. And that’s why I’m going to wait to make them until I have to feed a crowd!! They look so good!
I loooove snickers! These look awesome.
These look lovely!
Fun cookies Maria. You know I am wishing I had your snow 😉
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. 🙂 Stay warm!!
What a perfect use of a snow day 🙂 Living in Phoenix, I can’t even imagine that much snow! But I’ll definitely take any excuse to get one of these cookies in my life!
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.
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!
Those look really good. I don’t think we have Snickers here. 🙁 I really want cookies right now.
I surfed in from Cocktail Hour.
I don’t know how you come up with this stuff, but I’m impressed! 🙂
These look fabulous! Hope i get to see you next week
Let me know what day and I will put it on my calendar!
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 🙂
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 🙂
Delicious! A great way to beat the snowy gloom.
Those peanut butter snickers are addictive, I bet they are incredible in this cookie! 🙂 Miss you, Maria! 🙂
Yum. They look incredible! Reminds me of my childhood making peanut butter cookies with my mom. Thanks for sharing!
Sorry to hear about all of the snow… But at least you got some great cookies out of it. I always love baking when it’s snowy outside. And, these cookies look divine! My hubby would devour them.
YOu had me at Peanut Butter. When you said snickers I think I cried a little. AWESOME!!!
A cookie and a snickers bar. You’ve got my attention!
Oh my do those look good! Candy was just meant to go in cookies. 🙂 Thank you for listing my Snickers Blondies!
drool!!! i love Snickers. they also remind me of my dad.
I still don’t know how you stay so skinny, girl! Love these cookies.
I enjoy the snow more from the kitchen, too! These look delicious and so yummy! I’ll have to try them!
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 :).
I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this! Its genius and I will definitely be making these! Thanks for sharing : )
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!
Ha! I am so glad the cookies were a hit. Sometimes it is hard to share:)
Totally, completely, 100% up my alley. Definitely making these this week!
Wow!! Totally up my alley! I printed to make tomorrow. thank you for sharing.
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!!
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.
We made these the other day and they were so Yummy!
Glad you liked the cookies!
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.
I’m going to try to ignore these beauties… they just look too good to resist!
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…
Fantastic cookies! The whole family loved them! Tasted like they came from a bakery 🙂
Happy PB Cookie Day, Maria! I recently made PB Snickers cookies as well – only using the Cooks Illustrated chocolate chip cookie recipe with peanut butter snickers. Will add PB to the dough next time to get the full effect. 🙂
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
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!
My daughter and I just made these, they are soooo good, can’t stop eating them. Good way to use leftover Halloween candy.
Made these today. I did leave out the chocolate chips. They are wonderful, tender and addicting cookies.
These are some of the best cookies I’ve ever made and eaten. They’re super yummy and so easy to make.
