Home Cooking - Snickers Cookies

When I first came across this recipe, the first thought that popped into my head was,"This is so mmee!" Ever since I was small, my favourite candy bars has been Peanut Slabs, Picnics and of course Snickers bars. So a big thank you very much to Susan at Food Blogga and Michelle from Scribbit for posting up this recipe for Snickers Cookies.

The smell of these cookies wafting throughout the house is just one of the many perks when baking these cookies. Eating them warm out of the oven is heavenly with a mixture of soft cookie and sticky, crunchy and chewy bites of Snickers. This is definitly a cookie worth baking and reasonably easy to make. Here Comes the Ingredients.

(Makes around 35 cookies)
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c peanut butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 c plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
8-10 Fun sized Snickers, chopped into small pieces

Preheat oven to 190 degrees C and prepare a baking tray with baking paper. Cut each of the fun sized Snickers bars into 6 pieces.

Combine the sugars, butters and eggs into a mixing bowl and mix well (again I don't have any of that valuable vanilla extract so I just left it out... I really should get some sometime *nods*). Once the mixture is well-mixed add in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix again until well blended. Stir in the pieces of Snickers bars.

Roll the dough into small balls in your palms and space evenly on the baking tray as they will spread out when baking. If dough becomes sticky, run your hands under some warm water.

Bake about 11-13 minutes, until the cookies become golden brown and slightly puffy and then allow to cool before serving!

My cookies aren't always perfect in shape and size >_< but their aroma and taste is able to compensate for that.

Mmmmm warm and soft with a glass of cold milk ^^! or even when they cooled a very nice crumbly texture still with the chewy and sticky Snickers bites. One problem with Snickers is that they can get stuck in between teeth quite easily but even so I still eat them *munch*.
