Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

I found this recipe via Pinterest. The peanut butter cookies aspect of this recipe is really yummy. You could leave out the snickers and just make the peanut butter cookies. Or use Reese’s instead of Snickers.

  • 1 cup margarine (do not substitute for butter)
  • 3⁄4  cup white sugar
  • 3⁄4  cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1⁄4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1⁄4 (288 g) cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 bag mini Snickers

Cream together the peanut butter, margarine, brown and white sugar. Then beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture. Chill the dough for about 10 minutes. Unwrap the Snickers. I used a large cookie scoop and pushed the Snickers into the scoop, folding the batter around the bottom. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. At seven minutes turn the cookie sheet so that the cookies cook evenly. Cool completely before serving. Drizzle with chocolate if you so desire.
