Not Your Typical Peanut Butter Cookie

These are one of my favorite types of cookies. I love anything with peanut butter to begin with; combine that with one of my favorite candy bars - Snickers - and you've got one great cookie :)

This recipe can easily be adapted to include any other candy bar... if you don't like Snickers, try these with Milky Way bars, they are just as good. Another idea would be to include either a Reese's peanut butter cup, or chopped up Reese's cups. The recipe calls for "fun size" bars but those are way too big. You need to use the "bite size" pieces. You could use the fun size bars, but you'll just have to cut them in half first.

Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies
from Allrecipes

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
36 fun size bars milk chocolate covered caramel and nougat candy (I used bite size Snickers)

Cream together white sugar, brown sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla, peanut butter and the egg.

Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Wrap 1 heaping teaspoon of dough (I used a 2-tsp cookie scoop) around a bite sized milk chocolate covered caramel and nougat candy bar. Bake 13-16 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Let cool 5 minutes before removing from pan.


  1. I made these, they are VERY good, I used snickers and babe ruth, thanks for sharing the recipe :-)

  2. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh! Thanks or mentioning them on my blog, they look beyond yummy! Next time I'll do PB cookies I'll sure use this idea!

  3. I agree that these would make a fantastic thing to sell at a bake sale!!! All kids love chocolate bars; all kids love cookies - so combine the two and you've got very happy kids ;)

    Great recipe, where did you find it? I had my first Snickers yesterday and wasn't so keen - I'd make these with boring old Milky Way, I think.
