“I grew up thinking that a snickerdoodle involved an actual Snickers, and a white cookie with cinnamon sugar was called something else. I have been educated, but the name still sticks. These are large peanut butter cookies with your favorite fun size candy bar stuffed in the middle. ”

Original recipe yields 24 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Beat together the butter, peanut butter, 2 cups white sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl, stirring until well mixed and creamy. Mix in the vanilla extract and eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix the flour mixture, one cup at a time, into the butter mixture, and stir until you have a smooth dough.
  4. Scoop up 1/4 cup of dough per cookie, and form it into a ball around a fun size candy bar. Set the balls onto a baking sheet at least 6 inches apart, and flatten each ball with a fork in a cross-hatch pattern, making sure the cookie dough is still fully covering the candy bar. Sprinkle each cookie with about 1/2 teaspoon white sugar.
  5. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven until the cookies are slightly browned around the edges, 12 to 14 minutes.

Just a note to anyone making these cookies--> they're delicious, but if you use the entire recipe, you will probably end up with 50+ cookies, not 24! I cut the recipe in half because I was only planning on making a dozen or so with my family, and ended up with 30 large cookies! Just a note of warning...the recipe is delicious though, and definitely one of my favorites to use. I'd definitely recommend it to others.



These taste great! My mom has made these for a couple years now, she made her own recipe it's pretty cool. She's thinking of trying different candy bars next time too.



the dough tastes great raw, but the cookie was a little disappointing. i halved the recipe and used mini snickers, but i needed more than one bag of candy to use up the dough. i found it best to just roll the dough around the candy just so it was covered. too much dough meant most of the cookie was plain and snicker-less. i didnt make a crosshatch patter on the top either: it was too hard to make it look pretty with the hard snicker inside. the peanut butter cookie dough lacked peanut butter flavor and would be a pretty bland cookie alone. definitely needs some adjustments. i might try my favorite pb cookie recipe with the snickers inside next time, but this recipe was not one i'll be making again.
