Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Unwrap all the mini candy bars.
  2. Empty the 2 cake mixes into a large bowl, and stir eggs, vegetable oil, and water into the mixes. The batter will be stiff. Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into 1-inch balls. Push a mini candy bar into the cookie ball, and carefully cover the entire candy piece with dough. If any chocolate is visible, the cookie will leak. Place the filled cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 11 minutes. Cookies will not look brown on top. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets before removing to finish cooling on racks.

These were so easy and are really good. Don't let sit on the cookie sheet too long as the bottoms will get dark. Tried with milky way candies as well for those allergic to nuts.

I thought these cookies were quite easy and fun! They were very tasty and I did let them just start to get a hint browned on the top. This was a quick recipe to make.

i though this recipe was OK. I would suggest using any kind of candy bar but the Snickers made it better. also for the whole cookie i would say have 2:3 of the cookie be of candy. if not it just is'nt as good and the ends get thrown out.
