These are so good! You have to use the "bite size" candies, not the fun size ones that the recipe calls for. I used snickers and everybody loved them! :)

These were the biggest waste of a perfectly good candy bar. Plus, the recipes was not well written. It said to use fun size candy bars and cover them with a heaping teaspoon of dough. It took a lot more dough than that to cover them.

These are so good! My son said "best cookies EVER"!! The dough itself is really nice, and complements the candy bar pieces very well. I refrigerated the dough between batches since it was fairly soft and greasy with all the pb and butter, and it helped when shaping it around the mini size bars (very important to use mini NOT fun size). I used a bag of mixed snickers (regular, dark chocolate and almond) which was fun so they'd all be a little different. Also make sure to bake only 13 minutes the first batch and check, 13 minutes was PERFECT for my oven, lightly browned and they firmed up while they cooled on the cookie sheet - I did my first batch at 15 minutes and they were crunchy when they cooled and browner than I wanted. The interesting thing I noted between the 2 batches is that 15 minutes the candy bars melt completely into the cookie, at 13 minutes some of the candy bars still held their shape so the cookies were more lumpy and have more solid candy bar pieces in them when cooled. Neither way is necessarily better, I just thought that was interesting to note. These are super yummy and fun to make and eat, will definitely use again!!

I made these cookies as part of our assorted cookie plates for Christmas. The bite size Milky Ways do work better. We also used Rolo candies and rolled half the ball in sugar. Both were BIG hits.

I used the Nestle Treasures because I could not get the bite sized milky ways. I then sent them to a friend of mine in the Navy in a tupperware container. He recieved them a week later and told me that the sailors he works with all want the recipe! It is hard to find cookies that stay fresh when you don't know when the delivery date is going to be, guess these pass the test. They ate em up right away.

I just noticed I have never left a rating for these cookies! I've made them several times and they always impress people. I use Mars bars, and I also made them into non-PB cookies a couple of times for bake sales when we were asked not to use nut products. Thanks for the fabulous idea!

Very good recipe - the cookies were chewy - I baked them for about 15 minutes. Instead of Milky Way bars I used Hershey Kisses- the combination is great! I did not wrap the kisses in the dough. At the end of the 15 minutes I pulled the cookies out and pushed a kiss into the cookie. The kiss settles into the cookie as it cools. These were really good!

I usually prefer cookies warm from the oven and don't care for them once they've cooled. These are an exception. Although they are good warm from the oven, they're much better once they've cooled completely and the candy has set. I followed the recipe exactly (okay, I may have added a smidge more peanut butter!) and ended up with just over two dozen cookies. I used miniature Snickers, but I'm sure these would be good with Milky Way too.
