"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. " — Jamie

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.
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.
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.
I just did chocolate chips... no snickers it is a nice cookie something different. I did cut ingredents in 1/2 and made over 4 doz.
Everyone that i have gave these to loved them and has asked for the recipe. only difference is i used the mini ones and made smaller cookies
these were phenominal! we made ours with milky way minis,and also made a few with caramels that have frosting in the middle (called cow tails or bullseye caramels around here) for someone who can't eat choclate..... they were super!
OK, this recipe really does make A LOT! I cut it in half and we still had more than enough. It's a good cookie, not the most fantastic, but darn nice! The peanut butter flavor is not strong but that's OK. I don't think I used a full 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie. I just used enough to cover up the candy bar and called that good. Make sure you use the sugar on top as it really makes the cookie!
I liked very much the taste of these cookies. I wish I could have a little of the Snickers bar with every bite of the cookie, however. The dough was easy to work with, and I did cut back the size of the cookie quite a bit. This does give me ideas about how to make these so I get that Snickers taste more often! Thanks, Jamie!
