Forget the Snickerdoodle; Have a Snickers Cookie Instead

I was about ten years old when I had my first snickerdoodle cookie. I had no idea what one looked like, but recall being excited by the idea. A cookie, made with a Snickers candy bar? Oh how fantastic!

Imagine my surprise when the cookies arrived and I saw that they were just sugar cookies coated in cinnamon sugar. There were no Snickers bars, or doodles for that matter. While I enjoyed the cookie tremendously, it still left a small void in my heart. A void that could only be filled by cookies stuffed with mini Snickers bar. To get the void-filling, totally tasty recipe — peanut butter cookies with gooey candy chunks! —
