21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

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! —

I totally agree!!! I hate cream of tartar and can't bear the sight of it - these snickers cookies are such a wonderful breath of fresh (and cream of tartar-less) air.

Loved these cookies. Made them for a group of 5th grade girls. They thought they were so cool--and delicious. They wanted to eat them just to find out if there were really Snickers inside. Yours look more even than mine. There was a hump in the middle from the snickers bar.

BuzzSugar.. thanks for the tip about cutting the bars into pieces first- I bet that makes the cookies smaller, too.

I used to make a totally easy, cheater version of this using pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough and mini milky ways. Mini peanut butter cups work, too. I found that cutting the candy pieces into quarters first helped them spread out through the inside of the cookies while they baked.
