Found this little gem in the coupon section years ago from snickers. This are delicious cookies with a perfect blend of peanut and chocolate. I'm going to try to make these cookies with sunbutter (creamed sunflower seeds) and Milky Ways this year since we can't do the peanut thing.
Last time I made these (2004) the elementary/junior high girls baking with me thought these were the best cookies ever to make - and easy too. Sure do miss these cookies. Make a batch and eat one for me.
1 c Butter, softened
1 c Creamy peanut butter
1 c Light brown sugar
1 c Sugar
1 t Vanilla
3 1/2 c Flour, sifted
1 t Baking soda
1/2 t Salt
1 pkg Snickers miniatures
Combine the butter, peanut butter and sugars using a mixer on medium to low speed until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Then mix in flour, salt, and baking soda.
Cover and chill dough for 2 – 3 hours. Unwrap Snickers miniatures. Remove dough from fridge and divide into 1 T pieces and flatten. Form the dough into a ball around each candy bar.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on making rack. Drizzle cookies with melted chocolate if desired.
