Snicker Stuffed Cookie Recipe
My friend turned me on to the Snicker Stuffed Cookie years ago. I’ve made very little tweaks to this recipe; just a couple of minor ones. It didn’t need much in the way of tweaks. It’s yum, yum good….
It’s a peanut butter cookie wrapped around a snickers candy bite with chocolate glaze drizzled on top! My oh my…what else can you say? It’s like a little bite of candy heaven.
These are a holiday staple in my house. I make these cookies for cookie exchanges, always a hit, and our cookie platters. When I ask my kids for their top three cookie picks when the holidays roll around, this recipe definitely makes the cut.
Here is the recipe to mix, stuff and bake…
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar, light and packed measurement
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 60 miniature, bite size, Snickers candies
- 1 cup confectioner's sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Holiday sprinkles (optional)
Using an electric mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract together.
In a separate bowl stir together the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture until all of the ingredients are mixed well.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Unwrap the candies.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Take some batter and roll it around each candy using the palm of your hands to create a cookie ball with the candy inside.
Place the uncooked cookies on the line baking sheet several inches a part from each other.
Bake the cookies for 12 minutes. Let them set on the pan for 10 minutes before removing them. Place them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
Once the cookies are fully cooled, stir the 1 cup of confectioner's sugar together with the cocoa powder until the cocoa powder and sugar are mixed well. Add in the milk and stir until the ingredients create a glaze.
Drizzle the glaze on top of the cookies and sprinkle them with sprinkles immediately before the glaze sets.
Let the glaze set before serving or storing.
The Bread Trick! Keep these cookies soft by adding a piece of bread into your airtight storage container. My mom taught me this trick and it really does work. It prevents the cookies from going stale = brilliantly simple. I wonder who came up with this idea? It’s been passed down through the generations so it’s an oldie, but a goodie.
More Stuffed Cookies? Now this is my cookie recipe :). It’s a Reese’s Stuffed Chocolate Cookie! These are YUMMY. I think they became a new family favorite. The soft chocolate cookie wrapped and baked around a miniature Reese’s candy with melted Reese’s peanut butter chips on top are just the perfect combination if you like peanut butter and chocolate.
