This is a cookie I have wanted to make for a long time. I used to make them often when the kids were growing up, but haven't made them in years now. I kept picking up snickers bars at the shops to use to make them with, but somehow they always got eaten before I could get the cookies made! Don't ask me how that happened!
If you love peanut butter as much as I love peanut butter, you are going to LOVE these cookies! Just imagine your favourite peanut butter cookie . . . stuffed with a chunk of a snickers bar and then baked until the candy gars are golden brown and crisp on the edges and the candy bar is all melted and gooey inside . . .
Each mouthful brings you crisp peanut butter goodness combined with the moreish caramel scrummy-nuttiness of a snickers bar! I cannot think of anything not to love about them, unless of course you don't like peanut butter and . . . in that case . . . this is not your day. You better look away now!
Doesn't that look positively addictively heavenly? (I am assuming you are a peanut butter lover and a snickers lover if you are still here.) These are almost too dangerous to have around for very long. One good though is, nobody minds you gifting them with a tin of them. You'll have a friend for life!
*Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies*
Cream together both butters and the sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Whisk together the flour, soda and salt. Stir this into the creamed mixture to combine well. Cover and Chill for half an hour.
Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper. Set aside.
Bake for about 15 minutes until the cookies are just beginning to brown around the edges. Allow to cool on the cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before carefully scooping off onto a wire rack to finish cooling completely. Store in an airtight container for up to three days. You can freeze them for about one month if desired.
