Peanut Butter Snickers Suprise Cookies

Love, love, love these cookies. How can you go wrong with the combination of peanut butter cookies and snickers? Chewy peanut butter cookie, sweetness of the chocolate, gooey caramel, and the crunch of the peanuts! Yum-O!

The only downfall about these cookies is the numerous steps it takes to reach the finished product. Unwrap miniature snickers, shape dough around snickers, bake, cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and drizzle with chocolate. Whew! That is the exact reason why we make these at our annual mother-daughter baking day while the guys are gone hunting. Definitely need three of us working on these. Especially because we triple the batch and make over a hundred.

Peanut Butter Snickers Surprise Cookies

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 pkg (13 ounces) miniature Snickers
1 pkg Dove milk chocolates, melted

Combine butter, peanut butter, and sugars using a mixer on meadium speed until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Mix in flour, salt, and baking soda. Cover and chill dough for 2-3 hours.

Unwrap all of the miniature snickers. Take approximately one tablespoon of dough and flatten in the palm of your hand. Place a snickers in the middle of the dough and form the dough into a ball around the snickers. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

After cookies have cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar (works well to use a fine mesh sieve) and drizzle with melted dove chocolates.
