Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

We are so dang close to Christmas and my cookie game is still going strong! These Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies are another family favorite. My mom used to call us into the kitchen to unwrap the bite-sized Snickers while she rolled them up in peanut butter cookie dough.

Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer (I have this one) cream the butter, peanut butter, and both sugars until creamy and smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing fully after each addition.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. This will prevent the cookies from being tough.
  4. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). Line a baking sheet (this is my favorite) with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  6. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and roll around 1 bite-sized snickers bar.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough and space the cookies about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, depending on how soft you want the cookies to be. Rotate the pan halfway through baking to ensure even baking.
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow the cookies to cool completely.
