That day is not today. Today I want a huge, chewy monster… full of peanut chunks, nougat, peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel.
I know that there are people out there who like crispy, flat cookies. But I am not one of them. I need soft, chewy cookies – the kind that literally almost melt in your mouth. These cookies are just that. A good and important thing to note: use FROZEN Peanut Butter Snickers pieces for the batter. Yes, frozen. Make sure those snickers pieces are rock solid or else they will melt uncontrollably and lend a flat cookie.
Look at all that sweet peanut buttery snickers nougat goo! The goo is the best part.
Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies
Makes 24-30 cookies. Cookies stay fresh and soft at room temperature (covered) for up to 1 week.
- 2 cups + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) salted butter, softened to room temp
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1.5 cups chopped Peanut Butter Snickers bars, frozen
Roughly chop peanut butter snickers into pieces. Place in a small bowl and stick in the freezer while you prepare the dough.
Preheat oven to 325F degrees. With an electric or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms. Fold in frozen peanut butter snickers pieces.
Chill dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Scoop 1.5 tablespoons of dough and drop onto ungreased baking sheet or silpat. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. The centers should appear soft and puffy.
*It is imperative to keep dough chilled at all times. Keep dough in the refrigerator between batches.
*It is also imperative to use FROZEN Snickers pieces. If they are not frozen, the chocolate bars will melt and spread within the dough, resulting in a flat, thin cookie.
