Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies.  A classic dessert in its simpliest form.

They’re a household favorite, an iconic snack time staple, a timeless milk advocate.

Incredible when they are served warm, cold, in dough form, in baked form, in ice cream, on ice cream, small, and large – no one can resist the comfort of a chocolate chip cookie.

They’re unbeatable.

Until today.   You see, I like to shake things up a bit in the kitchen.  While you may think nothing could possibly be better than a classic chocolate chip cookie, try stuffing them.  With snickers.

Looks certainly are deceiving. 🙂

I got the idea from Averie over at Averie Cooks to stuff chopped snickers bar pieces inside of a chocolate chip cookie. Brilliant! Averie has an incredible repertoire of delicious cookie recipes.

It’s so simple.  Whip up your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough, cradle a snickers piece inside a piece of dough and cover with more dough to create a “lid.”

I used my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, but feel free to use your own.

I love the idea of that smooth Snickers caramel, fluffy nougat, and crunchy peanuts hiding inside a cookie.  The best part is all the action happening on the other side of the cookie.

Look at all that goo!

If you’re looking for an easy way to shake up your chocolate chip cookies, stuffing them with candy bars is a surefire way to make something good… even better. 😉


Snickers-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.


  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170g) salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 fun-sized Snickers bars, cut into 4 pieces each.


  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
  2. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. With an electric mixer or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms (may take a couple minutes of stirring).  Fold in chocolate chips. Do not overmix the dough at any point in this process.
  3. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.  Take 1 tablespoon of dough, press a snickers piece inside the dough.  Cover with more dough, enough to ensure the snickers piece is completely enveloped inside.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. The centers should appear very soft and puffy. Let cool completely and enjoy!

Sally's Tip: Make sure to keep dough cold at all times while the batches are baking. I kept my dough in the refrigerator in between batches.

I loved watching people’s faces as they took the first bite only to find a snickers hiding inside. The best kind of surprise, no?

  1. My husband would re marry me if I made these. Those are his two favorite sweets into one.

  2. They turned out fabulously! Per our email, LMK how the other cookies work for you, too! 🙂

    Thanks for blogging about these!

  3. Oh my gosh now these are my kinda cookie!! They look SO yummy!

  4. I’ve never run into stuffed cookies, really, they look so good!
    Are you planning to show us other lovely cookies this week? Ok, I’ll be here : )

  5. Sally, I can’t get over how delicious these look, and I also can’t get over the self control you must have had not to eat the Snickers bars whole! That is one thing I couldn’t do, I’m afraid. Great recipe though!

  6. You are going to kill me this week! It is the start of my, get back on track with eating better week! Well longer than a week, but I just started, and all these temptations!

  7. Oh WOW! These are so dangerous!

    : ))

  8. I love stuffed cookies. They are very deceiving but once you take that bite into the cookie, it is absolute heaven.

  10. Mine spread out really thin and burned 🙁 but the ones that were edible were magical lol.

    • Grrr… that’s frustrating, Michelle! I’m sorry they didn’t turn out too well. Perhaps take them out of the oven a bit earlier. Even though they may not appear “done”, they certainly firm up as they cool.

  11. They look so good. I have caramal Bites I can use with these. Do you think that will work.

  12. I’m sorry but I am missing something here…it says chocolate chip, but I don’t see any chocolate chips anywhere in the recipie. Am I just not seeing it or should I be “assuming” somthing??? Sorry if I am missing it.

    • Hi Denise! Thanks for pointing that out. When I switched servers in April, a lot of my recipe formatting got messed up and some even got deleted! I updated the recipe for you now. THANK YOU for letting me know, much much much appreciated!

  14. BTW the new pics are incredible! Just noticed them from the relink in the peppermint cookies. That 3rd pic down, I want to dive in! Also saw these blow up on FG 🙂

    • Thank you for noticing Averie! These were a quick photoshoot but I had this CI cookie dough made AND a few snickers bars, so I just went for it!

  15. Hi,
    I used a few of your recipes to make sweets for Valentine’s day to send to my boyfriend, and these came out excellent! I still have a few left and they stay soft even after a week. Everyone I’ve shared them with loves them! The addition of the snickers is a wonderful idea, but I think when I make them again I’ll go a little lighter on the sugar in the recipe. Other than that, they’re fantastic.

    • Hi Deana! That’s wonderful to hear, thank you for letting me know. These will always be a favorite cookie of mine. Let me know how they turn out with a lower amount of sugar. Thanks so much!

      • Hi Sally,
        So I made these per recipe twice, and then another time with less sugar. I meant to go 3/4th on both sugars, but completely forgot to put in white sugar… oops! They stayed stiff and hard in little ball form, so that was a bust! I just made another batch for coworkers per recipe and they came out great! As they’re for others, I don’t mind them being extra sweet 🙂 Next time, I’ll be careful about the sugars again! Thanks for all the great recipes on this site.

      • Hi Deana! I’m glad you tried them again with the correct sugar amounts. Glad everyone loves them!

  16. I just made these with Milky Ways and they turned out wonderfully! The only problem I had was some stuck to the baking sheet and I’m just glad I sprayed it with nonstick spray before starting.

  17. Those look AMAZING!!!
    I have all my ingredients ready to make these cookies, unfortunately when I opened my new pack of light brown sugar, I realized that I accidentally purchased the wrong sugar, the brown sugar is in crystal form, and not soft…..If I do use it, would it give me the same result for the cookies, and if not should I just pulse the sugar in the food processor?

  18. I’m not a baker, but I secretly aspire to be one, so the other night I surprised my family by making these cookies. I don’t bake a lot, but I love the results, so I was extremely glad to have these come out absolutely incredible! SO incredible, in fact, that my mom asked ME for the recipe.

    Thank you so much for these amazing cookies! I had a lot of fun making them and goodness, they are so delicious. They only lasted about 30 hours the first time, so I had to make another batch tonight.

  19. I visit your website more than I check out my Facebook. It’s sort of a religious pilgrimage here, now. 🙂
    I made these cookies today and they were out of the world! So thank you for that. 🙂
    And hey I just noticed, you’ll be getting married on my birthday next year which is so cool cos you’re such an inspiration.
    My sister who basically hates the kitchen started off with these cookies today and she loves baking now! 😀

    • Arsha, that is too funny! I feel like I am following blogs all the time too – more than FB for sure. Your birthday is 9/20? So wonderful. We picked that day because it’s around the time we met two years ago and I love the month of September – mostly for its weather and the leaves changing. So happy your sister enjoys baking – especially after making on of my recipes. I LOVE these cookies.

  20. Wow thank you so much Sally!!✌✌These recipes are SO good….I’m gonna try to make your red velvet cheesecake swirl brownies..✌♥Really delish!!Thank you so much,Sally!!✌✌✌

  21. Those look delicious! Have you tried making them just with chopped snickers instead of using chocolate chips? If so how did that turn out?

    • Hi Libby! I sure have. Chop up a few snickers bars, freeze the chunks, and then add them to the batter. Freezing the chunks will prevent the caramel from melting all over the pan since they won’t be “stuffed” inside the cookies.

  22. Hi Sally
    I asked u a question on here a couple of hours ago. I got an email but it now disappeared. 🙁 did u get it or was it deleted?

  23. Only half a teaspoon of baking soda? Shouldn’t it be 1 teaspoon?

  24. Hi sally! I love ur recipe’s they are all amazing, im just wondering how many cookies does this yield?

  25. Hey Sally,

    Really love this recipe…I have made it so many times for my stepmom and stepsisters and they really loved them!They beg for them like,almost everyday!

    Just one question,is it okay to substitute the choc chips for mint chocolate or white chocolate chips?Just wondering…

    Please tell me soon as I have a very important event coming up soon…


    • You may use mint or white chocolate chips here, yes. I don’t know who good mint would be with the snickers though! Enjoy.

  26. Snickers is my absolute favorite candy bar, and I have all the ingredients. I’m totally trying these when my red velvet cookie batch is finished! But if I want to use full size Snickers bars instead, I assume you can buy 4 and cut them into 8 pieces each? I’m assuming you cut the mini-Snickers down the middle both ways, right? So this recipe yields exactly 32 cookies? Seems a shame to not make more! 🙂

    • Hi Cynthia – this makes about 30 cookies, so I always have a piece or two of Snickers leftover. You can use regular size Snickers bars – about 3 or 4 would be enough if you are not doubling the recipe.

  27. I surprised my mom with these…. (I used your peanut butter cookie recipe as a base and used both milk chocolate chips AND peanut butter chips–talk about DELICIOUSNESS!) She was eating her first cookie while i was talking to her. Then she stopped chewing and said, “Wait…there’s something else in here.” I luved the look on her face when she realized a snickers bar was in there!

    The cookies are so good she thought about eating one for breakfast! This recipe is a keeper!

  28. Hi Sally

    For this recipe you say to use 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) of salted butter. How many grams is a stick of butter in the USA? I’m baking in Australia where our sticks are 250g, so I just want to make sure I’m getting the quantity right.
