Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are a classic. 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. While you may think nothing could possibly taste better than a classic chocolate chip cookie, try stuffing them with Snickers bars.

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

If you’re looking for an easy way to shake up your chocolate chip cookies, stuffing them with candy bars is a guaranteed way to make something great 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.

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

    • Sally on February 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm

      snickers and choc chip cookies are a match made in heaven, that’s for sure!

  2. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on February 27, 2012 at 12:03 am

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

    Thanks for blogging about these!

    • Sally on February 27, 2012 at 11:11 am

      i will, averie! thanks for the cookie inspiration 🙂

  3. Cait's Plate on February 27, 2012 at 11:18 am

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

    • Sally on February 27, 2012 at 1:56 pm

      thanks cait!!

  4. Katia on February 27, 2012 at 11:47 am

    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 : )

    • Sally on February 27, 2012 at 1:56 pm

      yes ma’am! i have 3 more cookie recipes to share this week, 2 of which are variations of chocolate chip cookies 🙂

  5. Georgia | The Comfort of Cooking on February 27, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    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!

    • Sally on February 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm

      thanks Georgia! god knows where my self control came in. i had the snickers bars for about a week before making the cookies!

  6. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts on February 27, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    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!

    • Sally on February 28, 2012 at 7:23 am

      don’t worry Erin! i do have some healthy recipes to post in the next week or two as well 🙂

  7. Jen @ Pretty Plate on February 28, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Oh WOW! These are so dangerous!

    : ))

  8. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious on March 1, 2012 at 1:41 am

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

  10. michelle on July 29, 2012 at 2:13 pm

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

    • Sally on July 29, 2012 at 11:05 pm

      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. Brenda on September 20, 2012 at 9:37 pm

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

    • Sally on September 21, 2012 at 6:22 am

      Caramel bites would be a great substitute, yes!

  12. Denise Mockabee on September 21, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    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.

    • Sally on September 21, 2012 at 1:06 pm

      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!

    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 🙂

    • Sally on September 23, 2012 at 5:34 pm

      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. Deana on February 20, 2013 at 12:28 am

    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.

    • Sally on February 20, 2013 at 8:58 am

      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!

      • Deana on August 2, 2013 at 12:27 am

        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.

      • Sally on August 2, 2013 at 8:22 am

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

  16. Megan on July 2, 2013 at 3:02 pm

    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.

    • Megan on July 2, 2013 at 3:04 pm

      Oh and I forgot to mention. I used Milky Way unwrapped bites, they were the perfect size for the cookies!

      • Sally on July 2, 2013 at 5:33 pm

        Yum! I’ll have to try them with Milky Way.

  17. Mariam on July 13, 2013 at 7:22 am

    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?

    • Sally on July 14, 2013 at 6:04 pm

      Hi Miriam! I would just pulse the sugar a few times in your food processor. That should be fine then!

  18. Amanda on July 15, 2013 at 2:55 am

    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.

    • Sally on July 15, 2013 at 11:01 am

      Hi Amanda! I am so glad that you love these cookies and that they were such a big success!

  19. Arsha on August 30, 2013 at 11:30 am

    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! 😀

    • Sally on August 30, 2013 at 1:20 pm

      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.

      • Arsha on August 30, 2013 at 1:28 pm

        You picked the perfect day then. Hope you guys have a happily ever after. (:

  20. Shɑnzɑყ on September 1, 2013 at 8:27 am

    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. Libby on November 1, 2013 at 12:37 am

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

    • Sally on November 1, 2013 at 7:51 pm

      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. Chrissie on November 3, 2013 at 3:51 am

    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?

    • Sally on November 3, 2013 at 12:28 pm

      Hi Chrissie! I do not see a question on this post lately from you. Would you mind sending again?

  23. Amy on November 13, 2013 at 4:40 am

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

    • Sally on November 13, 2013 at 7:32 am

      No. It’s 1/2 teaspoon.

  24. Krystal on March 30, 2014 at 9:40 am

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

    • Sally on March 30, 2014 at 1:29 pm

      24 cookies

  25. [email protected] treats on June 25, 2014 at 11:35 am

    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…


    • Sally on June 25, 2014 at 3:59 pm

      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. Cynthia on June 25, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    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! 🙂

    • Sally on June 25, 2014 at 3:54 pm

      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. ZsaZsa on July 29, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    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. Emma on July 16, 2015 at 3:40 am

    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.


    • Sally on July 16, 2015 at 6:30 am

      170 grams
