Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

I love cookies. All different kinds! Sometimes I crave a wholesome, oaty cookie full of things I can feel good about like honey, flax, dried fruits, and oats…. but that day is not today.

These soft and chewy cookies are stuffed with peanut butter Snickers bars! An important note: use FROZEN Peanut Butter Snickers pieces for the cookie dough. Make sure those snickers pieces are rock solid or else they will melt and flatten out the cookies.


Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies


  • 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 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chopped Peanut Butter Snickers bars, frozen


  1. Roughly chop peanut butter snickers into pieces. Place in a small bowl and stick in the freezer while you prepare the dough.
  2. 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.
  3. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  4. Scoop 1.5 tablespoons of dough and drop onto ungreased baking sheet or silicone baking mat.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. The centers will look soft. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Recipe Notes:

It's important to keep the cookie dough chilled at all times, so keep the cookie dough in the refrigerator between batches. It's also important to use FROZEN Snickers bar pieces. If the Snickers bar pieces are not frozen, the chocolate bars will melt and spread within the dough, resulting in a flat, thin cookie.

    you are seriously killing me with this recipe. i absolutely could eat 2 dozen of these babies! ugh i love that the snickers are frozen too..i’m not sure they’d be making it into the cookies, though..haha i love frozen candies so i’d likely be snacking on them like crazy

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:35 pm

      Thanks Julie! I love frozen snickers! I sometimes freeze them and eat them like that!! 🙂

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:37 pm

  4. Averie @ Averie Cooks on May 25, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    these look so good! And yes, the perfect cookie dough base is worth it’s weight in gold. Glad to see you love the Cooks Illustrated base…so do I. The egg plus yolk and the higher brown to white sugar ratio is a winner every time. And so are these Snickers! YUM!!

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      LOVE this cooks illustrated recipe… it produces PERFECT cookies each time! 🙂 Happy memorial day weekend Averie!

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:38 pm

      peanut butter + snickers is perfection! Thanks Sarah!

  6. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust on May 25, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Totally why we can be BFFs. I like a soft chewy cookie too!

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:39 pm

      Judging by all your perfect yummy recipes, we could certainly be BFFs Dorothy!!

  7. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life on May 26, 2012 at 2:54 am

    Those peanut butter snickers are absolutely the best candy bar!!! I have to be very careful buying a big bag of them…because I will eat them all!! They are addicting! I adore soft chewy cookies too! Add in a snickers bar and I am going to need some stretchy pants! Love these lots!!!

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:39 pm

      Haha yes, eating too many of these would require stretchy pants haha!

  8. azura chan on May 26, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    I like cookies too. Strictly must have peanut inside. Otherwise, I wont bite them. LOL!

  9. Baking Serendipity on May 27, 2012 at 12:16 am

    I wish I wanted healthy cookies more often…but cookies like these are always calling my name 🙂 Love them!

    • Sally on May 27, 2012 at 2:43 pm

      I try to make healthy cookies too… but the sugar laden ones always seem to win haha!

  10. ATasteOfMadness on May 28, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    These look EVIL!! In the best way possible! I just made a batch of cupcakes and ate 3 really big ones, but I’d still have room for some of these. YUM!

    • Sally on May 28, 2012 at 8:46 pm

      I hear ya! I feel like I would always have room for a SNICKERS cookie. These peanut butter snickers are too die for in a cookie, too 😉

  11. Reeni on May 28, 2012 at 8:14 pm

  19. Riley on June 28, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    I’m afraid if I make these, I won’t be able to stop eating them. Or perhaps the peanut butter snickers won’t actually make it into the cookies before I devour them!

    • Sally on June 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

      Riley, I don’t know how I managed to save any snickers to throw into these cookies! My boyfriend and I kept eating them all!

  20. Tori on June 28, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Hi! The cookies look gorgeous!!!!! Quick question! How much salt should I put in if I am using unsalted butter? I only have unsalted butter in my fridge… Thank you for the recipe!

    • Sally on January 28, 2013 at 3:26 pm

      Hi Heajin! I would use 1/4 tsp of salt and add it in with the dry ingredients.
