These fabulous big cookies stuffed with a candy bar are incredible.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 1 1/4 cups peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 20 fun size Snicker candy bars (unwrapped)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (milk chocolate)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 F.

  3. In a large bowl, beat granulated sugar and brown sugar with butter and peanut butter until fluffy.

  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla, then add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Cover dough and chill for at least 30 minutes, preferably 4 to 6 hours.

  5. Shape a scant 1/4 cup of dough around each unwrapped candy bar. Be sure that the candy bar is completely covered with dough, or it will melt out onto the cookie sheet during baking.

  6. Place the balls of dough 4 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, about 9 cookies per sheet. ​​​

  7. Bake the large cookies at 375 F for 13 to 15 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown with some slightly darker brown spots.

  8.  Cool 10 minutes, then remove from cookie sheets using a large spatula and cool on wire racks.

  9. Place milk chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute; remove and stir. Microwave for 30 seconds longer on high; remove and stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.
