Kitchen Experiments: Snickers Cookies

Snickers were one of my favourite chocolates when I was a kid, but somehow the sweet tooth of mine has faded, but I thought Snickers Cookies might be pretty cool though.

Recipe Makes 54 cookies

1 cup caster sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
18 fun-size Snickers bars, each cut into 3 pieces


Preheat over to 180 degree Celsius. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper

Combine sugars, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla essence and mix until smooth.

Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder into peanut butter micture and mix well.

Mould 1 teaspoon of mixture around each piece of Snickers. Place on prepared baking tray, leaving space for it to expand in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on tray. Serve.

* The cookies turned out rather sweet so I think the amount of sugar can be cut by half.
