Peanut Butter Snicker Cookies


These cookies were one the first things my husband made for me when were dating. I had never had anything quite like them. We have since made them for many many occasions. They have become a mandatory item when visiting with my family. I fear they may be happier to see them then me sometimes. πŸ™‚ I used a base Peanut Butter cookie recipe from Wit & Whistle.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 1/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup Margarine (do not substitute to get correct consistency)

  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 cup chocolate chips (for melting)


  • Preheat oven 375 degrees
  • Cream together the peanut butter, margarine, brown and white sugar. Then beat in eggs and vanilla
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture.
  • Unwrap mini Snickers
  • Scoop about a TBS of dough and roll in a ball. Then cup in palm and press Snickers into middle. Cover bottom with cookie and shape into a round disk.
  • Pop cookies on cookie sheet into fridge for about 3 minutes before baking (It helped to hold shape better)
  • Bake for 9 minutes, turn and bake 3 minutes more (I know this seems oddly specific but this worked perfectly for me).
  • Allow cookies to cool. Melt chocolate chips and drizzle on top.


  1. I think the recipe sound wonderful. However, there is no mention of snickers in the ingredient section of the recipe. How many, what size, etc.?

    • So sorry for the oversight (I corrected it on the page). I used one bag of the mini Snickers and it was more than enough with some left over for snacking πŸ™‚

  2. They look delicious and it’s lovely that these cookies bring back special memories for you! My husband cooked spagetthi for me when we just started dating… I will never forget them, they were terrible, but I still was happy he was trying to cook for me :-)!

    • Hi Marian!

      Thank you very much. The cookies do hold a special place in my memory. What a sweet story about your husbands efforts in the kitchen. πŸ™‚ I hope you and your family are all well.

      Take care

  3. Hi Nicole! These cookies look delicious and I definitely want to try and cook them, but I have to ask something, I hope it’s not too stupid, but can you fit an entire mini snikers on each cookie?! At first I thought you would chop them, but then you didn’t mention anything..

    • Hi Catarina!

      There is no such thing as stupid questions πŸ™‚ You can actually fit the mini snicker whole in the cookie. It worked best to make the cookie into a ball then use the palm of your hand to cup the ball and insert the snicker and then shape it and cover the bottom. I hope this helps. They are really wonderful…enjoy! πŸ™‚

  4. These look amazing! I can definitely see why they get requested!
