Snickers Surprise Cookies




Oh mylanta!  Not only do these cookies look fantastic, they taste divine!  A snickers bar tucked away all soft and melty-like in a warm, soft peanut butter shell drizzled with smooth and creamy milk chocolate.  Decadent and delicious!  Be sure to have a glass of milk in hand for these babies!

Snickers Surprise Cookies

Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 (13 oz.) packages Snickers miniatures
powdered sugar (for sprinkling)
melted chocolate (for drizzling)

Directions:
Combine the butter, peanut butter and sugars using a mixer on medium to low speed until ight and fluffy.  Slowly add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined.  Then mix in flour, salt, and baking soda.  Cover and chill dough for at least 30 minutes.  Unwrap all the Snickers minis.  Remove dough from fridge.  Divide the dough into tablespoon size pieces and flatten.  Place a Snickers in the center of each piece of dough. Form the dough into a ball around each Snickers.  Place onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Let cool on a rack.  Lightly sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar and drizzle melted chocolate over the top.  (For the melted chocolate, I combined about 4 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1 tsp. shortening.  Melted it in the microwave and put it in a plastic sandwich bag.  Then I cut off the corner and drizzled.)
