Must-Make, Irresistible Snickers Cookies
These cookies are a must-make recipe for two reasons: one, they’re incredibly delicious and two, they’re incredibly easy and fast to whip up. Plus, who doesn’t love a cookie filled with peanut butter, chocolate and caramel?! I’m not sure I can think of anything better.
These cookies were created as a result of pulling all the baking chips and treats from my pantry to see what kind of cookies I could whip up as fast as possible. When those cookie cravings hit, it’s hard to ignore them!
The ingredients for these Snickers Cookies are pretty basic.
- Peanut butter
- Baking soda
- Peanut butter chips
- Chocolate chips
- Brown sugar
How to Make Snickers Cookies
I love how easy cookies are to make, and how fast they can be made and baked! So when a sweet tooth hits, an easy cookie recipe is usually my go-to when I’m in a pinch. You may recognize this recipe from my Peanut Butter Cookies. The base is soft and chewy and the flavor is just one of the best! I switched up the chips and added peanuts, chocolate chips, and Snickers to this cookie. I love how versatile this dough is!
Steps for making these cookies:
- First, whisk together the dry ingredients and set them aside.
- Next, cream the butter (use cold butter) peanut butter and brown sugar together until light and creamy, about two minutes on medium speed.
- Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- With the mixer on low, gradually add in all of the dry ingredients. Mix on low just until no streaks of flour remain. Don’t over mix the dough.
- Stir in all the chips, peanuts, and Snickers.
- Form all of the dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie.
- Place the dough balls on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Make sure you leave about 1 to 2 inches between each cookie so they don’t bake into each other.
- Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE. You want to take the cookies out of the oven when they are set around the edges, but still very soft in the middle. The cookies will set up after they are out of the oven.
- Let the Snickers Cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 to 10 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.

Must-Make Snickers Cookies
Soft and chewy cookies filled with peanut butter, peanuts, chocolate chips and Snickers
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 25 mins
- 1/2 cup (113 g) unsalted butter cold and cut into cubes
- 3/4 cup (187.5 g) creamy peanut butter I use Skippy
- 1 1/4 cup (275 g) light brown sugar packed
- 3 tablespoons (45 g) milk
- 1 tablespoon (13 g) pure vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cup (225 g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon (4 g) baking soda
- 1 teaspoon (5.6 g) salt
- 1/2 cup Reese's brand peanut butter chips
- 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped Snickers
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until well blended, about one minute.
- Add the egg and beat until just combined.
- Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed until just combined.
- Stir in the peanut butter chips, peanuts, chocolate chips, and Snickers.
- Using a cookie scoop (mine is about 2 tablespoons), drop cookie dough on lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Do not flatten these cookies like most peanut butter cookies call for.
- Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until slightly golden brown on top. Do not over bake. In fact, I like these underdone just a little. Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes before eating.
- Makes about 14 large cookies.
I was very excited to try this recipe, of course you can never make them look as pretty as the pictures. Everything was easy to follow and they tasted delicious. My only negative was that they didn’t flatten out in the oven. I ended up rolling them into balls and then pressing them down to a desired flat before baking. Otherwise they were great!
These taste just like a Snickers bar! I yielded a few more cookies than the 14-extra bonus for me yay! 🙂 I cooked mine 9 mins and came out perfectly. Do not over bake! Definitely a keeper recipe!
