I know I say this a lot, but these Chocolate Snickers Cookies really are one of my all time favourites and after just one bite, you will easily see why!
They Snickers Cookies are based on another one of my favourite biscuit recipes, these Triple Chocolate Cookies but instead of adding chocolate pieces and chocolate chips to the mixture, I added Snickers – perfect right?!
I had a little stockpile of Snickers bars in the pantry thanks to spotting them on sale for $1 each at our local supermarket. The funny thing is even though I LOVE Snickers, I rarely eat a bar by itself, I always use them in my baking instead – crazy right?
You will find a delicious piece of Snickers bar in each and every mouthful of these Chocolate Snickers Cookies and I promise you will really find it hard to stop yourself from eating more than one!
If Snickers aren’t your thing (don’t worry, I won’t hold it against you!) you can easily substitute them for your favourite chocolate bar.
