Snickers Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dang you, Kohl’s for always sending me good deals!

Do you get the ads in the mail for Kohl’s?  You peel back the sticker and either get 15, 20, or 30% off.  I’m really good at ignoring the 15 & 20% coupons.  But 30% off…and go early this weekend to get Early Bird specials…and things are already on sale…and I get $10 Kohl’s cash for $50 spent.  Oh, the temptation!!

I got my KitchenAid mixer earlier this year at Kohl’s for such a deal this way!

I’m going to try to resist you this weekend, my dear friend, Kohl’s.  But don’t be surprised if you see me there.

Snickers Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from Love Veggies and Yoga

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
several fun-sized Snickers bars, diced

Yields about 27 cookies

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350.  Place parchment paper on your cookie sheets.  Set aside.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda & salt and whisk.  Set bowl aside.

In your mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, light brown sugar and vanilla.  Mix until creamy.  Add one egg and beat well.  Add the second egg and beat well.

Slowly add your dry mixture to the wet and mix.

Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Refrigerate the cookie dough for 20 minutes.  (The refrigerated dough helps the dough not stick to your fingers when you’re working with the dough + Snickers.)

In the meantime, slice your Snickers bars.  I sliced a fun-sized bar down the middle.  Then I sliced the bars into 3rds lengthwise.  The number of Snickers pieces will depend on how big you make your cookies.  Just play it by ear!

Remove chocolate chip cookie dough from the refrigerator.  Use a cookie dough scoop and scoop out a generous portion.  Form dough into a ball.

Place a Snickers slice into the dough.  You can use 2 Snickers pieces if you want the cookie to be extra Snickers-y.  :)

Place another rolled chocolate chip cookie dough ball on top of the Snicker.  Use your fingers to seam together the edges so that the Snickers is covered.

Bake for 9-11 minutes on your prepared cookie sheets.

Cool cookies on cookie sheet for 2 minutes.  Then move cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are very delicious!  The next time, I would either use bigger Snickers pieces or smaller portions of cookie dough per cookie.  I would have like more of an impact with the Snickers, but they tasted great regardless!
