Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

Candy and cookies are pretty cool. But candy inside cookies are ever better.

Throughout my pregnancy I had a wicked sweet tooth, which is so unlike me. Well, when Halloween came around I went all out and bought tons of candy. I went totally overboard since we don’t get that many trick-or-treaters and as a result had a lot of leftover candy. I had no problem with this but I didn’t feel like just snacking on it. I had an itch to do something with the big bowl of candy staring at me.

So I dug into the pile of the Snickers and decided to mix them into a batch of chocolate chip cookies. You know, just to take cookies to the next level. THE NEXT LEVEL.

The caramel can spill out of the cookie a bit while baking so you might not get the prettiest cookies but I personally didn’t mind since they were so dang good. They have a great chew to them, as well as the great flavors from chocolate, peanuts, and caramel.

I swear these cookies are addicting. They are so good that I had Price bring me some of these cookies to the hospital after I had Autumn. Definitely beats hospital sweets. 🙂
