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. That doesn’t seem like such a bad problem since candy is always great, but we had A LOT. We enjoyed some 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 fun size Snickers from our left over Halloween Candy, and got to work. I 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 combination of chocolate, peanuts, and caramel is undeniably addicting. A great balance of chocolate with crunchy peanuts and creamy caramel. Plus, there is that delightful ying/yang combination of salty and sweet.
The caramel can spill out of these Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies a bit while baking so you might not get the prettiest cookies. However, I have never personally minded since they were so dang good. Besides just being a great chocolate chip cookie, 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. A cookie delivery right to hospital! They certainly beat hospital sweets. 🙂
