Snicker Surprise Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe next to a Snickers coupon. It is absolutely fabulous. The Snickers is hidden inside the cookie so it makes for a nice surprise when you bite in. This cookie works perfectly as part of a Xmas cookie platter. If you are a Snickers fan, you are in for a real treat.

Elmolvsu, I hope you try this recipe again. They went off the plate again. I drizzle chocolate on top then sprinkle powdered sugar. USE 1 CUP OF BUTTER instead of 1/2 cup. That will probably make the difference for your flour. I yield 41 cookies. I don't use a lot of dough around the snickers. I make a ball, flatten it on wax paper, then place the snickers on top and pull the dough up around it and pinch the top together. If you like a soft cookie, 12 minutes baking time would probably be sufficient. Let us know if you have a problem, because these are fabulous and we don't want you to miss out.
