  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter , softened
  • ¾ cup (200g) peanut butter (only use no-stir)
  • ¾ cup (150g) packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups (186g) all-purpose flour
  • About 22 Snickers Minis (unwrapped)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment or silpat baking mats.
  • Cream butter, peanut butter, and both sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add egg, vanilla, milk, and salt and baking soda. Mix until combined. Slowly add flour and mix until dough comes together.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough. Press each one flat in the palm of your hand, place a Snickers Mini in the center and wrap the dough around it, rolling to form a ball. Place on cookie sheet 2” apart. Use a fork to make a small criss-cross pattern on the top. They won’t flatten because of the Snickers, but they’ll have the pattern.
  • Bake for 13-16 minutes, until they just begin to brown. Cool completely and remove from cookie sheets.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. They can be frozen in sealable containers or ziploc bags between layers of paper towels for up to one month.


  • I love Skippy Naturals, so that’s the peanut butter I use to make all my cookies. That and Jif Naturals is a more natural peanut butter but it's no-stir. You can use classic as well, or chunky.
  • Make sure your Mini Snickers are completely enclosed in your cookie dough ball. Otherwise, if there are any cracks in the candy, the caramel can leak out. That’s also why you should remove your Snickers cookies from the oven a little earlier to be baked a bit underdone. The longer you bake them, the more chance that the Snickers will spill out.
  • Let’s talk candy sizes. Snickers have several sizes: full candy bars, fun-sized, mini, and bites. I used the mini candy bars for these cookies: they’re smaller than a fun size and they are square in shape, and come individually wrapped. You can use Snickers Fun Size and cut them in half, or regular size Snickers bars and cut them into small bites.
  • Store your peanut butter cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Snickers cookies can be frozen in sealable containers or Ziploc bags between layers of paper towels for up to one month.
