Snickers Cookies

These cookies were REALLY yummy...I served them at my Christmas piano recital and got a lot of comments about them! The only thing I would change would be to just melt some milk chocolate chips or a Hershey's bar or something and drizzle that. I wasn't too fond of the chocolate glaze. But you definitely need to try these!!

Snickers Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
60 miniature (bite size) Snickers candy bars (these are the smallest size ones – NOT the fun size)
chocolate glaze (see recipe below)

Preheat oven to 350 . Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and add to peanut butter mixture. Take 1 Tbsp. of dough and flatten into round shape in palm of hand. Place Snickers bar in center and fold dough around it. Roll in palms of your hand to form a smooth ball with the Snickers bar totally covered with the dough. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and place on a wire rack to cool. Drizzle top of cookies with chocolate glaze.

Chocolate Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
1 Tbsp. milk

Mix powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa and milk. Add additional as needed to thin mixture enough to drizzle from spoon.
