How Do I Make Snickers Cookies?

You’ll love how easy these chocolate-filled cookies are to bake. And since they’re packed with chocolate chips and Snickers candy bars, they’re also flavorful! To make your own Snickers cookies to snack on, follow these simple steps:

Step One: Combine the Dry Ingredients

Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk the ingredients until combined, then set the bowl aside while preparing the other cookie ingredients.

Step Two: Cream the Butter and sugar

Combine the unsalted butter with the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Beat the ingredients together until the mixture is light and creamy. Then, add the eggs to the butter mixture and beat until light and fluffy.

Step Three: Prepare the Cookie Dough

Next, add the dry ingredients slowly into the butter mixture and continue mixing until all the ingredients are well blended and a thick dough forms.

Step Four: Add the Chocolate

Add the mini chocolate chips and chopped Snickers bars to the cookie dough. Fold the candy into the dough until it’s well mixed.

Step Five: Bake the Cookies

Scoop out rounded tablespoons of the cookie dough and place the scoops on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cookies are a light golden brown.

Step Six: Allow the Cookies to Cool

After the cookies have finished baking, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

How Do You Store Snickers Cookies?

These Snickers chocolate chip cookies are such a delicious treat! That means you will want to keep them fresh for as long as possible. Make sure to allow the cookies to cool completely, then transfer them to an airtight container and keep them at room temperature in a cool, dry place for up to one week.

You can also store the cookies in the freezer if you want to keep them longer than one week. Arrange the cooled cookies on a baking sheet or plate and place the pan in the freezer for around two hours. Once the cookies are frozen solid, transfer them to a freezer bag or freezer-safe container. The cookies can be kept in the freezer for up to three months.

How Do I Keep My Snickers Cookies from Spreading?

These quick and easy cookies are perfect for a simple snack because the dough can be made and baked immediately. But sometimes, chocolate chip cookie dough spreads too much when it bakes, causing you to have thin, crunchy cookies.

If you prefer chewier cookies, chill the dough before baking. After preparing the cookie dough according to the recipe instructions, cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour. You can keep the cookie dough in the fridge overnight if needed.

After the dough has chilled, scoop it on the prepared baking sheet and bake according to the recipe instructions.

Why Are My Cookies Crispy?

Baking your cookies for too long will result in crispy, crunchy cookies. The key to getting the perfect consistency in your baked cookies is to remove them from the oven before they look done.

The cookies are finished baking when the edges are golden brown, but the centers are still slightly soft. After removing the pan from the oven, allow the cookies to rest on the hot baking sheet for five minutes to give the centers of the cookies time to finish baking. Then, you can transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

How Do I Keep the Snickers in My Cookies from Melting?

Since the Snickers candy bars inside these cookies are filled with gooey caramel and nougat, the filling inside the candy can melt and spread as the cookies bake. The key to keeping the caramel from melting and spreading is to keep the Snickers pieces from directly touching the pan.

As you place your cookie dough balls on the baking sheet, ensure no candy pieces are touching the pan on the bottom or edges of your cookie dough. This will prevent the caramel from spilling out on the pan while the cookies are baking.
