Snickers Cookies

Do you ever stop and think about how recipes circulate? A little weird I know, but these cookies made me think about it. In some weird way recipes are almost like the game of telephone, just a perhaps more grown up version. The biggest difference is that I normally don’t intentionally screw up a recipe and pass it along like I did when I used to play telephone…real mature I know.  Anyways, my friend Heather has been making these cookies for quite some time, I hadn’t ever tried one, but I heard they were amazing. When I texted her to get the recipe she said the recipe actually belonged to our friend Tammy. Where ever they came from, they are yummy. Here is the recipe…I will just pass it along with just one little addition.
Snickers Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen cookies…if you don’t eat too many Snickers
1 c peanut butter
1 c butter
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
3 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 package fun size or mini snickers
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Cream together peanut butter, butter, sugars and eggs. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix thoroughly. Chill about one hour. Unwrap snickers; cut fun size into three pieces or use bite size without cutting. (I used bite size.) Remove dough from refrigerator and wrap chilled dough around snickers pieces. Place sugar in shallow bowl and roll dough ball in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and flatten cookies with bottom of a glass. Cool on wire wrack.
Over low heat melt chocolate and peanut butter. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Once chocolate has set, store or enjoy.
