Peanut Butter & Snickers {Cookies!}

Lately, my life seems to revolving around lists. . . I have lists of house cleaning goals, project goals, daily goals, dinners, grocery, and now the MOPS appreciation dessert to-do list. But despite ALL that I need to be working on, Ethan and I took some time to make some much needed homemade cookies. . . and let me just say. . . these cookies ROCK!!!! Ethan and I both had a hard time saving any for daddy, today and usually Ethan just helps and just wants to eat the chocolate chips. . . Not this time! Even Jon is super excited to try these out (we'll see if there's any left before he gets home!).

Last week, Michelle - the Brown Eyed Baker posted this recipe and I knew I had to make them. . . Soon! Doesn't the combination of Peanut Butter, chocolate, caramel, and nougat just sound great together? (I promise you. . . it's amazing!). Thankfully, I baked up 16 nice round cookies and threw the rest of the dough in a freezer bag, labeled it, and threw it in the freezer where it would be safe. . . for now.
Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies
adapted from

1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup chopped Snickers Bars (I used 4 of the big ones)
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet and just through a few handfuls in.

:: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line with parchment paper or your favorite Silpat.

:: Whisk together your dry ingredients and set aside.

:: Cream together butter and peanut butter until nice and fluffy. Add both sugars and beat until smooth. Then add the egg, milk, and vanilla mixing after each addition.

:: Add the flour mixture and beat until you no longer see the flour. Stir in chopped snickers and chocolate chips.

:: Use your cookie scoop and scoop out nicely round balls of dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes before putting on a rack to finish cooling.
Don't these cookies look amazing? These were so good, I called my sister and told her to make them. . . and she just happened to have a box of Snickers (yes, I said box. . . as in the kind you buy at Sams Club or Costco) laying around and she had some yummy peanut butter.

Go ahead. . . try not to make them. . . they are THAT good!
