Snickers Cookies

SnickersCookies2RS

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup quality semisweet chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 8-ounce bag Snickers Bites

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

1. In bowl of electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until well blended and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mix in vanilla and beat until well incorporated.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Gradually add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Add in chocolate chips and Snickers Bites. Turn mixer speed to medium-high and mix dough for about 30 seconds. This will break apart the Snickers Bites and incorporate the pieces into the dough. If you are not working in a stand mixer, you will need to roughly chop the Snickers Bites before mixing them into the dough.

3. Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop two mounds of dough per cookie (3 tablespoons total) and roll dough into balls.

4. Place each dough ball onto the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 14-18 minutes or until very lightly browned, taking care not to overbake. I baked mine for 16 minutes, which seemed to be perfect in my oven.

5. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes:

– I chose to make large Snickers Cookies, if you make smaller cookies, you will need to reduce the baking time to 10-12 minutes.

– Snickers Cookies are best served the day they are made; however, the cooled cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days.

2. Evenly divide the crumbs between your individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Transfer whipped cream to a small bowl and place it into the refrigerator while you prepare the rest of the filling.
3. Place cream cheese and peanut butter the mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth. Reduce speed to low and gradually add in confectioners’ sugar until well combined. Add in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and beat on medium speed until mixture is creamy and smooth. Take care to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
4. Stir in 1/3 of the whipped cream into the filling mixture. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the remaining whipped cream until well blended until no streaks remain.
3. Evenly pipe or spoon the filling into individual serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. If desired, garnish with whipped cream and chocolate curls.

Notes:

  • The number of pies you get from this recipe will depend on the size of your individual serving dishes.

2. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large bowl microwave-safe bowl at medium (50% power) for 3-4 minutes or until butter is melted.

3. Stir until chocolate is melted. Whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Gradually add in flour; stir until just combined.

5. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely. Just before serving, cut brownies and prepare the caramel sauce.

6. To make the caramel, place the caramels and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments until the caramels begin to melt; stir frequently. Continue warming and stirring the caramels until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. Drizzle over each brownie and serve immediately.

Notes:

– The brownies are very fudgy, make sure you allow them to cool completely before cutting into them.
– Take these brownies to another level by serving them topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
