Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies


Is there a holiday to celebrate Snickers yet or what? Confession, I’m a Snickers hoarder. I had two boxes in my freezer and they slowly dwindled away to nothing – especially once my husband and kids found out they were in there. I’m going to need to replenish that. I go through different phases of favorite latest candy bar cravings but Snickers is most frequently in the lead which is why it was an absolute must that I added some to the best cookies ever – the classic chocolate chip cookie. Who knows why I haven’t made these before, but it’s probably a dangerous thing now that I have. Sometimes things this good might be better off ¬†unknown :). A chewy, caramely, nougat and peanut studded cookie that is loaded with chocolate is has got to be good right? Indeed it does. These are amazing – so get going and make a batch asap. Enjoy!

Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: About 30 cookies


  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup salted butter , at room temperature*
  • 1 1/4 cups light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 - 8 oz Snickers candy bars , chopped (about 1 1/2 - 2 cups)**
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped , unsalted or lightly salted peanuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt for 30 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time mixing until combined after each addition. Blend in vanilla. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Add in chopped Snickers, chocolate chips and peanuts and blend on low speed just until mixed in.
  2. Shape dough into balls about 3 Tbsp each (45 g) and place on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet spacing at least 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven 10 - 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool several minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
  3. *Look for a salted butter containing 100 mg or less of sodium per serving (listed on nutrition facts). If you have a butter that has more than 100 mg just reduce the amount of salt slightly.
  4. ** I diced each of the Snickers bites into quarters. I love that I didn't have to unwrap lots of minis but if you cant find the bites the minis would work fine.

  • Lexie: These look great!!! If I use unsalted butter, do I need to add more salt?

    Lexie July 16, 2013 at 10:18am Reply

    • Jaclyn: It’s personal preference really, personally I would add more salt if using unsalted butter (an additional 1/2 tsp for this recipe). There’s a lot of sugars in these cookies between the batter and snickers so I liked a good balance of salty too. July 17, 2013 at 9:48pm Reply

  • Kayle (The Cooking Actress): Snickers and chocolate chip cookies, a match made in yummy, yummy food heaven! July 16, 2013 at 12:43pm Reply

  • sherry: Can I make these into bars instead? If so how long do you think they should cook? July 28, 2013 at 1:56pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yeah you probably could I just don’t know how long to cook them for. My guess would be around 20 minutes in a cookie sheet. July 28, 2013 at 4:19pm Reply

  • J: I want to make these but with cocoa powder to make a chocolate cookie. How much cocoa powder do you think I need? September 19, 2015 at 9:24am Reply

  • Heather: Can I make the dough at night and put it in the fridge and make the cookies the next day? Will it still be good? July 19, 2016 at 8:30am Reply

    • Jaclyn: That should be fine. I would probably reduce the flour by 1/4 cup if the dough is chilling that long – just so the cookies will still spread. July 20, 2016 at 1:53pm Reply
