Food Crush: Snickers Cookies (revamped)

Watch me make this recipe live! http://l.nom.com/UlDk/QW61u5W8Gw


This recipe is an oldie but a goodie! If you’ve been following my blog for a while you probably saw the Snickers Cookie recipe I posted last year. I’m sure I’m not the only person that looks a dish and thinks “this could be better” well that’s literally the thought process I had last week when I decided to revamp this recipe. My first thought was “How?” I figured there had to be something I could do to take this cookie to the next level so I decided to add more caramel and peanuts to add to the already delicious flavor of the Snickers. I stumbled across the caramel baking chips one day while browsing through the baking isle and knew I had to try them. I think they are absolutely amazing and can be used in a variety of ways.

Now I don’t know about you but with the summer season winding down I am definitely getting into the baking mood. Something about the fall season makes me feel warm and cozy…..it’s a season where your home should always have the scent of fresh baked goods. I grew up in a home where cooking from scratch was taught at an early age; so being in the kitchen feels great and really helps me clear my head. One of the things I decided to do differently with this recipe is add less flour and lower the cooking temperature. I wanted a chewier cookie instead of a cakey one and I felt this was the best way to do it. I also cooked a couple batches differently (one chilled and one room temperature) the main difference was how big the cookie spread during the cooking process. If you like a thicker more compact cookie you could chill the dough for 30 before baking.

I must warn you that these cookies WON’T last long! The cookies were gone by the next day and I made about 23! I was pleased that everyone enjoyed them as much as they did. I can confidently say that my revamped Snickers Cookies are definitely a success and that if you try them you won’t be disappointed.
