Snickers and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Snickers and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I realized the other day that I haven’t baked anything in weeks. That same day, my husband looked at me with a pouty face and asked, “Will you please bake something?” I knew right then and there that I had to get my butt into the kitchen and reconnect with my measuring cups, mixer and mixing bowls.

I perused my cabinets and freezer (I keep many of my baking goodies in the freezer) and discovered that I had all of the right ingredients to bake my favorite cookie recipe. What I love most about cookies is that if you have a solid cookie recipe, you can use it as a base and fold in your favorite goodies like nuts and candies right at the end of the prep process.

Since I had some chocolate chips on hand and a Snickers bar in my freezer, I decided to combine the two and bake these Snickers and Chocolate Chip Cookies. If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I always have a Snickers bar nearby. I’m just like my Dad…if ever we’re feeling weak or need a little pick me up, we always turn to the trusty Snickers bar to help us get out of the funk. The same goes for these cookies…I should carry a bag of these cookies around at all times. They’re definitely good for a little pick me up!
