Snickers Brownie Cookies
If you’re an ooey, gooey, caramel-y, decadently chocolate lover… these are the cookies for you!
There’s really nothing secret or tricky about these guys. It’s a brownie in cookie form, stuffed with Snickers bites. I mean… it’s about as no-brainer as a cookie gets.
Instead of chopping up Snickers bars, I used the new Snickers bites (you can find them in bags in the candy aisle) and just threw them in whole. That way there’s a little less caramel spillage (which can sometimes lead to burning depending on your oven), but as you can see a little caramel still manages to escape here and there.
And that’s really okay…. maybe even downright awesome.
I did make sure to reserve a few from the bag to chop up and press into the tops of the cookies. I love doing this, because it adds an extra layer of ooey gooey decadence, makes the cookie look a little prettier, and it tips people off as to what’s inside the cookie (like a label, but yummier 🙂 .
I skipped over chill time and just went straight to bakin’ after mixin’. You can see in the photos here that they spread a bit, which I didn’t mind at all. But if you’d like a thicker cookie with less spreading, simply cover the dough and chill for an hour before baking.
- 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil*
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp. hot water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 Snickers bites or chopped Snickers bars
- Using a large bowl and a stand or hand mixer, beat the olive oil and sugar until well mixed. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating in between the addition of each egg. The mixture should become creamy as the eggs are added.
- Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water, set aside.
- Add the cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Beat until dough** forms.
- Mix in the dissolved baking soda.
- Mix in the chocolate chips and snickers bites.
- Chill for 1 hour if desired. Scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto a parchment or silicon lined baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, until the edges are set.
- Let cool completely on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack.
*I haven't had great results substituting butter, so I don't recommend it.
**Dough will be similar to a very thick brownie batter.
Don’t miss a bite!
