Snickers Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
The ultimate soft baked, super chewy cookie loaded with hearty oats and Snickers candy bars!
I get asked this question all the time: what’s your favorite recipe??
And, honestly, I have a few. Definitely my mom’s frosted brownies. And this peanut butter apple dip is a daily snack in our house. M&M Brownie cookies, obviously. And omg these Baked Chocolate Donuts. I love them all, and any one of them is worthy of being my most top-notch favorite recipe.
But, as my frequent readers know, my heart will always and forever belong to chocolate chip cookies. As of now, I have 21 chocolate chip cookie recipes on my site (not including all the variations of those recipes). Some of my favorites have included these DoubleTree Hotel Cookies, AllRecipes.com #1 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe, and these King Arthur Chocolate Chip Cookies.
One of my very, very favorite recipes I’ve found as I’ve dug around for new chocolate chip cookie recipes has been this King Arthur Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I have used it over and over and over again (here with M&MS and here with Reese’s Pieces), and it is consistently phenomenal.
And the recipe couldn’t be more straightforward.
An egg and an egg yolk (for extra thick and chewy cookies!).
Oatmeal and flour.
Aside from a few littles teaspoons of this and that, that’s really all there is to the recipe!
Oh, and today, Snickers OF COURSE!
I couldn’t resist taking my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe and adding my current candy bar crush to it.
You know the best part about adding Snickers to cookies? The ooey, gooey melted caramel and nougat. It’s THEE best, and I don’t know why we bother eating cookies any other way.
Take it from me: happy people eat warm cookies stuffed with Snickers.
So go out there and make some people happy!
