Helpful tips
  • I like using the bite-sized Snickers candies as there is less of a risk of my eating a whole candy bar before I actually bake the cookies, but full-size bars are fine, too.
  • Take the butter out of the refrigerator at least a half hour before starting the recipe and let it soften in the stand mixer, so you're not handling it multiple times. Unwrap the sticks into the mixing bowl and help the softening along by cutting them into several chunks.
  • These cookies freeze well. Place in an air tight container or gallon zip lock bag and lay flat in the freezer until they freeze, after which you can stack them with other items.
  • I use a medium cookie scoop but you can use a small scoop or even roll the dough between your palms to shape your cookies.
  • Only place 12 dough balls on the cookie sheet to let the cookies have room between each other to spread.
  • Everyone's oven is different. My cookies took 12 minutes to bake, so I suggest you look at the cookies after 10 minutes just to see how much time you need to get the perfectly baked cookie. They should be lightly browned around the edges.
