Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

What can be better than a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie?  What about a mini snickers bar stuffed in it?  Yes!  Yes!  Yes!

These cookies are amazing.  Not for the light hearted for sure.  But made for a dreamy dessert coma.

These cookies only lasted for about 24 hours.

The husband approved this cookie for sure.  Of course we shared and I am happy to say they were a hit.  I can wait to see what other kind of stuffed cookie I can make.
