what you need
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 bags assorted miniature candies (Snickers work the best)
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
  • Baking chocolate (optional)
make it
1. Beat together butter, peanut butter and sugars with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until light and fluffy. Slowly add the eggs and vanilla, beating until well mixed. Then mix in the flour, baking soda and salt.

2. Cover and chill dough in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 325°F. Remove dough from refrigerator. Divide dough into 1-tablespoon pieces and flatten each dough piece. Unwrap enough candies for the amount of dough pieces and then place a candy in the center of each piece of dough. Form dough into a ball around each candy.

4. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. If desired, sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar. (Optional: Melt baking chocolate and drizzle over the tops of the baked cookies.)
