So around 4pm yesterday, my husband popped some bread in his mouth and said- “HUH! This is the first thing I’ve had to eat all day!”
…..IIIII’m sorry… you are JUST realizing this?! You went all day without eating and did not NOTICE?! Come on!
First of all, it would take a SERIOUS life-altering event for me to go all day without eating without knowing it. I am extremely aware about food… all day long. I can’t go longer than 3 hours without eating- and once I’ve hit that 3rd hour… best to keep your distance. Because this, is what hungry Steph looks like:
(Do you know that I was walking around Punta Cana for half a day looking like this without my husband telling me!?!?)
My makeup smeared in the pool and he let me TALK to people.. lots of people… while looking like this. Not cool, Mark face!
But really-that’s what hungry Steph looks like. It’s scary for everyone. After a snack though? Totally different story. Suddenly the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, everyone looks good, jokes are funny again…
…muuuuch better. So these SNICKERS® cookies are a great way to handle hunger. They’re packed with peanut butter, chocolate, and smothered with little bites of SNICKERS® chocolate bars. (I loaded mine up with several of their varieties- Almond, Peanut Butter Squares, and traditional!)
So honestly- who are you when you’re hungry? Are you as scary as I am?
I’m very curious to know if anyone else has a 3 hour eating window like me, or if not- what’s yours? Maybe you’re like my crazy hubby and you don’t have a one?!
LOOK at that gooey deliciousness… yup, these will solve any bad mood/hunger issues…..I stocked up on my SNICKERS® varieties at Family Dollar 😉
Okay, I can no longer stare at pictures of these cookies… I’m dying…
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 and ¼ cups peanut butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 2 and ½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup peanut butter chips
- 1.5 cups chopped Snickers candy
- In large bowl, beat granulated sugar and brown sugar with butter and peanut butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Tip Brown sugar should be patted down when baking, eliminating air in the measuring cup.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Then add to dough and mix thoroughly.
- Cover dough and chill for at least 30 minutes. Tip When you add flour, don't dip the measuring cup into the flour. This packs it in and you end up with a lot more than called for. Instead, spoon the flour into the measuring cup, and don't pat it down.
- Spoon out cookie dough using a tablespoon and roll into a ball. Build the ball up high so that it has room to melt in the oven without getting too flat.
- Place the chocolate chips and Snickers pieces onto a plate and dunk the top of the cookie dough balls into it. Place back in the fridge to cool, 30 minutes or more. (Overnight is fine too)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place dough on a baking sheet 3 inches apart, and bake them for about 15 minutes until light golden brown. Tip Keep cookie dough cool (in the fridge) in between batches. If you reuse baking pans, make sure those cool down first as well.
- Cool 10 minutes, then remove with a spatula onto a serving plate and go ahead, have a cookie! (or two) 🙂
You can also make the entire batch ahead of time, freeze them, and bake them when you're ready to serve!
