We all know what it’s like when you suddenly need a cool idea for a special treat and don’t have much time to make it. This recipe uses an 18 ounce roll of refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough, 36 miniature Snickers bars, baking cups and a can of chocolate frosting.
Heat oven to 375. For each cookie cup wrap a heaping teaspoon of cookie dough around 1 candy bar, enclosing it almost completely and forming a ball. Place in a paper baking cup. Place cups on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Centers will sink slightly. Cool 1 minute and remove from cookie sheet, cool 15 minutes. Spoon chocolate frosting into pastry bag with a star tip and pipe frosting on top of each cup.
I didn’t get any where near 36 cups out of this recipe but, they were so good it didn’t matter. They were gone the minute they hit the table!!! Did you visit? Leave a comment!
