Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies


1/2 c. unsalted butter, room temp.
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
25-30 mini Snickers, unwrapped
1/3 c. sugar, for rolling
1/2 c. (heaping) milk chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. shortening, opt.

Cream together butter, brown sugar and sugar until very light and fluffy. Add the peanut butter, then the egg and the vanilla. Beat until combined. Slowly add the baking soda, salt and flour. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes (or overnight).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop out about 1 1/2 Tablespoons of dough and flatten. Place one mini Snickers in the center and form dough around the Snickers. Roll into a ball and roll in sugar. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat. Bake for 9-10 minutes, no longer. Allow to cool. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir until smooth and using a fork, drizzle chocolate over cooled cookies. Allow to harden and serve. Yield: 25-30 cookies.
