snicker cookie bars recipeGetting these posted on Thursday for some reason always sneaks up on me.  At least I am posting these on the right day.  Little victories right?  I made these Snickers Cookie Bars for my son’s reading celebration at school tomorrow.  They had to read 200 minutes during the quarter to be able to get a celebration.  If you have ever met my child, then you know that this was an accomplishment.  I love to read more than anything.  If you told me that I needed to go into my quiet room, read for a bit, and then get a party at the end, I would be all over it.  In fact, I do not even need a party.  I think that I was there at “quiet room”.  I told Will that if he finished his reading log (believe me, we JUST made it), that I would bake a special treat for him and his class.

These Snickers Cookie Bars are so easy to make, even easier than a cookie.  I love cookies, but since we moved from our house and my glorious double ovens, baking cookies seems like a chore.  These took about 10 minutes to get from ingredients to pan.  They also cut like a dream.  Nice edges.  I know that doesn’t matter to a lot of people, but when you are taking pictures of food, it is rather handy.  Also, use whatever kind of candy bar you would like.  Butterfinger, Babe Ruth, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.  All would be delicious.

    With all those “fun size” Halloween candies on sale, these are a no brainer this week. Although my husband always says that if the candy were REALLY fun, they’d be twice the size, not half . . . :)

    I just made these and they came out very dry- what could I have done wrong? I followed all the steps exactly. Thanks

      I am not really sure, I wish that I could be more helpful.

      I have made these twice now, once as cookie bars, and once as cookies. Both times they had a dry texture, crumbled very easily, and didn’t have a lot of depth. Not to say that the men they were baked for didn’t gobble them up happily and ask for more, but I think that’s just the way this recipe is. If you want moist chewy cookies/cookie bars, you should definitely look for a different recipe that clearly states that they have those characteristics. These are simple and easy, and quick if you are in a bind and need something fast! I’d love to see an amped up version of this recipe someday, and I may play around with it myself, but either way, it has saved me twice when I needed something quick for a chocolate/candy lover.
