Snickers Cookie Bars

snicker cookie bars recipe

Snickers Cookie Bars – a buttery and gooey cookie bar loaded with chopped up Snickers bars. These are perfect for when you want cookies right now.

Getting 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.
