Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

So, before we get into today’s recipe, I wanted to ask you a few questions. I really like and respect all of your comments and opinions, so that is why I am coming to you! Plus, if something is on my mind, I usually just blurt it out on here anyways. So, without further ado, here is what I have been thinking!

{1} I recently compiled a month long dinner plan complete with new recipes and grocery lists for one of my good friends who lives a busy life with her husband in Chicago. After a few days, she called me and told me how awesome it was and how I should turn this into a business. The thing that holds me back is not knowing if there are other people out there who need this and who would be willing to pay for it, so: would you pay for something like this? Is this a good idea or not? Comment below to tell me what you think! Be honest! And, you won’t hurt my feelings!

{2} Also, someone on Facebook asked me if I sold my treats online. I don’t at the moment, but if there’s enough of a demand, I’d probably do it because I love to bake. Seriously. I do. So, are you into buying yummy treats online? Would you buy treats from me online? Let me know below! :) THANKS!

So, onto these cookies! I wasn’t originally planning on posting a cookie recipe today, but my nephew came by for a visit on Monday and talked me into making some sweet treats! I gave him a few options to choose from and after some brainstorming, these are the cookies we came up with. I took my chocolate cookie recipe, substituted half the butter for peanut butter and then stirred in some snickers bars at the end for an extra bonus! Man are these babies good! These cookies have just the right ratio of chocolate to peanut butter plus the little bits of caramel and peanuts from the snickers bars take these over the top. A perfect pick me up for a lazy afternoon!

My nephew likes to bake and make desserts like this with lots candies and other goodies. He actually was the fuel behind these Jumbo Peanut Butter Cup Cookies I posted a few months back! He is good at persuading me. Actually, it doesn’t take much convincing for me to bake cookies. So, be sure to pick up some snickers bars today because you are not going to want to miss out on making these! And make sure to grab some little ones to help you out too! It’s so much fun to be in the kitchen with some extra helping hands. Happy Wednesday!

    Hey! So, I love your site and your recipes always look YUM! Here are my thoughts about your questions:

    monthly recipe/grocery list: I think that’s a cool idea, but I know I get a couple foodie mags (Rachael Ray & Simple&Delicious) that do things like that on a weekly basis. So I prob wouldn’t pay extra to have someone else do it for me. I think one way that would make yours unique is if you made it specialized…as in “a month of meals for under $___” or any other # of diff things.

    & I think it’s an awesome idea for you to share your treats online!!! There are ppl who sell food on etsy! You could SO do it here – esp because everyone would know exactly what was going in the recipe (and all the preservatives that AREN’T). Go for it!

    & thanks again for the yummy inspiration! :)

    hey, they have a website online that people pay money for weekly menus/grocery lists for those meals. Its e-mealz.com My friend used to do it and said it was awesome. But i think that you could do pretty well with it with the people you know and people who follow your recipes already. I wouldn’t know how much you would charge but i would check out the site to see how they do it.

    Love your business ideas. I am all the time trying something new to work from home. My husband and I brainstorm a lot. It seems about 1 out of 1000 ideas work out, but I say go for it! You might check with the local ag dept. on food regulations. They are trying to pass laws in WY where you can sell items baked at home to individuals. I don’t know if those kinds of laws are in place everywhere. I really like the meal planning/grocery list idea I think that could be very useful to busy folks. Good Luck! Can’t wait to try your cookies!

    Hi Lauren,

    I’m curious but this blog/website you post recipes on is already a business right?

    It seems like everyone I know involved in baking goodies from home is extremely successful, so if you have requests, I say go for it!

    I do like the meal plan idea as well- I dont know anyone who has paid for such a thing. But it does not hurt to put the word out there and see who bites. You might always wonder if you dont give it a shot.

    I tried making these for some friends, I copied the recipie as close as possible yet they tasted really bland and horrible.
    They looked nice though.

    I mean the mixture before I cooked it was really nice and I hoped the finished biscuit would be just as nice. but it seemed to lose all it’s flavour.
