Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Final 3 Crack out your smelling salts….this dessert is a doozie! Yes, you read that title correctly!! Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies….A mini snickers bar stuffed inside peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough that happens to be chock full of chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips and rice krispies. Have you fainted yet?

I’m not gonna lie, these are pretty amazing and ridiculous. Every bite is has different tastes and the texture differences between the oats, rice krispies and melted snickers bar seriously drove me crazy. After I tore one of these warm little fat babies open, I was a goner. I think I gasped. LITERALLY gasped, people!!  There are no words to describe the beauty that is this cookie.  I then proceeded to eat an unidentified number of cookies. I would tell you the number, but I just don’t remember….so that equates to…..basically a lot! 

So, besides the smelling salts, have your gym membership cards handy too.

You’re welcome.

Cookies 1 For these cookies, start by mixing some peanut butter, coconut oil, brown sugar and granulated sugar together in a bowl. If you don’t have coconut oil, softened butter works just fine too! :)

Cookies 2 To that mixture, add in an egg

Cookies 3 and some vanilla bean paste. I ran out of my vanilla extract but happened to have this on hand. Totally weird, right? Anyways, for all you normal folk, use plain vanilla. The increments for both are on the printable recipe.

cookies 5 So you’re going to turn your mixer up and whip this mixture so it gets light and fluffy and turns a light coffee color.

Cookies ingredients 1 Now comes all the dry ingredients….lots of pantry items here! Stir these in really slow and after they’re incorporated stop mixing.

Cookie Ingredients 2 Ok, so now you can rummage through your pantries and see what you can find. I always seem to have 17 random 1/4 full bags of chips hanging around, so I tossed a bunch in to clean out my cupboard. Stir these in by hand and you’re ready to go.

cookies 6 Now to assemble these ama-za-za-zing cookies, scoop about 8 cookies out with a small scoop.

cookies 7 Press the dough down to flatten.

cookies 12 Now grab those leftover snickers you forgot about from valentine’s day and unwrap. A great job for small hands!

cookies 8 Place one of these little guys on each cookie dough landing pad…

cookies 9 and top it off with another scoop of dough.

cookies 10 Press this dough around the snickers to seal it in!

cookies 11 Voila! You’re stuffed cookies! These should be the size of golf balls or slightly larger, but not by much.

cookies 13 After 10 minutes or so in the oven, pull these cookies out of the oven and get your glass of milk ready.

Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Final 1 After 5 minutes of cooling, you can dig in!! Just looking at these, they look like a normal cookie, right?

Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Final 2 WRONG! Once you dig in, everyone will be surprised by what’s waiting for them!! Mmmm….

We ADORED these and they didn’t last long at all!! Find a cooking buddy and make these today!! :) Happy Wednesday!

Snickers Stuffed Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Yield: 1 1/2 dozen, approximately


1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil, or softened butter
6 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup baking chips {butterscotch, chocolate, white, etc.}
1/3 cup rice krispies cereal
18 snack size snickers candy bars, unwrapped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butters and sugars together. Stir in egg and vanilla bean paste and whip until light in color and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Slowly stir in baking soda, salt, flour and oats until just combined. Stir in remaining ingredients, excluding the snickers, by hand. Using a cookie scoop, create 8 cookie dough balls on your prepared baking sheet. Press dough down flat. Top with a mini snickers bar and place another scoop of cookie dough over top. Press the dough around the snickers bar to cover completely. Bake 9-11 minutes or until cookie starts to turn light golden brown on the bottom. Cool 3-5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Serve warm with milk! YUM!

    Umm, geesh. I actually AM ‘snickering’ right now. Could you load these with any more ridiculous deliciousness?? How could anyone say no to these? and then when they didn’t say no and ate one, how could they not pass out???

    Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau — March 1, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Diane — March 1, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Can’t wait to try these! Might have to make a double batch cuz I’m pretty sure I might have to “sample” quite a few of ’em. Depending on how many got baked after I “sampled” the dough….:-)
