Snickerdoodle cookies have been a life time favorite, but I wanted to try taking them up a notch by adding snickers candy bars into the mix. I found Snickers Bites at the store and thought they would be the easiest to chop up and add to the cookie batter. Plus, it was easy to sneak a bite or two of chocolate while baking. These little bites are perfect for snacking and for baking and, since it’s football season, these cookies are a perfect game day treat. The Snickerdoodle Snickers Cookies turned out perfect and might just be our new favorite.

Anywho, back to the cookies. My grandma made snickerdoodle cookies, my mom made them, and I hope that my kids will carry on the tradition and make them. They might even add my little Snickers Bites twist on this delicious treat.
I had my family and a friend give these cookies a taste test and they all gave them two thumbs up. It’s nice to know that my Snickers Bites addition was a tasty improvement to my favorite cookies.
Before I share the recipe I want to share some tips to make sure you have a great cookie baking experience.
1. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper. Trust me, it makes baking and clean up a breeze.
2. Gather all your ingredients, measuring cups, bowls, etc, before you start mixing.
3. Wear an apron. It will help keep excess flour off your clothes.
4. Have a dish towel nearby for easy clean up
5. Pre heat your oven. Lots of people skip this step, but your cookies/baked goods will come up much better in a preheated oven.
