Colorful Candy Bar Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
No one will guess these sweet treats with the candy bar center start with store-bought dough. Roll them in colored sugar…or just dip the tops for even faster assembly. Instead of using miniature candy bars, slice regular size Snickers candy bars into 1-inch pieces for the centers. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2014

I have made these cookies for the holidays using red and green colored sugar, and they were a nice seasonal addition to the cookie tray. People like the surprise inside! I did not get quite as many cookies as the recipe indicated.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2013

These cookies are a hit with my family and friends, everyone requests them at Christmas! I have tried to make with milky way also, but they didn't turn out so well, so I stick to the snickers. Great recipe!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 17, 2013

I tried the with 1/2 of a mini mounds bar. They came out perfect. The ones I made with the snickers cracked and the caramel inside got hard. I only got 15 cookies out of 1/2 tube of dough.

MY REVIEW

To make the cookies round like in the picture, use only enough dough to barely cover the candy. Too much dough makes the cookies flat.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 4, 2013

Mine did not make as many as the recipe said it would, but they did come out okay. Some leaked, but husband said it was just the caramel from the candy and it was tasty! A little time consuming, but worth it. Son put his in the microwave on the second day for about 10 second and boy, that them even better!
