I made these for a road trip. They have a crispy exterior texture and a soft chewy interior texture. I like the batch size. I did omit the cinnamon, I really didn't see how it would pair with the snickers for our taste palate. The snicker pieces also added a bonus texture. The only downside, on some of the cookies the Caramel did melt out of the cookie which did not appeal visually well but those were just my taste tester cookies.

I only got 2 dozen cookies out of this recipe. It was quite tasty , but would caution to leave baked cookies on sheet a few minutes before removing to cool as they break quite easily otherwise.

The author of this recipe is a genius! I mean what kind of crazy person doesn't like snickers?! And adding it to cookies! Heaven! Super easy to make too.
