Candy Bar Cookies – NaBloPoMo Day 17

This weekend went way too fast! The weekend in Des Moines was a blast. It is always so fun to get back to my old stompin’ grounds and catch up with old friends!

When I got home today, I did wanted to do some baking so I made one of my all time favorite cookie recipes. One of my best friends from high school used to make them and bring them to school all the time, and people would basically fight over these things. And once I made them for my husband to take to work, and people were calling them “crack cookies.” They couldn’t get enough, so it’s safe to say you don’t have to be from Traer to know they are amazing. When I posted a picture on Facebook of the Candy Bar Cookies–I had a couple requests to share the recipe. So here it is!

Candy Bar Cookies – The Kupka Family Recipe

1 c. sugar

1 c. brown sugar

1 c. oleo (margarine)

1 c. peanut butter (I use creamy)

2 tsp.vanilla

2 eggs

3 c. flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 bag of miniature candy bars (I used Snickers, but Milky Way bars are great in there, too.)

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream together sugars and margarine. Add peanut butter and mix well. Mix in vanilla and eggs. Sift and add dry ingredients. Take 1/8 cup of dough and wrap around 1 unwrapped candy bar. Flatten it out a little so it is not still in a ball. {It won’t flatten very much on it’s own during baking.}  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. They should be slightly under-baked. Keep on the cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes before removing. Makes about 40 cookies.


The recipe makes a lot of cookies! But they won’t last long!


All the yummy goodness of the melty candy bar in the middle and peanut butter on the outside!
