Santa's Snickers Surprises

Anna J.

2 sticks butter
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 c. light brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
13 oz. package Snickers miniatures
Dove milk chocolate
powdered sugar

Combine butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt to form dough. Cover and chill for 2-3 hours.

Unwrap Snickers. Divide chilled dough into 48 equal pieces. Take one piece, flatten it in the hand, and place a Snickers in the middle of it. Roll the dough into a ball around the Snickers and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. (Do not cool on paper towels.)

Melt the Dove milk chocolate. Microwave about 90 seconds and stir until smooth.

Use a spoon to drizzle melted milk chocolate in decorative stripes across tops of cooled cookies. (Dip spoon in chocolate and wiggle hand back and forth over cookies - looks pretty.) Finish with a fine dusting of powdered sugar over the cookies. Festive-looking and scrumptious! Makes 4 dozen.
