Candy Bar Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

Tags: , , , , , ,

Candy Bar Cookies?  Have I gone mad?  Well, no but was craving some chocolate….sorry for those of you who are so good and still dieting 🙂

I used the same technique I’ve been using with those giant Oreo Stuffed Cookies and am just loving it.  Ooey Gooey on the inside and perfectly buttery crisp on the outside, just how I like it!I would highly recommend that you use the exact cookie dough recipe I have written below.  It holds it’s shape perfectly for these giant cookies.  Grab some milk, endulge…..then go workout tomorrow.  Enjoy!!

I used 3 of my favorite snack size candy bars as pictured above.  Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers and Kit Kat.  I believe you could use any of your favorites here 🙂

First up, Reeses Peanut Butter Cup….my absolute favorite 🙂  Place a nice big scoop on top and…

…..a nice big scoop on the bottom 🙂

Use both hands to press and seal edges.  You’ll get this giant head sized cookie.

Do the same with your Snickers, one giant scoop on top, one on bottom…press and seal edges!

Same story for your Kit Kat Bar.  I shaped it a bit oval which worked great.

Ready for the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees F, 14-16 minutes!

Can you just die?!  Here’s the inside of the Snickers Cookie.

The inside of the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cookie, mmm!

…and the fabulous Kit Kat Bar Cookie.  Love every single one of these bad boys!


Candy Bar Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches


  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
  • 3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 10 oz bag chocolate chips
  • Variety of snack size Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers and Kit Kat


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until well combined.  Add eggs and vanilla until well combined.
  2. Place flour, baking soda and salt in large bowl; mix then slowly add to wet ingredients.  Add chocolate chips to combine.  Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of snack size candy bar.  Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of candy bar.  Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until candy bar is enclosed with dough.  Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking.  Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.  Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!

Makes about 24 LARGE Cookies

    I was telling my husband about this recipe and half way through the description he says, “Stop! You had me @ Fun Size!!!” Ha! Can’t wait to make these!

    The doctor told me this morning that I am 4cm dilated and fully effaced. If I start baking these cookies this afternoon can someone please please guarantee that I will still be around to enjoy them and they won’t be gobbled up by my family while I am in the hospital delivering this baby???

    These are fantastic. We always have leftover candy in our cupboard so it was great to clean it all out. I used KitKats, Recess and Milky ways. I will definitely be making these again.

    So.. found these stumbling and they made my mouth water – made em about 20 minutes later. I used reese’s pb cups, and an aero bar (didn’t have anything else). I made my cookies extra large – my batch made 12 (hehe)
    SUPER AWESOME!! I needed a glass of milk for dipping, and one more for afterwards. Thanks for sharing this great idea 🙂

    What a fun way to combine two delicious treats together! I think the kit kat cookie would just be divine! =)

    Amy says:

    I only got 12 cookies out of this dough. Did I make them too big?? Based on the size of the candy bars, I don’t think I could make them too much smaller. Any thoughts?

    Jangel says:

    I made these with little snack-sized Reese’s cups to make some smaller ones (I ended up with a little over 30 regular-sized cookies), and oh my god. My dad, my husband, and my little man were all over them. I only got a couple! Excellent recipe, will definitely make again!

    Journey says:

    Just made these! I cut the recipe in half because I didn’t want to make a lot since it’s my first time trying out the recipe, and it was enough for 6 Kit Kat cookies and 6 Reese’s cookies (I don’t have any Snickers on hand, unfortunately). And they came out incredible! Thank you so much for sharing this 🙂 Will definitely make these for the rest of my life!

    […] I had a jar of peanut butter and didn’t know what to cook and all of a sudden I had three ways on how to do a cookie with one single dough. The recipe of the dough I got it from Hershy’s: Best-Loved Recipes and the second cookie was adapted from Picky Palate. […]

    I made chocolate chip cookies last night using your recipe for my sons school bake sale (just regular not “stuffed” ones). However, for my hubby and I made two sinful ones. He got an oreo stuffed one and I got a reese’s peanut butter cup stuffed one. OMG. Amazing. I think I gained 5 pounds just eating it. Thanks for the recipes.

    Amanda N says:

    I stumbled across your site a couple of weeks ago when I was looking up a perfect cookie recipe to make for my boyfriend and these little bad boys popped up when I was searching and I was immediately sold. My boyfriend absolutely loves Reese’s so, of course, I had to make them and they were inhaled within two days and I was told that they were the best cookie I have ever made. The only downfall is that now he is constantly bugging me to make them again 🙂 I’m so excited to try more recipes on your site, especially the brownie-stuffed cookies, those are up next!
