Hello #CookieFriday! It’s been a long week – so happy you are finally here!
Today’s cookies are exactly how cookies should be: chocolaty, sweet and delicious ;) And pretty easy to make. I always forget to mention that ;)) Snickers Cookies. Mmmmmm…
I really like to experiment a bit when making cookies. All you have to do is to make a basic dough and then add whatever you think of. Or whatever is in your cabinets. Or whatever you want to get rid of – that easy ;P
This time I had to get rid of something. Chocolate bars. The ones with caramel and peanuts. You know them ;) Normally those chocolate bars do not survive for a long time in my kitchen. They get eaten pretty quickly. Big problem for me to be honest. I buy a package of those because I want to eat actually just one – but then you have all those others smiling at you saying “eat us too!” Really big problem ;)
In a fundamental crisis like that it sometimes helps to bake cookies. Yes. With those chocolate bars for example. The ones that are talking to you. They stop talking when you make cookies with them. The cookies will start to talk to you at some point too, but that is something completely different ;P
Just kidding. I am not mentally ill an talk to my food. Just my dog… and he is talking back for real ;)
Anyways – these cookies are awesome. You should try.

DIRECTIONS / ZUBEREITUNG
2. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180°C). Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop small amounts of dough onto the baking sheets, leave enough space inbetween and bake for 8-10 minutes – the edges should be crisp and the center still a bit soft. Take out of the oven, let cool down a bit on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool down completely.
2. Den Ofen auf 180°C (350°F) vorheizen. Mit einem Eisportionierer oder Esslöffel Teigportionen auf die Bleche setzen – dazwischen genug Platz lassen und dann für 8-10 Minuten backen. Die Ränder sollten knusprig sein und die Mitte noch etwas weich. Aus dem Ofen nehmen, auf dem Blech etwas abkühlen lassen und dann auf einem Kuchengitter komplett auskühlen lassen.
