Who are you when you’re hungry? Personally, I want to say something really eery like “your worst nightmare” (*inserts batman voice*) – but something tells me that would sound more creepy than adorably cheesy. But the fact of the matter is that when I’m hungry I tend to do things that I normally wouldn’t. Like walk four miles to get lunch, or completely  forget my term paper on the counter at home. Eventually I wised up to the hunger issue and now I always keep a stash of SNICKERS® around!

The summer of last year my sister and I were at the beach, we ended up staying the whole day – which meant our limited store of snacks were gone before lunch came around. I started to get a little hangry, you know that potent combination of hunger and crankiness brought on by lack of snackage, and the only place to get food was miles away. So what did I do? Instead of patiently waiting until we got back to our B&B, I walked four miles to the local convenience store where I loaded up on ice tea and a pile of SNICKERS®. Four miles! In the summer heat! In flip-flops! Oy. I’m not going to even mention my sunburn.

The craziness doesn’t end there – when I’m hungry I have a habit of texting my bestie every single food emoji on my phone, it’s as if my texting etiquette falls by the wayside when I’m suffering from hunger. The worst texts are on days where I’m stuck in class or overwhelmed with work and I forget to eat until it’s too late. Luckily for me SNICKERS® is around no matter what is on my plate!

Of course now I keep a SNICKERS® in my purse, on a jar on my desk, in the fridge, and in the drawer in the table by the door. And when I run out I swing by CVS and pick up some more.

Our Big Game Treat? Snickers & Chips Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Football season has since been underway in my house – which means game time, and game time – of course – means snack time! One of my favorite every-day treats has got to be chocolate chip cookies. It’s a classic treat that everyone loves, no one can resist the allure of a good CCC. So in honor of football season, I thought I’d up my game (sorry, I had to) and take my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and make it just a little more of a winning treat!


First I stopped to pick up supplies for our game day celebration from Walmart in the form of Mini SNICKERS®, a SNICKERS® 12pk, and Starburst® FaveREDs! I know, it’s just an abundance of good things. The Starburst® were piled up in a little bucket – for easy picking – while I took my Mini SNICKERS® into the kitchen with me to make these SNICKERS & Chips Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! If you need the recipe quickly, you can just skip to the bottom, otherwise here’s how you make these decadent and game-worthy cookies:


You want to mix your dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. This recipe is so easy though that I’d say you only need two bowls and a spoon. I broke my hand blender the day I made these and was able to make them just using a spoon.


Next, you’ll mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, combine until the batter (or dough) is smooth. Next you’ll fold in your chocolate chips and refrigerate the mixture for about 30 minutes to an hour.


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and using a ice cream scoop, or spoon, spoon out your batter onto a cookie sheet leaving a generous amount of space between each cookie as they will spread. Next, take your Mini SNICKERS® and add 1-2 pieces to the top of each cookie. Then take a handful of chips and crumble them, adding pieces to the top of each cookie. The chips give the cookie great texture and play up the saltiness of the peanuts in the SNICKERS® which contrast really well with the sweetness of the cookie as a whole. Finally, put in the oven and bake for 10-15minutes or until the bottoms of the cookie appear light golden brown.


Tah-dah! These SNICKERS & Chips Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are crazy amazing. If you love having a little bit of salty with your sweet then you’re going to love these. Plus, the caramel from the SNICKERS really help to bring this cookie to another level.


SNICKERS & Chips Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yields 12
Write a review
  1. 2 ⅓ cups of All-Purpose Flour
  2. 1 tsp Baking Soda
  3. 2 tsp Cornstarch
  4. ½ tsp Salt
  5. 1 ½ Sticks of Butter, melted
  6. 1 cup Brown Sugar
  7. ½ Cup Sugar
  8. 2 Large Eggs
  9. 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  10. 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  11. 1 Bag of Mini SNICKERS
  12. 1 Bag of Potato Chips (I recommend original, ridged chips)
  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing together until no clumps are left. Fold in the chocolate chips, cover the bowl, and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spoon out your cookie dough onto your cookie sheet – I usually cover it parchment to prevent sticking. Insert 1-2 mini SNICKERS into each individual cookie, and breaking apart your chips in your hand, generously sprinkle the chip pieces over each cookie.
  5. Bake for 10-20 minutes or until just light golden brown on the bottom. Cool and enjoy!
