Snickers Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

The countdown is almost over.  Christmas will be here in three days.  I finished all of my shopping on Wednesday, so I have been able to relax a little bit the past few days.  

I have made several batches of peanut brittle, divinity and of course cookies.  It wouldn't be Christmas without any of those.  
These soft peanut butter cookies are stuffed with my favorite candy bar . . . Snickers!  

The dough uses basic ingredients you probably already have on hand and it comes together in no time.  Stuffed cookies are actually incredibly simple to make, yet they are so impressive.  It's so fun biting into a pretty cookie and getting an unexpected delicious surprise.  Let me show you how to make them. 
Scoop out around 1 1/2 Tablespoons of chilled dough.
Flatten dough and place a Snickers in the center.  Fold up edges of dough around the Snickers and roll into a ball.
Roll Snickers stuffed dough ball into sugar until completely coated.  Place on baking sheet, bake, cool and drizzle with melted chocolate.  Enjoy! 

I hope you all have a wonder Christmas and a Happy New Year :)
