Do you have any leftover Halloween candy at your house? We sure do! I don't know what happened this year, but we had very few trick or treaters out in our neighborhood.
Since I have so much leftover candy, I thought I might take one of my favorite recipes for oatmeal cookies and stuff each cookie with a Snickers candy bar. I baked these stuffed cookies in muffin tins and when I took them out of the oven, I thought they looked like cute little muffins. Boy, were they good! These Snickers Stuffed Oatmeal Cookie Muffins aren't huge either, they're bite sized, or really "two-bite" sized, and right smack dab in the center of each of these little muffins is a yummy bite of candy goodness!
These are so easy and fun to make! I begin by preparing an oatmeal cookie recipe. I blend the butter and sugars together, then add the eggs and mix.
In a separate bowl, blend the flour, baking soda and salt together and slowly add it to the wet ingredients. Then, stir in the oats.
Place a tablespoon of the oatmeal cookie batter into the base of a muffin tin and place 1/2 of a fun size Snickers bar on top of each dollop of cookie dough.
Cover the Snickers bar with another tablespoon of cookie dough.
Bake for about 10 minutes and there you have it...a Snickers Stuffed Oatmeal Cookie Muffin!
Oh yes! These are heavenly! Even though they're technically muffins, they've got the sweet taste and the texture of a cookie.
I certainly don't think I'll only be making these Snickers Stuffed Oatmeal Cookie Muffins after Halloween each year, after all...they do sell Snickers year round...don't they?
