Snickers Chocolate Cookie Cups Recipe

By now, you all know that I love to take something simple and take it up a notch. These cookie cups do just that! After the Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Cups I made for Valentine’s Day, I couldn’t wait to make another cookie cup. They are easy and just too fun!

These start with a chocolate cookie base that’s stuffed with a mini Snickers bar. Then it’s topped with a light chocolate peanut butter icing. Perfection!

These Snickers Chocolate Cookie Cups are soft, chewy, and full of rich chocolate and caramel! With a bite sized Snickers bar in the center of every cookie, these decadent treats have it all!



  • 3/4 cups butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 48 mini snickers bars


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/8 cup cocoa
  • 1/8 cup peanut butter
  • 12 tbsp water
  • caramel sauce


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a mini muffin tin.
2. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.
3. Add milk, egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
4. Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Dough will be thick.
5. Make balls of about 2 large tsp in size and press into the bottom of each mini muffin cup. Press the center down just a bit to make an indention, where you’ll add the mini snickers later. You want each cup to only be about 3/4 full.
6. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
7. Remove from oven (the centers may look a little undone, but they will cook more as they sit) and press mini snickers into the center of the cookie cups.
8. Allow to cool for 3-4 minutes in the muffin tin. The mini snickers will start to melt.
9. Remove cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
10. To make the frosting, beat the butter and shortening together until smooth.
11. Add the powdered sugar to the butter mixture, one cup at a time, and mix until smooth.
12. Add peanut butter and cocoa and mix until smooth.
13. Add 1-2 tbsp of water until the icing is the right consistency.
14. Top the cookie cups with the icing, then a little bit of caramel sauce.

    I made these Snicker cookies for my grandsons 12th birthday. Oh My! Absolutely unbelievably wonderful! I made half of them with Snickers and the other half with Almond Joy. A big hit, and a perfect alternative to the traditional cake. Everyone requested the recipe which I gladly shared. Will be making these over and over! Thanks!

    These are incredible looking! I have to tell you I did a double take when I saw them though…I made something very similar this past weekend. AND…my picture looks extremely similar. Great minds think alike 🙂

  5. Rachel @ Bakerita

    This is everything I want in a dessert and more. My friend Ally has an obsession with Snickers, so I’m sure once I show these to her I’ll be making them…and they’ll be quickly devoured! Pinned 🙂

    Oh wow these look amazing! I think they’d be dangerous to have around. I’d probably eat all of them in one day. I’ll head on over to check out the recipe.
