Lately I’ve seen a few bakers showing off some seriously delectable looking, chocolate candy laden treats. I’d sit there drooling over my keyboard, envying them in their candy bar bliss. Then it dawned on me, I don’t have to sit on the sideline. With the help of a few vegan candy bars, I can induce my own sugar coma!
I settled on a peanut butter cookie base, and mixed in a “Snickers” style bar, really enjoying the combination of flavours and texture. Obviously, different candy bars will give these cookies their own unique personality, so play around with your favorite. I’m thinking a coconut bar could be interesting.
Candy Bar Cookies
1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup Margarine
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
1/4 cup Apple Butter
1/2 cup Smooth Peanut Butter (I used natural)
1 1/2 cups Roughly Chopped Candy Bar (I used 3 Go Max Go Jokerz bars)
1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375°F and prepare cookie sheets.
Stir together flour and baking soda. Set aside.
Cream together the margarine, sugar, flaxseed, and apple butter. Mix in peanut butter. Add the flour mixture and stir in until just combined.
Add candy bar and chocolate chips. If it is to difficult to stir them into the dough, then roll up your sleeves and mix them in with your hands.
Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball and flatten into a disk 1/4″ – 1/2″ thick. Place disks on cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, until golden.
Allow to cool on sheet for 3 – 5 minutes, before transferring to rack.
Makes 18 – 24 cookies.
