These Snickers Almond Butter Mini Pies are so much fun and a tasty change of pace. Who doesn’t love their own little mini pie?

We all love peanut butter, right? What about almond butter? As much we all love peanut butter, sometimes a change is nice just to mix things up a bit.

Almond butter is a fun & tasty way to give things a fun new spin. I know some people use almond butter and various nut butters all the time, and some people not so much. No problem, here’s an easy way to do it.

These mini pies have such a nice smooth flavor with the almond butter, but really it’s kind of a subtle flavor change and I love that!

This dessert is wonderful because it’s just a little different, but still has those familiar favorites. Hope you give this one a try!

Imagine two different forms of delicious milk chocolate, and just the right amount of Snickers Almond Bars chopped up and melted in just a bit! Sound good? Oh, they are!   

Be sure to follow me on Pinterest!

I love to play around with rice krispie treats and make them exactly how I want them to be! Yes almost everyone makes rice krispie treats, BUT not everyone makes them the same way!

These will quickly become a go-to treat for you if you’re looking for something that takes care of that chocolate craving, is full of flavor, but isn’t too heavy or rich!

In my opinion there are just times when a person needs chocolate, but doesn’t want something rich. It happens to me all the time! One, or two, of these bars does the trick. Just sayin. :)

My Double Chocolate Snickers Rice Krispie Treats are made with delicious milk chocolate, but you could just as easily use a different chocolate if you prefer!

At first glance it may seem like there’s a lot of chopped candy on top of these bars, but there isn’t. Personally I like to chop the candy for the top of the bars a bit finer than the candy that goes into the bars.

I thinks it makes eating them much more pleasurable! It also makes the candy go A LOT farther, because it is chopped finer.

Apple (Pie) Flower Bowl, what’s that, you may ask? An Apple (Pie) Flower Bowl is all the best parts of an apple pie, in a Ramekin, with a few Snickers bites, and topped of with a wonderful golden brown crust! Are you with me?

This is what I like to call an Apple (Pie) Flower Bowl. It isn’t exactly an apple pie, but it does have all of the best parts of an Apple Pie!

These little Ramekin treats are filled with lots of fresh apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, just a few Snickers bites, and of course topped with crust.

This is going to be a pretty straight-forward post. The idea is really quite simple so why make it complicated? Whether you make your own chocolate chip cookie dough or buy refrigerated cookie dough is up to you. Either way these treats are sure to turn out yummy!

In case you haven’t seen Snickers bites yet, this is what the bag looks like. I bought these at my local Target. I’m sure other stores have them as well. I just don’t where yet. It appears as though there is just the one size – 8 ounces. Just about perfect for most recipes!

Snickers Cookie Squares

Makes 12-24 bars, depending on how you cut them.

Ingredients                                                                            010

1 stick (1/2 cup butter), softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg, at room temperature

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons vanilla pudding mix

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1 – 8 ounce bag Snickers bites

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan with nonstick spray.

2. Combine flour, baking soda, vanilla pudding mix and salt in a small bowl; set aside.

3. Beat butter and sugars together on medium speed until fluffy and creamy. Mix in egg and vanilla until well combined.

4. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and half on the Snickers bites. It doesn’t need to be exact just kind of eyeball it. Dough will be sticky.

5. Pour dough into 13-in. x 9-in. pan, spread out evenly so dough is spread evenly. Either use fingers, or place a small plastic bag over hand, spray with nonstick spray and spread evenly.

6. Take the other half of the Snickers bites and position them evenly on the dough. Gently press them into the dough just a little bit.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into squares.

Makes 24 bars, or at some houses more like 12. :)

Megamommy Notes

* If desired, you could substitute 2 cups of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough instead of making cookie dough from scratch.

* When I make these tasty treats like to put the entire glass pan on a cookie sheet, and then in the oven to bake. This will help keep the caramel soft and baked to perfection.

Double Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie

double pb skillet cookie pic01

 I think skillet cookies are quite possibly one of our family’s favorite methods for making cookies! The biggest thing to remember about a skillet cookie is that you want to make sure you don’t over-bake the skillet cookie.

With a skillet cookie, you want to bake the skillet cookie until just set. You want the middle to be a little soft when you take it out of the oven; or once it cools it will be too dry.

I don’t really know why, but Wednesday seems to be the perfect day for cookies. Today’s cookie of choice is Double Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie. :)

If you love peanut butter & chocolate, you will love this cookie!

Use any ingredients you want to. I simply looked at what I had on hand, mostly odds and ends, put together a few of my favorite flavors and that was it. I find more and more my kids love the impromptu desserts that we create. They think it’s fun to see different things thrown together that aren’t already in a recipe.

I may have mentioned this before, but I am a huge fan of the Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes. Why? Because they always turn out well and they’re very easy to work with when you have limited time.

I am telling you all this because we all have busy lives, and it’s nice to have a go-to in the pantry that you know you can easily make a tasty little dessert with.

Skillet cookies are great fun for casual get-togethers, camping, busy school nights, sleep-overs, and just about any occasion you can think of, kids love them!

MM TIP: Make sure you use an oven-safe skillet! Most skillets say on the bottom if they’re oven-safe or not. If the skillet is ove-safe but you’re not sure about the handle, simply wrap the handle in aluminum foil. Make sure handle is wrapped well.
