Ingredients:

  • 1 8 oz package of softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 pound of butter
  • 1 cup sifted all purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped Snickers miniatures candy bars
  • 1/2 cup chopped semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

Makes approximately 3 dozen.

Mix softened cream cheese, butter, and flour with dough hook attachment on mixer.  Chill dough for 1-2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

On a well floured surface, roll the dough out to approximately 1/8″ thick.

Using a knife or a 2″ square cookie cutter, cut dough into 2″ squares.  Transfer to cookie sheet.

Sprinkle a small amount of the chopped Snickers and chopped chocolate chips into the center of each square.  With a small brush, moisten the edges of the square with water and place a second square of dough over top of the first to create the “pillow”.  Pinch the seams together.

Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool and drizzle with melted chocolate or a thin confectioners’ sugar icing.
