Snicker's Cookies

For "Foto Friday," I had to do 2 pictures. The first one is of Cash and the hubs after his win! 6-1 in conference :)! 

The second, me and my boy! Easily my favorite picture lately of the two of us! He is too cute for words!

These are SO good! I do not know why I am on a cookie kick lately but clearly I can't stop making/eating them! I used to not like cookies and only like the dough but this cookie base is just too good to pass up! If you do not have caramels and peanuts, you could easily chop up some snickers and throw them in the dough instead. Sometimes, I melt some chocolate appeals and dip half of my cookie into the melted chocolate. Either way, you can't go wrong. If you have not tried this cookie base (in the S'mores CookiesTurtle CookiesAlmond Joy Cookies, or Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Cookies), get out your ingredients and give it a whirl. You will NOT be disappointed!

12 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel bites
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped (I used honey roasted nuts but you can use any kind of peanuts)

1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
3. Add vanilla, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and egg. Continue to beat until everything is incorporated.
4. Mix in the flour until everything is fully incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips, caramel bits, and chopped peanuts.
5. Scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly brown (center will not be set but continue to cook after being pulled from the oven. Let cool for five minutes on tray (if you can wait) before serving.
