“These peanut butter cookies are so yummy and even more fun when eaten from a stick with a snickers bar surprise in the middle. This is another recipe from my mom that I haven't made in years, but remember being very tasty! You could probably use just about any cookie recipe or miniature candy bar, but I haven't tried. It's fun to use colored candy or sugar to match the occasion (red/green for Christmas, pink for a girls birthday, etc.).”
