Snickers Cookies Jan Peterson

2 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda

1 cup brown sugar 1 cup butter

2 tsp. vanilla 3/4 cup cocoa

1 cup sugar 2 eggs

1 cup chopped nuts

 

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda. Mix well. In large bowl beat 1 cup sugar with brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and beat well. Add flour mixture and blend. Stir in cup of nuts. For each cookie, shape about 1 heaping Tablespoon of dough around 1 bite size snickers candy (I used small bars and cut into 4 pcs.) covering completely. In small bowl, combine remaining nuts, ground up pretty fine, with 1 Tbsp. sugar. Press 1 side of each ball into the nut mixture and place, nut side up, two inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 7 to 10 minutes until set and slightly cracked. Cool 2 minutes and remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely. These are very addicting--use caution. Note: I used cup crisco (butter flavor) in place of part of the butter because I think it makes cookies a little more crispy.)
