Snickers Filled Sugar Cookies

This year we wanted to make some sugar cookies for Santa that he would remember. So I thought to put a miniature Snickers inside a basic sugar cookie and then roll it in colorful sugar. These are amazing, just use a Mars or 3-Musketeers if you don’t like nuts.

This recipe was developed for Babble’s Family Kitchen.
