Sugar cookies are a very popular treat to leave Santa for Christmas eve, but we thought we’d make our house stand out this year by making Santa some cookies that he’ll remember. These unsuspecting little sugar covered sugar cookies have a surprise inside that Santa will love, a miniature Snickers! I just made a simple sugar cookie recipe and then placed the Snickers inside a ball of cookie dough and rolled them in my hand. Then I rolled them in sugar and baked them. They were good cooled, but amazing just baked and warm out of the oven. If you have an unfortunate peanut allergy, just replace the snickers with a miniature nut free candy bar, like a Mars bar. Santa will be very appreciative of these cute little tasty cookies on Christmas eve. Don’t forget to leave him some milk or eggnog to go along with them.
