    Fun size Snickers are the perfect size to stuff cookies when cut into fourths. Using a large cookie scoop or small ice cream scoop I scoop the dough and then press the Snickers square into it, cover it with dough and then release to the cookie sheet. A little fresh cracked sea salt gives them added texture and flavor.
