Snickers Bar Cookies

These cookies were a great way to use up an extra bag of Halloween candy and were a big hit at the office.  They’re even better if you put them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up before eating them.

When baking these cookies, stick with the lesser-end of the suggested baking time.  They may not look like they are browning when you take them out, but will dry out if you keep baking them until they start to turn golden brown.

1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
