Snickers Candy Bar Cookies

When the end of Halloween came, I found myself with a number of fun-size Snicker bars hanging out at my house.  I could eat them myself or bring them into work, but it also seemed like a good chance to use them for baking.  I had friends who were moving, family driving through to see other family members, and an election to celebrate being over.  This recipe seemed like a sure-bet for some post-Halloween deliciousness.  It’s from our family cookbook, and is another one submitted by a cousin of mine.  On election night, it was the perfect slightly labor intensive cookie to put together while watching the results come in.
