Starburst Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Have you ever thought of stuffing Starburst® candies into Chocolate Chip Cookies? No? Me either. That is until I was allowed to participate in this #BigGameTreats promo with #CollectiveBias!
At first I thought about stuffing some SNICKERS® into crescent rolls and shape them into footballs… As good as those are, and yes we have made them before – yum! We decided to make Starburst Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. In addition to making Starburst Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, we also made SNICKERS Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies and SNICKERS Stuffed Crescent Rolls. Scroll through all the deliciousness!
Did your team make it to the big game this season? Ours did! Hopefully, our team’s adrenaline will continue on and we’ll emerge victoriously with a huge blowout like we did in the championship game! No matter who wins or loses, we’ll be sure to have a great home-gating party with some awesome snacks.
For the big game we’ll be making a trip to Walmart to pick up our cookie recipe ingredients, snacks, drinks and other home-gating supplies.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper
- With a mixer, mix butter and sugars together until they're well combined.Beat in eggs and vanilla
- In another bowl - mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients
- Fold in Chocolate Chips with stiff spoon, (batter will be extremely thick - this is ok!)
- Using your fingers, scoop and roll cookie dough into 2 one to one and a half inch balls. Set Starburst candy between the two and roll the dough around it. Form a football shape and set on parchment lined cookie sheet. Repeat this process. Note that these cookies expand quite a bit, so leave plenty of space between them.
- Bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes, move to cooling rack, bake the next batch!
- Once they're cooled you can add icing or fondant to make laces on the football
But wait, there’s more!
SNICKERS Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you’re not feeling like a daredevil and want to make a more relaxed treat for your football game tailgating or house-gating party, you can replace the Starburst in the recipe with halved SNICKERS Fun Size candy bars, they came out awesome too! Simply cut SNICKERS Fun Size in 1/2 and put them inside the cookies just as directed with the Starburst. We even made some combo-cookies with both a slice of SNICKERS and a Starburst stuffed inside.
Snickers Stuffed Crescent Rolls
Here’s that football shaped SNICKERS Crescent Roll Treat I was telling you about. They’re easy to make and taste great. Take a crescent roll triangle, stick a SNICKERS Fun Size bar in it and roll it up. Manipulate the edges, pinch it all together so the SNICKERS doesn’t run out and shape them into footballs. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake as instructed on the crescent roll package. Note that it may take a few extra minutes to bake. Ours took 2 extra minutes to become a nice golden brown.
So, we’ve discovered some new tailgating snacks…
