A new year filled with love, joy and… chocolate!

So we’ve made it to 2010! It’s a little bit like living in the future, isn’t it?

Speaking of future, I hope this future year is filled with good thing for all: love, joy and... chocolate. Just like these cookies!

These are the famous 1 million dollar cookies that won the last Pillsbury contest. But these ones, beside the peanut butter filling also have some chocolate love. If the original ones were worth 1 million dollars, these are easily worth 2 million!

You can check the original recipe here. That recipe uses refrigerated peanut butter dough, but I’ve used my favourite peanut butter cookie recipe instead. Besides this, my only change was adding some chopped dark chocolate in the middle of the peanut butter filling.

If eating a cookie like that is not a great way to start a year I don’t know what is!

I'm just glad I started off the new year by heading on over to this site... whenever I'm hungry or sad (the first happens tons more than the second) your quick jolts of chocolate caffeine pick me up :)

Super cookie! Love that you added your own PB cookie recipe AND chocolate. (THE most important change)
I must say I have been following the Pillsbury contests for years and years. And have many of the really old cookbooks they put out for their big event. Still use some of their recpies in one form or another.

I have to try this! Looks awesome with the choc filling!

comfycook said...

I would think the best part is the chocolate filling even though it is a super peanut butter cookie. The truth is very little surpasses peanut butter and chocolate.

Eliana said...
