I’m always amazed when I hear that someone has won a million dollars for coming up with a recipe…especially when it’s as simple as this one! I mean, who among us, couldn’t have come up with this cute idea for a dessert? The 2010 Pillsbury Bake Off winner actually won a million dollars for doing just that!
There are so many variations you could do here. I’ve used chocolate chip cookie dough instead of sugar cookie and filled it with coffee flavored ice cream, drizzled with a little Kahlua and topped with a chocolate covered coffee bean for an adult dinner party. Instead of nuts, you could also use toffee bits, crushed butterfinger, oreo cookies, coconut or any candy bar you like. Instead of jam, you could use lemon curd or caramel…think outside the box, and use your imagination! These are so much fun for kid parties, but adults love them as well!
