This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Peanut Butter Chocolate Whirligigs! Although simple in concept, these cookies take a little patience to put together. You start with a soft peanut butter cookie dough, then chill it, roll it, shape it and chill it some more while you prepare the chocolate filling. Then, roll the cookies up like cinnamon rolls and chill them again. Then, finally, you slice and bake them. These large, wonderful cookies are not meant to be works of art, but rather fun, just like their name suggests.

Who can resist soft peanut butter cookie dough wrapped around dark chocolate? Not us – and certainly not my brother! Despite their humble appearance, these cookies taste just like peanut butter truffles. The cookie dough is soft and full of flavor and the dark chocolate provides the perfect complement. So, if you’re looking for a special treat for the peanut butter lover in your life, this is it!

think you believe your cookies aren’t has picture-pretty as many of your cakes and other dishes but they look darn delicious to me. Love the name and the flavors. I also like your little New Orleans memory. Isn’t that the truth?

Anything with PB and chocolate is a winner to me!
I found these to be AMAZING, to my surprise! I agree, although not perfect-looking, they are absolutely delicious and well worth the labor. Nice job, Susan! ðŸ™‚
